Srinagar : Scores of people from Ajas Tehsil of Bandipora district of north Kashmir, Friday denied being part of Bharatiya Janata Party and alleged ‘character assassination’ after their pictures and a video of them being garlanded with BJP flags surfaced on social media.
In a five minute video residents of Ajas Tehsil of Bandipora denied being affiliated with the party and claimed that they were shocked to see their pictures and videos on social media some days back.
The aggrieved resident blamed local BJP leader and District President BJP Bandipora Sheikh Waseem Bari for ‘bringing them disrepute.
“He should stop uploading such videos which may degrade and erode credibility of people,” they said.
According to residents they were ‘duped by telling that their problems will be solved and administration will distribut Gas Cylinders under Govt Scheme.’
“But now I am seeing this dirt in form of our viral pictures and videos saying that we were joining BJP. We have not joined BJP nor we have any affiliation with any party,” they said.
They demand FIR against local BJP Leader for defaming people.
Earlier BJP Leader Sheikh Waseem Bari claimed that scores of workers belonging to different parties joined BJP, ‘inspired by Pro People policies of PM Narender Modi’.
