Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) Tuesday asked the Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to reinvestigate the Hawala cases registered against the separatists in Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement BJP spokesman, Khalid Jehangir said, “Many cases about separatists receiving money through Hawala channels were registered in different police stations but investigations were left half way. Chief Minister should get these cases reinvestigated to ascertain how much money was pumped into Jammu and Kashmir to keep the pot boiling.”
The BJP spokesman alleged that separatists have built mansions and have a lavish life style. “The Chief Minister, who is also the Home Minister of the state, should order a probe to ascertain the source of income of the separatists,” he added.
He said that people of Jammu and Kashmir have pinned lot of hopes on the BJP-PDP regime and it’s the duty of the people at the helm to ensure that Government lives upto their expectations. “Separatists have been at the forefront of fomenting trouble and they have received huge amounts from various channels to ensure that disturbance prevails in JK. It’s the duty of the government to expose such elements, who are promoting violence through various means, including orchestrating street protests,” the BJP spokesman added.
He said scores of cases which were registered against separatists were not taken to their logical conclusion for the reasons best known to the people who ruled the state during the past two decades. “BJP hopes that the incumbent Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, would refrain from following the footsteps of his predecessors and would write a new chapter in history of JK by teaching violence mongers a lesson,” he added.
He said that people of Jammu and Kashmir are fed up of violence and want to live a peaceful life. “JK has witnessed senseless violence and bloodshed for the past 25-years. People want dirty games to end and Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed can play a vital role to end violence and uncertainty in the state,” the BJP spokesman said.
