JAMMU: Congress today took upon the BJP for the presence of LET commander Talib Hussain Shah in the BJP rank and questioned BJP for its militant connections right from Jammu and Kashmir to Udheypur in Rajasthan, besides asking how such a dreaded terrorist gained entry along with BJP leaders to meet Home Minister Shri Amit Shah.
Addressing a Press Conference followed by protest demonstration at its Shaheedi Chowk HQ, JKPCC Working President Shri Raman Bhalla, Chief Spokesperson Shri Ravinder Sharma, Generally Secretary PCC Shri Yogesh Sawhney, PYC President Shri Uday Bhanu Chib raised serious questions over the presence of LET Commander Talib Hussain Shah in the ranks of ruling party BJP and it as serious security threat to the security of the State and people especially opponents. Displaying the number of photographs of dreaded terrorist with top leadership of BJP including BJP UT President Ravinder Raina, Lok Sabha MP Jugal Kishore Sharma including the Home Minister of the Country, Shri Raman Bhalla not only took to task BJP for giving entry and giving prominent position to such terrorists by virtue of which he enjoyed privilege and facilitation to attending important meeting of the ruling party including with the Home Minister and described it a serious security breach and failure of intelligence agencies, which needs high level probe and action.
He said that BJP cannot absolve itself of the responsibility of checking security threat by denying his position in the party, which is an attempt to cover up its utter negligence in the matter of security and associating such dreaded terrorists with the party and giving importance and access to Gov. system.
His presence on several important occasions and events of the ruling party clearly demonstrate that how important he was in ruling party by virtue of which he gained access to top functionaries of the ruling party and Govt. including Home Minister. Right from Jammu and Kashmir to Udheypur presence of such elements in BJP is a matter of great concern and termed it a biggest breach of security of the state. How Talib Hussain gained entry into meeting of Home Minister Amit Shah, questioned Congress to BJP.
They lauded the bravery of villagers of Tukson dhok in Reasi Dist. for capturing Talib Hussain shah and his accompanince and demanded that the issue of security breach of the Home Minister and failure of intelligence system should also be probed, apart from interrogation of Top BJP leadership for allowing entry and promoting him into the party rank without counter checking of his antecedents. The BJP is making a vain attempt to hide its failures to check such elements in to the party which is more serious and shameful for BJP.
Later a strong protest demonstration was held at Shahidi Chowk of seeking explanation of ruling party and Govt. for lapse and failures. They also demanded action on the BJP leaders to promote such a dreaded terrorists for access to all top functions not only BJP but the Govt. also. They also took into task the Govt. especially the intelligence system for their failures including allowing him to work and posing terrorist as a journalist without check and facilitate him to indulge in antinational activities. Action should be taken against all those involved. The protestors raised slogans carrying several photos of Talib with Top BJP leaders.
