Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party has called a Jammu bandh on Monday against alleged "failure" of the BJP in addressing issues facing the region.
It accused the BJP, the junior partner in the ruling PDP-BJP coalition, of "double standard" and appealed to all sections of society to join hands to fight against it.
JKNPP chairman and former minister Hash Dev Singh said the BJP was indulging in "double-standards and duplicity" over the issues of deportation of Rohingyas and Article 35 A leading to public resentment against the saffron party.
"Anguished over the consecutive surrenders of the BJP before its ally (PDP), the people have completely lost faith in the saffron party and the Jammu Bandh on 18 September will receive massive public response," he told a meeting of newly elected members of the working committee at the party headquarters.
