Addressing the press conference, Sasan strongly criticised the BJP, a self proclaimed proprietor of patriotism for adopting these tactics which are detrimental and retrogative for state and nation. He said that on the one hand Omar Abdullah Chief Minister J&K state is working hard to mitigate the problems of common masses and doing its best to bring peace and prosperity to the state, on the other hand BJP by its ill advised action is scuttling the process by playing vote bank politics.
He questioned the BJP leadership as to why they forget these tactics when they happen to be in the power at centre. He urged BJP to refrain from negative politics in National interest and let the hard earned peace prevail in the state. He reminded BJP leadership that on account of Republic Day the security forces are already under stress for maintaining law & order situation and the BJP by taking such steps is aggravating the situation and creating problems for law-enforcing agencies.
He further said that the BJP out of frustration is playing unethical politics and reminded them that people better understand their credentials and hoped that the people will give be fitting reply to them and foil their doubtful designs. He urged the BJP leadership that if they are so patriot and are concerned about Nationalism they should actively participate in district level Republic Day functions where National flag will be unfurled.
Highlighting socio-economical and political problems being faced by the community Mr. Sasan demanded formation of Refugee welfare and Development Board which shall fundtion as a liason between Govt. and Refugees and will highlight problems being faced by refugees and will try to solve those. He appealed to Omar Abdullah to consider this demand on humanitarian grounds.
