12/1/2018 10:29:05 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Dec 1: The BJP perhaps is the only political party in the country, nay in the world, which has no ideology and which can join hands with any political party to form government or become a part of the government.

In 1996, the BJP under Vajpayee and Advani flirted with the autonomywalas (Abdullahs) and made Omar Abdullah a minister at the Centre. Abdullahs didn't compromise their ideology or abandoned their demand seeking greater autonomy for J&K on the ground that it was a Muslim-majority state and that it didn't fav...
