Jammu, Feb 9: Senior BJP leader Devender Singh Rana today said the divisive politics is in the DNA of Congress.
He said the north-south narrative generated in sheer desperation over losing ground across the country is not new as the so-called grand old party has already bruised the national psyche by encouraging and promoting separatism in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The nation is still grappling with the historic blunders of the Congress and Jammu and Kashmir has been the worst victim and sufferer of its wrong policies,” Rana said while interacting with deputations and individuals during his weekly public hearing at the BJP headquarters at Trikuta Nagar, a press release said.
He said the Congress is reaping the fruits of its evil deeds and facing political turmoil due to historic blunders and the time has come to make the party redundant. He exuded confidence that the nationalistic and pragmatic policies of the BJP will lead to Congress Mukt Bharat.
“Jammu and Kashmir has hugely suffered under the Congress and the rule by the parties supported by it for over seven decades. The misgovernance coupled with nepotism and corruption had pushed the erstwhile state to wall, which is why it has been lagging in development and economic empowerment. Now that the Yashasvi Prime Minister Narendra Modi has initiated path breaking steps to transform the Union Territory into Naya Jammu and Kashmir, the people are feeling difference for the first time and are hopeful about being equal partners in the country’s process of growth,”Rana added.
He stated that as if J&K turmoil was not enough, the Congress is now plaguing the country with sinister north-south divide in a vain bid to seek relevance in the Indian politic. Rana hoped that the people will foil all these machinations by breaking free from the shackles of division and embrace diversity as a source of strength and resilience in spirit of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas that has emerged as a huge factor for steering the nation towards holistic development and progress.
