Srinagar (NVI): Senior BJP leader and the party’s campaigner for DDC polls in Kashmir, Syed Shahnawaz Hussain, today said that ‘Gupkar Gang’ is “befooling” people of J&K and showing them dreams which can never turn into reality.
Hussain said that Mehbooba and Abdullahs, partners in the Peoples’ Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), are showing dreams to the people that can never turn into reality. “Kashmir lives in the brain and heart of Narendra Modi. It can be made a tourist hub, but politicians have ruined this picturesque part of India,” he said.
“We all know Article 370 is a history, buried under the earth. Whatever gets buried never gets life again. Leaders who run the ‘Gupkar Gang’ know it well that Article 370 can’t be restored but still they are trying to befool people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he while addressing a presser at the Tourist Reception Center (TRC) here.
Pertinently, District Development Constituency (DDC) elections are being held in Jammu and Kashmir and to campaign for the BJP candidates, top Central leaders from the party are visiting and addressing party workers in Kashmir Valley.
Shahnawaz Hussain arrived here today and addressed a press conference in presence of Kashmir based top party leadership. He is national spokesperson and CEC member of the BJP and a former cabinet minister.
Hussain also echoed Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s remarks and described ‘Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration’ (PAGD) as ‘Gupkar Gang’. Amit Shah in a series of tweets had called PAGD as ‘Gupkar Gang’ saying this ‘gang’ has gone global.
In response to a question, Hussain said that Congress is scared of PM Modi and Amit Shah. “We asked Congress to clear their stand on ‘Gupkar Gang’. This party out of fear immediately distanced itself from this ‘Gang’ which is more dangerous than any other common gang.”
He said regional parties like National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party never worked in the interest of people but the leaders of these parties filled their coffers, looted resources of Jammu and Kashmir and resorted to nepotism and corruption.
“BJP doesn’t believe in ‘dynastic rule’ but in democracy. We have fielded even those candidates in these DDC elections who have no political background or are associated with affluent political families. This thing you will never see in PDP and NC that give priorities to their family members,” Hussain said.
