Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 15: Senior BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta, has strongly criticized the Congress and the opposition INDIA bloc for their decision to boycott 14 broadcast media anchors.
Speaking to media persons on the sidelines of a programme held at Party Headquarters in Jammu, the senior BJP leader emphasized that shunning media or any other institution will do no good to any political party, and he urged the opposition to focus on addressing substantial issues rather than targeting journalists.
He said, "Boycotting media anchors is a futile endeavor. Instead, the opposition should consider boycotting Rahul Gandhi, as he lacks the strength and vision required to lead our nation forward." He further highlighted the widespread attacks on various institutions in India by the opposition alliance, including the Election Commission and the courts.
In Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory, Kavinder also criticized the opposition for recent statements made by Congress leader Saifuddin Soz and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah, who advocated talks with Pakistan. He pointed out that these remarks came shortly after the tragic loss of security officials in an encounter with terrorists in Kashmir. He asserted that the INDIA bloc should focus on boycotting leaders like Soz and Abdullah, rather than targeting journalists.
The former Deputy Chief Minister reminded the public of Congress's historical track record of suppressing media freedom. He cited examples such as the first amendment brought by Jawaharlal Nehru to curtail absolute freedom of expression, the Emergency promulgated by Indira Gandhi, and the defamation law proposed by Rajiv Gandhi.
Kavinder emphasized the importance of safeguarding democracy, protecting institutions, and ensuring that political discourse remains focused on addressing the real concerns of the nation.
