JKNPP protests against PDP-BJP govt for ‘deteriorating’ situation in J K 17.2.2022 General News
The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today staged a protest demonstration here, claiming that the PDP-BJP alliance was responsible for the deteriorating situation in the state. Led by party chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh, dozens of JKNPP activists assembled at Exhibition Ground here amid chanting of anti-BJP and anti-government slogans. “The government is bestowing premium upon anti-nationals while disparaging the nationalists in the state. The ominous BJP-PDP alliance is squarely responsible for the deteriorating situation in the state,” Singh said. He said the “atmosphere of anarchy” was conducive for the separatists and the anti-national elements to go on rampage without any fear of law and order. The protesters accused the BJP of “placating” the secessionist forces for “saving its alliance” with the PDP. Referring to the amnesty announced by the government for first time stone-pelters, he said it was a “morale boosting moment” for 9, 730 such youths .

The decades-long dispute with neighbouring Tamil Nadu has always been a sensitive and volatile issue and, any adverse verdict by the Supreme Court against Karnataka could have ignited a political time bomb ahead of the Assembly polls in the state. All parties on Friday welcomed the verdict of the apex court, reducing the allocation to Tamil Nadu by 14.75 tmcft and, at the same time expressed that there could have been more allocation to Karnataka.
