Jammu, Nov 21 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir State BJP President Ashok Khajuria today demanded that former Chief Minister and MP Dr Farooq Abdullah be booked for challenging the legal accession of the state to the Indian Union and also for raising objections to the singing of 'Vande Matram.' Addressing a press conference here, BJP state president alleged that leaders like Dr Farooq Abdullah, former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti are delivering such statements to woo voters in Kashmir as state assenbly elections are round the corner.

''Anti-national statements are being used by these leaders just to give an impression to the various militant outfits that they are close to them,'' alleged the state BJP chief.

Mr Khajuria also said that they should be booked by the government for flaring up anti-Indian policies.

He also alleged that when National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were in power in Jammu and Kashmir, there was no demand of autonomy and de-militarization of this state but today when they are out of power, they give out pro-Pakistan statements to catch the attention of voters in the Valley.

''Congress is responsible for debacle in Jammu and Kashmir and if the party has no role in supporting anti-Indian policies then PDP should be thrown out of the coalition,'' Mr Khajuria said asserting that Congress in the state and Centre as well, played a ''politics of differences and instead of uniting people it has divided the people of the state.

The BJP state president also demanded withdrawal of security cover of these leaders.

''Farooq Abdullah should seek apology from the people of the state for his rebel 'rousing statements,' added Mr Khajuria for his erstwhile NDA ally.
