DORU, ANANTNAG: Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad today hit out at the BJP saying that the party could not find space in Kashmir politics as it was like an “alien” to the state.

" They think Kashmir is their own home and planned to form the government. But they forgot that they were never acceptable here,” he said addressing an election meeting along with other leaders, including Saifuddin Soz.

“This Gujarat man is not acceptable here, “Azad said. He attacked the BJP for promoting communalism across the country.

“ Their main goal is promotion of Hinduvta and nothing else. Their mission 44 plus and the slogan for development, is just a hoax,” he said.

Lambasting the Peoples Democratic Party, Azad said that they “ are hand in glove with the BJP” and were fooling the people by pretending otherwise.

" Congress is the only party than can stop the BJP in Kashmir and we are going to do that" Azad said.

Azad and Soz were campaigning in this south Kashmir Doru constituency to for senior congress leader G A MIR who is facing a stiff contest from PDP's Syed Farooq Andrabi and NC's Advocate Farooq A Ganaie.
