Administrative apathy throws Hindu Candidate to grave risk-Chetan Sharma

4/7/2017

SRINAGAR: In a meeting held in Ganderbal today, Chetan Sharma, contesting candidate for 2-Srinagar Lok Sabha Constituency in the Bye-polls alleged that the biased approach of the administration, particularly the Police made him and his party workers to face the worst kind of risk during campaign in the Constituency spread-over three large districts.
Sharma is contesting elections on the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha Mandate and has undertaken tours in many areas including the far flung Lar in Ganderbal.
There was hardly any security arrangement despite pre-hand information having been passed on to the Police Control Room, today and the contesting candidate was left at the mercy of God.
It is worthwhile to mention here that the party had since been requesting for providing some safe place for stay of the candidate and workers but it was only a week earlier that two rooms were allotted in a hotel in Rajbagh, that are lacking the basic living conditions.
On April 3, 2016 at about 1600 hours, a groups of stone pelters attacked the hotel in which the front mirror of the escort vehicle was broken. A case viz FIR No.6/2017 u/s 336 RPC stands registered in Police Station Rajbagh, following which the present SHO Rajbagh took personal interest and began investigation of the case which is going on. Patrolling was intensified by him around the place of stay of the ABHMS party workers.
Experience for a Hindu party that is working on an agenda to bring closer the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh provinces remained very bad as the biased Police and administration fully ignored the party workers as they were more busy with the ruling party interests as well as the former Chief Minister Dr Farooq Abdullah, whom they might be seeing as the winning candidate.
He has been inventing new words and terminology just to woo the Kashmiri voters for his personal benefit. These so-called Kashmiri politicians have done nothing to improve the condition of Kashmir and Kashmiris and have benefitted by drawing a deep line between the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Political groups in Delhi also have been running their business in the name of religion and using Kashmir as a platform to maximize their profits.
Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha is of the vie3w that we have not to think on the national lines and create a group jointly to save the state. During campaign, the Mahasabha has received overwhelming response from the Kashmiri youth and found in them a zeal to defeat the nefarious designs of the political parties who are claiming to be their well wishers.
We shall be forming a political party jointly after these elections are over and our candidates shall be contesting elections in future with a strategy that the Kashmiri candidates will file nominations from Jammu and Jammu candidates from Kashmir, said Sharma. This will bridge the gap and a new Jammu and Kashmir will emerge.
