JAMMU: Movement for Peace, Equality and Justice (MPEJ) members on Saturday said that the time in J and K for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as well as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is crucial and testing time to come to the aspirations of the people otherwise they may face the drubbing at the helm of affairs as meted out to BJP and Congress in Delhi.

In a joint statement issued on Saturday, MPEJ members Kuldeep Kumar Rao and Ram Singh Chauhan, while commenting on the verdict of electorate in the state, said that the verdict of the people in favour of BJP in Jammu and PDP in Valley, is against the traditional political system bereft of sincerity and full of corruption, scandals and favoritism.

“People in Kashmir as also in Jammu want equitable development on ground for all three regions and virtually have nothing to do with Article 370, Armed Force Special Power Act (AFSPA) etc which have become an instrument in the hands of politicians to mislead the common man emotionally for blackmailing,” they mentioned.
