SRINAGAR: A BJP leader’s son joined the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party. Identified as Vinod Kumar, son of former BJP MLA from Chenani, Dina Nath, joined the JKNPP along with his supporters, Panthers Party said in a statement.
Welcoming the convert from BJP to his party, Panthers chairman Harsh Dev Singh said that those who were swayed by the “grandiloquent promises and seductive slogans” saw through the real face of the saffron party and were desperately waiting to teach BJP a lifetime lesson.
Kumar also talked of party’s “persistent betrayals”.
Panthers Party that was in news for sacking its patron and founder, Prof Bhim Singh for his meeting with Dr Farooq Abdullah led PAGD seemingly has revisited its decision. The party sources, according to a local news gatherer, said that the party had constitution a committee to ace check and after its report, the issue was amicably settled. The fact-finding committee comprised JKNPP President Balwant Singh Mankotia, Gagan Pratap Singh, Capt Anil Gour, both secretaries and the District President Jammu (Rural), Surinder Chouhan. It said Bhim Singh’s visit was purely personal and not connected in any way with the Gupkar declaration. “Accordingly, it was decided that Bhim Singh will continue to hold the position of party’s chief patron,” Mankotia said.
JKNPP had already opposed the Gupkar declaration and this stand of the party had been duly conveyed even by Prof Bhim Singh through the local media.
