- Failed Congress dividing people on region, religion basis: Yudhvir Sethi
JAMMU: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vice president Yuduvir Sethi today said that talks and terror cannot go together. If Pakistan has any intentions to hold talks with India, it has to shun the path of violence and restore peace on borders. The way it backstabbed India after DGMO levels talks, Pakistan for the moment needs a befitting reply. Yudhvir Sethi who was speaking as Chief guest at an intellectual meet organized by BJP as part of mass contact programmes which was attended by war veterans, retired engineers, doctors, businessmen, social activists, party workers and people drawn from other walks of life. He said Pakistan had been aiding and abetting terrorism and misguiding youth of Kashmir to keep the pot boiling.
It was end result of Pakistan's failed attempts that Burhan Wani was made to create a terror group which was finally eliminated by valiant soldiers. At a time when youth could have made a fortune for their families and nation, they were brainwashed to take to guns. The BJP leader said India in no way will allow its soil to be used for terror activities. Pakistan, Yudhvir Sethi said stands exposed at international fora and even its former prime minister recently admitted that PM Narendra Modi's and India's foreign policy had isolated their nation. Today all three forces of India including Army, Navy and Air Force have been modernized, provided with better weaponry and given a free hand to deal with terrorism which has given a boost to their morals.
On the economic front, India has rewritten a new script where inflation has come down, foreign reserves increased, and tax system like GST have simplified ease of doing business. It was because of GST and demonetization that black money was checked, one nation one tax system introduce and most importantly the parties whi used to use black money in polls dumped. Successive victories of BJP in all states and acceptance of new tax regimes speak of the fact that country wants a change and have written Congress off. Failed Congress on the other hand is trying to divide people on communal lines and is using region a religion as tool to affect in its nefarious designs, Yudhvir Sethi asserted.
Omi Khajuria, BJP Distt President Rural, Jammu said schemes like Jan Dhan, Ujjawalla Yojana, PMAY and Swatch Bharat Abhiyaan are flagship programmes of BJP led government at the centre which intends to give people of India an honorable life. He further said the nation has virtually rejected Congress and its allies who were dividing nation and now that a new era has dawned India is going to see massive socio-economic growth in days to come.
