Jammu, May 2
The Congress’ J&K unit and the National Panthers Party (NPP) hailed the voters of West Bengal on Sunday for “rejecting the politics of hate”. Reacting to the outcome of election results, J&K Congress president GA Mir said the strategy of West Bengal voters and their commitment to keep the “communal and divisive” forces at bay against all sorts of onslaughts would be a lesson for voters elsewhere in different parts of the country.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah put the lives of 130 crore Indians at risk by ignoring a grave national health emergency, for the sake of winning the West Bengal state elections but the wise Bengalis rejected the politics of opportunism and communalism,” Mir said in a statement here.

No more deception
A self-flattered BJP must realise that people can no longer be swayed by deceptive slogans and false promises. —Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman, J&K National Panthers party
He said the BJP, especially the PM and the Home minister, had made West Bengal the battlefield to “wrest the state at all costs by using all energy, attention and tactics at their command” but the people of West Bengal rejected their “lust for power and politics of polarization, division and communalism”.
In a separate statement, NPP chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh also complimented the electorates of West Bengal, Kerala and Tamil Nadu for their refusal to “succumb to politics of money and muscle power” and “handing over a resounding defeat to BJP”. — PTI
