VHP today accused the Congress, Left parties and JD-U of openly working for separatists in Jammu & Kashmir who were “betraying” the country for “so many years” despite public money being spent on them by previous governments at the Centre and the state.
VHP joint general secretary Surendra Jain said the all-party delegation that recently visited the state “has not failed but has many achievements” as it cleared the air on “all those who are with the separatists – CPI, CPI-M, Congress and JD-U”.
“These four parties openly work with separatists, promote them and even go to the extent of offering them advice. Probably the separatists work at their behest,” he said.
“It also came out that how much money is being given to separatists. They were betraying the country for so many years and the Congress and Kashmir governments were doling out public money to them. Thus, when the issue of stopping aid to them came, the Congress was most disturbed and that is why the Centre softened its stand on separatists,” he said.
Referring to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s statement that separatists comprise only 5 per cent of the state’s population and that the remaining people are patriotic, Jain said, “She openly said that the facilities and aid being given to separatists be stopped. This is also an achievement of the all-party delegation.”
The VHP leader also appealed to the Modi government to come out with a reply before the Supreme Court that would pave the way for introduction of a uniform civil code in the country.
“The affidavit filed by Muslim Personal Law Board depicts their perverted mindset against which the Muslim women have now come out in the open.
“The Centre should come out with its reply in the form of an affidavit before the Supreme Court. We appeal to the Centre to come forward with its old commitment of bringing in a common civil code,” he said.
Jain also criticised the Kerala government for the proposed ban on holding RSS shakhas in temple premises, saying “the state government should not interfere in religious affairs and tell who will enter temples and who not”.
