Jammu, Apr 11 (UNI) Taking serious note of Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement at a public rally, the BJP today demanded disclosure of names of politicians who allegedly wanted unrest to continue in the state.
Mr Azad, while addressing a public meeting at Ganderbal yesterday, had cautioned people against political leaders and their pen-wielding supporters who supported violence and killings in the state for their self-interests.
Reacting to Mr Azad's statement, BJP state President Ashok Khajuria, at a press conference here, said, ''The disclosures made by the chief minister are very startling and call for immediate action against those with dubious credentials.'' ''Mr Azad should tell the public about those people who have vested interest in perpetuating violence and are against the restoration of peace and further development of the state,'' Mr Khajuria said.
He said he would write to the Chief Minister to disclose the names of those politicians, government officials and media persons who had vested interest in promoting violence.
''BJP will seek full details on all the dubious persons through the RTI (Right to Information) Act,'' he said.
''It is a matter of grave concern that Mr Azad has not taken any action against undesirable elements in political establishment, bureaucracy and elsewhere.'' Mr Khajuria warned Mr Azad that failure on his part to act against the ''people with vested interest'' would send a clear message to the general public that the Congress-led government in the state was heading an apparatus which was not only corrupt to the core but also the one working for the country's disintegration.
