J&K is nerve centre for BJP workers, says Jitendra Singh
Describing Jammu and Kashmir as a sensitive "nerve centre" for BJP workers across the country, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said there is no compromise on Jana Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerjee's ideology of 'one flag, one Constitution'.
Addressing a 'Jammu Kashmir Sammelan' here, the senior BJP leader from the state said the message should go loud and clear that there is no compromise on Mookerjee's ideology.
Mookerjee favoured "<g data-gr-id="13">ek</g> <g data-gr-id="14">nishan</g>, <g data-gr-id="15">ek</g> <g data-gr-id="16">vidhan</g>, <g data-gr-id="17">ek</g> pradhan" (one flag, one Constitution) in Jammu and Kashmir as against the existing system of the state having separate flag and Constitution.
Singh, Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office, said J-K is a sensitive "nerve centre" for BJP workers. He recalled an anecdote when Jawaharlal Nehru had lost temper at Mookerjee's ideological beliefs and shouted at him saying ?Mookerjee, I will crush this mentality". Mookerjee had retorted back saying "I shall crush this crushing mentality", the BJP leader said, adding "This determination and this commitment is precisely what defines our dedication to all that what Mookerjee stood for."
