Hitting out at opposition National Conference for projecting separatists as key stakeholders in Kashmir, BJP today alleged that the NC is fuelling the ongoing unrest by its "anti-peace" statements and playing with the career of Kashmiri students. "Not even a single day passes when the NC leadership is not making statements which are detrimental to peace and normalcy in valley and are thus adding fuel to the ongoing unrest, the statements are aimed at projecting separatists as key stakeholders in Kashmir", BJP Jammu and Kashmir unit president Sat Sharma said here. It is very unfortunate that NC is not concerned for the well being of Kashmiri masses and the development of the valley, he alleged. "The NC leadership did not even hesitate to play with the career of the students while making repeated demand for postponement of JKBOSE examinations, when the students themselves are approaching the Chief Minister and the Education Minister for holding examinations in time and are against postponing the same", Sharma said. He said both the Centre and the state government are working hard to restore normalcy in the valley.
Both are committed to early resumption of education across the valley and now even students are defying bandh calls and attending classes but contrary to it NC is demanding postponement of exams. "Not even a single appeal has emerged from any leader of NC to the youth to shed stone pelting. None of them have condemned killing of policemen or soldiers in attacks by terrorists", the BJP state president said. While the entire world condemned the Uri fidayeen attack, the NC preferred to maintain stoic silence, he said. "What the NC has been doing during all these days of unrest in Kashmir is unhealthy politics", Sharma said and alleged that the "NC leadership wants to promote Pak agenda by repeatedly demanding talks with Pakistan and involvement of separatists, which is highly unfortunate".
