Statement issued by Prof Virender Gupta has landed BJP in an embarrassing situation not only opposition but own party leaders are questioning their intentions.
It is alleged that instead of taking a tough stand during meeting of the GoMs, a couple of months back, BJP's representatives succumbed before their PDP counterparts who were in the interest of deporting these foreigners.
According to an official handout issued by the party, Prof Virender Gupta expressed his serious concern on the report that in spite of repeated reminders from the Ministry of Home Affairs on its directions about the formulation of strategy to deal with the issue of illegal settlement of Bangladeshis and Rohingyas in Jammu and Samba districts, the Group of Minister (GoM) constituted by the state government failed to formulated any policy to deal and deport the illegal settled these foreigners from the state of Jammu & Kashmir. He said that it is unfortunate that the GoM has not shown seriousness on the issue and that even though it held number of meetings but all of them turned out be inconclusive and without any output.
