Ajay Sadhotra, additional general secretary of the National Conference, has launched a scathing critique against the BJP government, warning of severe threats to the foundations of Indian democracy and alleging that all institutions are under attack. Sadhotra condemned the BJP’s alignment with authoritarian tendencies, describing it as deeply troubling for the nation’s citizens. These remarks were made during a day-long convention in Govindpur, Satwari area of Jammu city.

Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial president, echoed concerns over the administration’s failure to address the basic needs and aspirations of the populace, citing growing disillusionment among the population. He highlighted the palpable desire among the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir for a fresh political alternative, with the INDI Alliance emerging as a promising option.

Abdul Ghani Malik, Zonal president Reasi Udhampur and former Minister emphasized the importance of strengthening secularism and restoring pluralistic values in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). He criticized the BJP for exploiting communal divisions for political gain and called for support for the INDIA bloc alliance to foster communal harmony.

The National Conference’s condemnation of the BJP government mirrors broader concerns among political parties and civil society groups in India regarding the erosion of democratic principles and institutions under the current regime. The INDI Alliance, which includes the National Conference, is poised to emerge as a potential challenger to the BJP in the forthcoming assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
