Weeks after the fall of Mehbooba Mufti government, Union minister Jitendra Singh on Sunday said that BJP has set an example by breaking its alliance with PDP without any pressure as “discrimination” with Jammu region was not acceptable to the party.
He said the decision of the BJP has baffled the opposition parties in Jammu and Kashmir which have never witnessed such a thing in their political history. “BJP is the only party which can become part of any government to carry forward developmental agenda or can break away if it is not satisfied with the pace of development works. It is not acceptable to the BJP to stay in power while compromising with the interests of the people of Jammu region,” he said.
Singh, the minister of state in Prime Minister’s office, was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a party function in Kathua district.
He said, “With full authority, I want to make it clear that over the last four years of Modi government, there was no discrimination with any part of the region as far as financial and development packages are concerned.” PTI
