Shiv Sena - BJP

JAMMU — Shiv Sena J&K chief, Maneesh Sahani on Tuesday criticized BJP, PAGD and those fighting upcoming DDC polls in Jammu and Kashmir, saying till promises made by Modi-led Government are not fulfilled, the party will boycott the electoral exercise.

Talking to reporters in Jammu, the Sena chief said the party will not take part in upcoming DDC elections and will boycott the exercise tooth and nail.

When asked why Sena will not contest DDC polls as it expressed gratitude over the decisions taken on August 5, 2019 and led marches in the streets of Jammu, the Sena leader said that our boycott at this juncture is based on the interests of common people because the promises, made to them before annulment of special status, are yet to be fulfilled.

“BJP assured people of Jammu that Statehood will be given, development ensured and avenues of employment will be generated, but after a long spell no such promises have been materialised,” he said.

He added all those political parties contesting polls are not the well wishers of J&K. “Be it BJP, PAGD or else, they have befooled people over hollow promises,” the Sena leader said.

To a query, he said Sena will not budge from his stand if remarks like anti-national will be hurled. “We are with people who are suffering badly due to cheat of BJP after scrapping of Article 370. Whoever has to utter against Sena, he can. It will not weaken us,” he added.
