Jammu and Kashmir BJP Monday accused National Conference of sowing seeds of separatism in the state, saying the present turmoil in the Valley and what happened in 1990, 2008 and 2010 were the consequences of its communal politics.
BJP state spokesperson Virender Gupta also said National Conference (NC), now out of power, was shedding crocodiles tears, but “this would not help it as people are well aware of its politics.
“The NC is responsible for sowing the seeds of separatism and parochial politics right from its birth as Muslim Conference and it pursued the same communal agenda even after being renamed as National Conference,” Gupta told reporters here.

“The present turmoil in the valley and what happened in 1990, 2008 and 2010 were the consequences of its communal politics. It is also the result of NC’s policy of encouraging separatist forces. The demand of Greater Autonomy or pre-1952 position by it also amounts to separation from Indian Union,” he said, adding party leaders themselves off and on challenge the accession of J&K state with India.
Reacting to NC leaders blaming present government for the unrest, Gupta said during NC rule in the state, particularly during 2008-2014, there was complete chaos, utmost failure of administration, as a result development activities reached its lowest ebb.
He also said when the Valley and also some parts of Jammu region were faced with huge devastation due to floods the then Chief Minister Omar Abdullah failed to call the meeting of the state cabinet to discuss the measures to be taken to face the situation.
“There was a complete collapse of official machinery and had the security forces, NDRF teams were not deployed and immediate Central government help had not reached the Valley and Srinagar city, the losses would have been tremendous,” he added.
Gupta also said that Omar’s government failed in providing employment to the unemployed youth as was promised before the elections.
“The faulty and unreasonable policy framed by the then government where a youth employed was to get only one-third of the basic pay, caused great resentment among the youth and society by large,” he added.
