JAMMU: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS’) top brass’ sojourn in Jammu and its back to back meetings with all its sister organizations including its political wing of Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) to get the ground feedback of Jammu and Kashmir UT is backed with a focused aim beyond its routine schedule.
Though ‘Booth Jan Samvad Abhiyan’ remained the pivotal subject of discussion attended by senior RSS leaders including national general secretary (Org), B L Santosh, party national general secretary in charge J&K and Ladakh UTs, Tarun Chugh, co incharge J&K Ashish Sood, party national secretary, Narinder Singh, upcoming LS elections and BJP’s role pan J&K and Ladakh took the center-stage of closed door discourse.
While The News Now in its November 11 edition had carried comprehensive details under its caption ‘BJP political corridors abuzz for LS polls 2024’ , as to what course of action has been initiated at Centre towards ticket sharing for LS polls in J&K , the ongoing Sangh meetings were shared certain issues where ‘community biased’ roles of BJP were highlighted .
The source privy to today’ s meeting disclosed that a particular community highlighted its plight with the Sang Brass with a request to take the cognizance .
“ The BJP over the years in its political empowerment in the erstwhile state since having come into power has been pushing forward only two community people for power sharing in the political corridors while another important community has been neglected,” the source said .
He said that the third community segment representing people from the high-profile corporate and business sector put up a strong validation of their significance in the party saying that they held the financial forte for the party for all causes , be it elections or other organizational works , but for the political representation in the power , they were ignored.
A quick reminder to November 11 story of The News Now aptly corroborates the claim about two important signatories to J&K road-map to politics, viz Tarun Chugh and Ashish Sood having submitted their high-profile report to party High Command at Centre naming BJP president Ravinder Raina as the front runner for Jammu -Reasi constituency as well enjoying meaty stakes on Anantnag-Rajouri Parliamentary Seat also. Sunil Sethi, Surjit Singh Slathia are also potential candidates.
Shakti Pàrihar and Sunil Sharma’s name are also making rounds for Udhampur-Kathua-Doda as per the report of signatories.
As per BJP’s power arrangement in coalition in erstwhile JK political milieu before 21 November 2018 , those who tasted power in various capacities included Jitendra Singh, Nirmal Singh , Shamsher Singh , Lal Singh, Shakti Parihar, Dilip Parihar, Rajeev Jasrotia, R S Pathania , Sat Sharma , Jugal Kishore Sharma ,Sunil Sharma , Ashok Khajuria , Rajeev Sharma and others .
However ,Kavinder Gupta stood as an exception among them.
Meanwhile , today’s RSS meet also signaled conduct of three-day Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh Festival to be held from Dec 10 at Gulshan Ground, Jammu .
The three days festival would showcase the diverse cultural and heritage significance of all the three regions and is likely to draw the fascination of the crowd from all walks of life .
It is in place to mention that broad-basing its service towards mankind , the RSS is coming up with a comprehensive cluster village arrangement at Khoon, Majalta in Mansar block .
Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) has donated a large chunk of its land for the purpose while it will also be a conducting authority .
“ SMVDSB has donated the land where the cluster village is coming up . Though it would be a conducting authority over there , all expenditure to raise structures and allied properties would be borne by RSS. No expenditure would be incurred by SMVDB,” said an RSS member .
