Zero Tolerance Against Attempts To Jeopardize ‘Jammu Interest’: Devender Singh Rana


SRINAGAR: BJP leader and former NC provincial president, Devender Singh Rana today reiterated his stance of zero-tolerance against any attempt to jeopardize “Jammu Interest”, a statement issued by the BJP said.

He said the people of the province are committed in their resolve for their political empowerment by being equitable shareholders in the political hemisphere of J&K.

“We are confident that the era of injustice and discrimination against Jammu province will end,” Mr Rana said while addressing a delegation from the BJP Mandal Mathwar, adding that such a measure would be “course correction” of the fault lines of the past.

He said Jammu no longer will accept the role of a ‘second fiddler’. For achieving the objective of empowering Jammu, no sacrifice means anything, he said and reiterated people’s resolve to fight for the cause of Jammu and its people, irrespective of caste, creed and religion.

“He said the Jammu Declaration emanating from Jammu, by Jammu will be for inclusive Jammu & Kashmir, which should get a fair deal on all counts,” the statement read.

Rana said, “The firm and visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi holds promise for the people to live with honour and dignity with no one in the Union Territory nurturing the apprehension of being discriminated against, deprived and dominated politically. This will be in consonance with the concept of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas.”

“For getting their rightful share in every sphere, he said the onus lies now on the people to close their ranks and unite under the banner of the BJP, which will make Jammu, J&K and the nation strong,” the statement further read.

Talking about the challenges confronted to Jammu and Kashmir, Rana expressed confidence in the Central leadership.

He also said that no attempt to weaken the sovereignty and integrity of the nation can be tolerated, adding, “There is no room for promoting activities against the nation.”

Recalling the August 5 decision, Rana said that the perception about Jammu and Kashmir changed in the country, with compatriots feeling satisfied about “total integration.”
