BJP burns Saghir report copies in Jammu

via Pioneer News Service | Jammu published on January 4, 2010

The State unit of the BJP on Monday organised a series of protests across Jammu province by burning copies of the report submitted by Justice (retd) S Saghir Ahmad which had earlier proposed autonomy for J&K.

These token protests were led by several senior state BJP leaders at various places.

State BJP Chief Ashok Khajuria, led the party workers and BJP supporters in old city area of Jammu while leader of the BJP legislature party Prof Chaman Lal Gupta led protestors at Janipur and Talab Tillo.

The party leaders, while rejecting the report, said Justice Saghir Ahmed had prepared the report on the dictates of the National Conference. “Justice Ahmed has worked as a mere scribe of NC and the same is clear from the fact that it is a reworded Autonomy manifesto of NC and was submitted, instead of PM, to Jammu and Kashmir CM & NC leader Omar Abdullah, who later handed over it to the Prime Minister, as if it was a National Conference document,” a BJP leader alleged.

The party said the document was not a report based on judicial consideration of various opinions — that were submitted to it by the people of Jammu and Ladakh — but pandered only to the whims and aspirations of a section of Kashmir-based elements.

The BJP appealed to the Prime Minister to reject the report as it had not dealt with the Centre-State relationship aspect and was anti-Jammu and Ladakh, anti-national and one-sided. They declared that the party would undertake different democratic modes in the coming days against the report and not rest till it was totally rejected.

Similar protests were held across Udhampur, Reasi, Kathua, Ramban, Kishtwar, Bhaderwah, Samba, RS Pura and Akhnoor.
