Shinde's remarks: BJP’s protests in J&K on Jan 24
Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of the BJP will organise protests in all districts in the state on January 24 against Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's controversial remarks during the recent Congress conclave in Jaipur.
"The party will organise protests in all districts in the state on January 24 to protest Shinde's remarks," JK BJP chief Jugal Kishore Sharma said.
Yesterday, the BJP demanded sacking of Shinde over his charge that the saffron party and the RSS promoted "Hindu terrorism".
It also announced nation-wide protests on January 24 against the remarks.
Both the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre and the NC-Cong dispensation in Jammu and Kashmir were pursuing "anti-people" policies, Sharma said.
The BJP would vigorously expose "misdeeds" of both the governments, he told a meeting of newly-nominated state BJP office-bearers here.
State BJP general secretary Ashok Koul invited suggestions from the office-bearers for better coordination among party workers and leaders.
