J&K Shri Ram Sena flays govt for giving 'provocative' name to Cable Car Project
Up in arms against `objectionable' name given to Cable Car Project in Jammu, Shri Ram Sena criticised state BJP-PDP coalition government for creating controversy to halt the project and creating law and order situation in the peaceful Jammu region.
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarter in Jammu, here today, State President Shri Ram Sena Jammu & Kashmir, Rajiv Mahajan castigated the state government for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Jammuites.

Rajiv Mahajan warned a mass agitation against the state government if the Cable Car project is not re-christened. He said this is a matter of great concern that a cable project, which is going to be established at Jammu and is supposed to be centre of attraction of Jammu Pradesh, has been given name after a street.

Since the project is going to connect pilgrimage place "Bawe Wali Mata" and tourist spot "Bagh-e Bhau", it should have more appropriate to be named after Bawe or Bahu, Mahajan said.

Mahajan alleged that the government move smacks of a conspiracy to suppress the history of Dogras, which shall not be tolerated by entire Dogra community.

"This move of Government is nothing but a provocative attempt by the BJP-PDP Government to hurt the religious sentiments of Jammuites and this is high time when we all Jammuites should oppose the move tooth and nail," he added.

Mahajan also asked the ruling BJP to clear its stand on the issue.

Rajiv Mahajan strongly condemned the attempts to create controversies by the government and its agencies by fiddling with the name of historic and heritage sites and places especially having religious sanctity and sentiments attached to them.

"In the recent past during the present dispensation of PDP- BJP, there was another controversy with regard to the nomenclature of historic and religious places of "Hari-Parbat" and Shri Shankryacharya in Kashmir, by a State Government department in the official advertisement. Now these reports of repeating the same things with the Bahu fort cable car project is a matter of great concern and a reflection on the working and role of BJP in the Government," he added.
