The Communist Party of India-Marxist on Thursday said that after bringing down the PDP-led government in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP will target Kashmiris as anti-national and harbourers of militants, reports claimed.
“The BJP decision to bring down the government is a conscious political move keeping in mind the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2019,” newsgatherer IANS quoted an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy”, as saying.
“The BJP is going to target the Kashmiris as anti-national and harbourers of militants. It has already accused the PDP-led government of having failed to tackle militancy”, the report said.
The Communist Party of India-Marxist said that the issue of Kashmir was necessary for the Bharatiya Janata Party for its political platform for the Lok Sabha elections in the whole country.
“It wants to project a communal campaign that while it has relentlessly sought to suppress militancy and protect national security, it was thwarted in this effort by the PDP and the Kashmiri Muslims who are soft on militancy and Pakistan”, IANS reported.
