Will Not Elect CM on Basis of Religion: BJP

KL Report


Minister of State Prime Minister’s Office Dr Jitendra Singh Thursday made it clear that the party will not elect Chief Minister on the basis of religion if it forms the government in Jammu and Kashmir.

As per a local news agency, CNS, Singh, while addressing party workers in Srinagar, said that BJP is the only party which doesn’t believe in dynastic rule. “If we will come to power in the state, the Chief Minister will be elected on the basis of dedication and qualities. We will not elect CM on the basis of religion, caste, creed, colour and sex,” he said.

Singh said that BJP is the only party which can give good governance in the state as its polity is based on justice and equality.

While urging upon the BJP workers to maintain close liaison with the people, Dr Singh said that ultimately they are the one, who will decide the fate of politicians. He said that every BJP workers or leader should work for the welfare of the people and should put his efforts in getting their problems addressed.

Singh said that India doesn’t need any ‘ism’ whether that may be secularism, capitalism or socialism if both Hindus and Muslims follow their religion by heart and become good human beings. “A society will be vice free if its citizen will be a true Hindu and a true Muslim. There will be communal harmony and brotherhood and we don’t need to propagate secularism then,” he said.

He stressed upon BJP workers to work hard and ensure the victory of the party in coming assembly elections. “Some people advocate election boycott and in that situation our workers must work hard and ensure the victory of the party.”
