Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

The BJP Monday wanted to know why was silent over the remarks of that his party would strive to restore Jammu and Kashmir's autonomy that could include having a wazir-(prime minister).

Omar Abdullah's statement means having a separate constitution, BJP national P Muralidhar Rao said.

"It means a separate flag. having two Prime Ministers, having two flags and having two constitutions.

Is it acceptable for India? This is a straight question and it would be raised in Tamil Nadu, and even in entire country," he told reporters here.

"...stands for dilution...it stands for balkanisation of India," he said.

Rao sought to know why DMK M K Stalin, an alliance of the in Tamil Nadu, also remained silent on the matter.

The asserted his party was for one Nation, one Constitution.

while addressing a public rally at Bandipora, North Kashmir recently, said, his party will work towards getting back the coveted posts of 'Sadr-e-Riyasat' (president) and 'Wazir-e-Azam' (prime minister) for Jammu and Kashmir.

On Minister H D Kumaraswamy reported remarks that air strikes on terror camps at Balakot should not be celebrated, Rao sought to know whether it was the idea of the Congress or the UPA.

"What is the link of Indian Muslims with the Balakot of If we celebrate the achievement of Indian forces, it is not partisan," he said.

"Kumaraswamy's comment polarises and is an insult to Indian Muslims," he said.

Rao also hit out at Gandhi for not clarifying his stand on the comments allegedly made by Kumaraswamy.

"My party's argument is India is not safe with the Congress. India's unity and political sovereignty are threatened because they (UPA) have multiple agenda within the coalition," he said.

On comments that would be after the polls, he said, "there are no takers for it.... the anti-BJP opposition is not accepting this proposal."

"So, there is no NDA vs the Rest... Rest is not united. Anti-BJP is not united," he claimed.
