Valley-specific CBMs after interlocutor’s feedback: BJP

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national vice-president and J&K in charge, Avinash Rai Khanna, on Sunday said the Centre would announce Kashmir-specific confidence-building measures (CBMs) after taking feedback from its special representative to the state Dineshwar Sharma.“He (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) tried to accomplish what he stated. The arrival of Dineshwar Sharma and interacting with different stakeholders is a step towards this….once the feedback comes from him, we can decide about the CBMs,” Khanna told reporters here.He said this when asked if the Centre will announce Kashmir-specific CBMs to take forward Modi’s comments made on the last Independence Day where he called for ‘embracing all Kashmiris’. Khanna said the PDP-BJP coalition government was striving to maintain peace in the state. “If law and order is fine, then developmental activities will get a boost. We are working towards creating a peaceful atmosphere,” he added.Regarding the Kathua rape and murder case, he said the BJP was for justice to the victim while adding that the matter was sub judice. He distanced himself from the comments made by the two BJP ministers that resigned after the controversy, saying it was their personal view and not of the party. Meanwhile, Khanna earlier chaired a meeting of Valley-based district president and other local leaders along with state general secretary Narendra Singh. Meanwhile, BJP national general Secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday in Jammu cleared the party’s stand on Rohingya and the government directive on tribal settlement. He said: “The BJP’s stand on the two issues has been very clear and consistent. The minutes circulated to different districts must be withdrawn. This we have told the government already,” Ram Madhav said. On illegal settlement of Rohingya, he said: “The Rohingya issue comes under the Union Home Ministry. And, very soon you will see some efforts and step being taken.”
