Restoring J&K's special status will be political hara-kiri: BJP leaderAugust 06, 2020 17:10
Asserting that the nation and the national interests are always supreme, a senior Jammu and Kashmir BJP leader on Thursday said restoring the Union Territory's statehood or special status will trigger a chain reaction adversely affecting the socio-political scenario of the Union Territory. "The so-called demand for restoring J&K's special status or statehood is not an issue for the government at present. It will have a chain reaction," said Ashwani Chrungoo, in-charge of the J&K BJP's department of political affairs.
These are the issues within the purview of the Parliament and raising such demands without application of mind is tantamount to political opportunism, he said addressing a conference. "It will ultimately lead to political hara-kiri for the people of the UT, he said, adding the central administration of J&K was necessitated due to its security-related political situation". No one has got a license to do anything that damages the national interest in the strategic UT of J&K, he asserted. -- PTI
