The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has denied that the party’s prime-ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s representative has met any pro-freedom leader of Kashmir.
Advocate Ramesh Arora, who is in charge of BJP’s Kashmir affairs, said no one from the party approached any Kashmiri separatist leader. “We didn’t approach them.
“We have not been authorized to meet any of them,” he said.
A senior BJP leader in New Delhi said that the party can’t take any initiative over Kashmir until it retains power. “I don’t think anyone from party has met Geelani or any other separatist leader. We are not in the power yet so approaching them won’t serve any purpose at this movement,” he said.
Meanwhile, BJP’ National vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqwi when contacted said, “I don’t want to comment over it,” he said. (GNS)
