BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain on Thursday held a rally in the Bijbehara area of Anantnag where terrorists lobbed a grenade on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel amid the ongoing District District Council (DDC) polls in the Union Territory.
At Dara Shikoh park in Bijbehara, the party’s national spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain unfurled the tricolour and said, “Mehbooba Mufti used to say that there will be no one left to unfurl the flag, this is our response to her.”
A CRPF personnel was injured in a grenade attack roughly a kilometre from the venue before BJP leaders arrived for the rally.
Addressing about 300 residents from the district, Hussain said, “If they thought that they could scare us and cancel this event, they are wrong and we have proven it by being here despite the attack.”
Stating that leaders of the “Gupkar gang” failed to work for people of the Union Territory, he said, “They are not your own. Narendra Modi is your own because he knows what poverty is. The son of a poor man who has lived his life like you have.”
