Srinagar, Jun 23 (UNI) People's Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the BJP and the VHP of trying to dangerously polarize the situation in Jammu and Kashmir at the behest of certain quarters from the State's Raj Bhawan.
In a statement issued here today, a PDP spokesperson said from the recent anti-PDP outbursts of the BJP and VHP leaders, it is evident that for some time now some persons in the State's Raj Bhawan have been working at the behest of Hindutva forces and are trying to implement a particular agenda in the state.
''We will at no cost allow such dangerous designs to take shape in the state that has been an epitome of communal harmony and amity,'' the spokesperson said and added that any move to polarize the situation on communal lines by these elements is fraught with unimaginable dangers.
Condemning the provocative and untenable outbursts of the BJP and VHP leaders, the spokesperson said in the past also when the Government tried to check the untenable activities of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB), a vicious campaign was instigated by Raj Bhawan through BJP and RSS to incite communal frenzy across the State.
''The quarters from where the state's Raj Bhawan has been taking directions all these years have now got exposed, putting a question mark on the credibility of the highest constitutional institution in the state,'' he said and expressed hope that the new Governor would fully restore the constitutional sanctity of the Raj Bhawan.
Demanding action against the VHP leaders for openly brandishing weapons at a rally in Jammu yesterday, the spokesperson said the Government must initiate action against the elements who resorted to such a brazen disregard for law of the land by openly displaying arms at the rally.
''This is an unfortunate trend and such elements must be dealt with as per the law,'' he added.
