Taking a dig at the Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee (JPCC), State Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Spokesperson Pratul Shahdeo on Monday said that JPCC has become a political version of popular Bollywood flick Gangs of Wasseypur.
Addressing media persons in Ranchi on Monday, Shahdeo criticised the recent imbroglio in JPCC and said that the outgoing JPCC chief Ajoy Kumar was an experienced policeman and he knew how to identify criminals.
“The Congress party here has been left with no options for face saving. They have become a political version of Gangs of Wasseypur,” said Shahdeo, citing Kumar’s resignation letter as evidence for the “criminal culture” in the party. Kumar, in his resignation letter, had said that some of the leaders in JPCC were worse than criminals.
Shahdeo said that everything is under control in the valley but the leaders of Congress Party are still spreading rumours.
“Rahul Gandhi is still saying that situation in the valley is tense while talking to International media despite the Indian Army clarifying that the situation was completely under control. It is evident that the Congress party has more faith on International media than the Indian Army,” he added.
On homecoming of Jharkhand man, Mufeez from Saudi Arabia on the special intervention of Chief Minister Raghubar Das, he said that now Bakrid and Diwali will be celebrated
at Mufeez’s house only due to the Chief Minister’s prompt efforts.
Shahdeo also lauded the effort of Central Government for revocation of article 370 of Indian Constitution and said that in the able leadership of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and Home Minister, Amit Shah the Government has solved a problem which was plaguing the country for over 70 years.
He said that the party welcomes revocation of Article 370 and 35(A). “Our inspiration Shyama Prasad Mukherjee sacrificed for the revocation of Article 370 and 35 (A). The decision is a tribute to him,” he added.
“Permanently staying there since 1950, people belonging to Balmiki Community were not getting benefits of reservation and were forced to work as sweeper and garbage collector. Locals and labourers were not getting real benefit of fundamental rights provided by the Indian
Constitution. People of the class had no right to choose a profession of their liking,” said Shahdeo.
Any girl marrying outside Kashmir lost her share of paternal property, he added.
Elaborating loopholes of the article, the Spokesperson said that due to prohibition of ownership of property, industrialists and private companies were incurring loss. “Good Engineers, Doctors, Lawyers and other professionals did not like to go to Kashmir to pursue their profession.
Outsiders were not getting admission in the Government’s educational institutions.
This article was anti women and anti Dalit and it was also promoting discrimination among people,” he added.
