Srinagar, Nov 21: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party's aggressive election campaigning in Jammu and Kashmir has been giving a tough competition to the state BJP, Congress and NC. On Thursday, several BJP leaders were sent to the state as per the instructions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Amit Shah, National President of BJP, Dr. Jitendra Singh, State Union Minister and several other BJP leaders from Punjab, Haryana were asked to rush to the state to counter the tide created by the election campaign launched by the Panthers Party under the leadership of Prof. Bhim Singh, the founder of the party.
In another ugly turn of events, Panthers Party District President was allegedly kidnapped in the midnight by Amit Shah's men from Ramban and forcibly baptized.
Bhim Singh, who addressed poll rallies in Banihal and Ramban constituencies yesterday, raised several serious allegations against the BJP government at the centre. Amit Shah, with his team, arrived in the state in his helicopter to counter the charges raised by Bhim Singh. At a massive election rally in Desa, Singh slammed the national parties which are opposing the Panther Party's agenda to create a separate Jammu State.
Bhim Singh accused BJP and National Conference for exploiting people in the name of religion. Congress has been exploiting the people in the name of militancy, he said.
Prof.Bhim Singh also said that the officers appointed by the Election Commission of India in the state are targetting Panthers Party.
While the bigger parties in the state, Congress, BJP and NC are using helicopters to reach remote areas, Bhim Singh managed to reach Desa, a most neglected village in Doda District and Ramban Constituency, in his vehicle.
While Bhim Singh was addressing a meeting in Desa on Friday morning, Dr. Jitendra Singh reportedly reached the venue in his helicopter. Also, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, while addressing a rally in another village Bhata in Desa, strongly criticised Panthers Party.
