Ram Madhav said two families have ruined J&K through a family rule. He also added that BJP appreciates new force in Kashmir to counter dynasty politics.
Srinagar| Keeping the speculations alive over on the revocation of article 35 A, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) national General Secretary Ram Madhav today said that whatever decision the Government of India would take over the issue would for the betterment of J&K. He also lashed out at National Conference and PDP for creating war hysteria in Kashmir at a time when the stage is set for Assembly polls in the State.
Madhav while addressing a press conference here at SKICC said that some political parties have once again started talking out of their frustration and they are now stating something like “Barood etc” if article 35 A goes. “I would like to clarify here, that whatever decision GoI or the court takes where the issue of article 35 is being discussed, will be for the benefit of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and country,” Madhav said.
The BJP National General Secretary said that that BJP will contest every seat in Jammu and Kashmir. “We would also like to see various other parties who have clean past and present to fight elections so that the two parties, who have ruined the state by resorting to rampant corruption, are kept out of power,” he said.

The BJP’s point man for Kashmir said that some political parties are trying to create water hysteria by saying, “this and that will happen.” “Mehbooba (PDP chief) has even crossed limits by claiming that barood say khelna etc (playing with the powder keg). This is strange as they are doing it at a time when State is all set to go through polls,” he said.
To a query that Kashmir was under tight grip of rumours that suggest article 35 A would be revoked given the troop arrival in Kashmir, he said arrival of forces is to strengthen the counter-insurgency grid and it has nothing to do with the article 35 A. “Whatever is done for Article 35 A, will be for the benefit of J&K and the country,” he reiterated,
He also said that security forces and the governments at the Centre and State are committed to wipe out “militancy from the state” and so far major success has been achieved. “Now the action will be taken against OGWs as the problem is not one day old but several decades old,” he said.
Talking about the BJP’s bitter break-up with the PDP, Ram Madhav said that the BJP left govt with PDP because PDP was interested in violence than progress.
