The BJP leadership has cautioned its Jammu and Kashmir state unit against playing second fiddle to the Peoples Democratic Party in the coalition government.
Facing criticism from all quarters over the unilateral decision of the PDP to release hardcore Hurriyat leader Masarat Alam Bhat, the BJP top brass has directed its state leaders to aggressively pursue its agenda in the future.
“BJP national president Amit Shah during his meeting with leaders of the state unit of party advised them that there was no need to play second fiddle to the PDP in the coalition,” media from India reported quoting a source within the party, adding that the party high command had cautioned the state leader against adopting a “submissive” approach in the coalition.
Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, who was summoned by the party brass to New Delhi said all contentious issues would be thoroughly discussed.
“All issues will be discussed with the coalition,” Nirmal told reporters in response to a question on the release of Alam and the rest of the militants whose release is under review of the government. Nirmal returned from Delhi this morning after meeting with Amit Shah.
State BJP chief Jugal Kishore, Union Minister Jitendra Singh and Health Minister of the state Choudhary Lal Singh also met the party president.
