In a veiled attack on the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina Tuesday said those promising to bring back Article 370 are playing emotive politics.
He said that Article 370, which gave special status to J&K, was abrogated on August 5, 2019 and has now become a part of history.
“No one can restore Article 370 and political parties making false promises of bringing it back are playing emotional politics,” the BJP leader said in a statement after an emergency meeting of the party here.
In an apparent reference to Mehbooba’s demand for talks with everyone including Pakistan, Raina said India has always favoured friendly relations with its neighbours which should not be taken as its weakness.
“As far as Pakistan is concerned), it has launched a proxy war against India but will never succeed in its designs. Confidence can be developed through dialogue but Pakistan has never displayed its sincerity to have good relations with India,” he said.
“There can be no talk till this neighbour stops supporting terrorism in any form,” the BJP leader said.
