As Drabu kicked out, BJP leaders rush to Delhi to discuss state developments

Last Updated on : 14 Mar,2018 | Source : I - net


The BJP high command has called state party chief Sat Sharma and general secretary Ashok Koul to Delhi to discuss the developments in the state following Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s decision to sack Haseeb Drabu from the Council of Ministers. Both Sharma and Koul left for Delhi this afternoon to meet senior leaders.

Sources said the duo would meet BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav, who along with Drabu, had set the agenda for the PDP-BJP coalition government in J&K. “Ram Madhav reached Delhi on Monday evening. Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh is already there so the party top leadership would discuss the situation emerging after the sacking of Drabu from the ministry,” a source said, adding, “the Drabu episode has landed the BJP in an embarrassing situation because the PDP has sacked him on a very sensitive issue.”

The sources further said the issue would dominate the meeting with central leaders but other matters, such as controversial decisions taken during a review meeting of the Tribal Affairs Ministry and Kathua incident, are also likely to be discussed. The BJP leadership has a reason to worry as Drabu was removed on remarks which have acceptability in Jammu province and other parts of the country.

On the other hand, the BJP came out openly in Drabu’s support for highlighting the “hard reality” of the Kashmir problem. BJP general secretary Narendra Singh supported Drabu’s statement that Kashmir was not only a political issue but social also. “Every problem has a social cause. Society too has a role to give right directions to the younger generation,” he said, adding that Drabu had highlighted "social angle" of the Kashmir problem.
