The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Jammu and Kashmir unit had also “strongly condemned this barbaric terror attack” on Thursday and mentioned that “those who are responsible for this will not be spared”.

“We have lost three of our very dedicated leaders– Fida Hussain Yatoo, Umer Rashid Beigh and Umer Ramzan Hajam in a dastardly terror attack. I feel the provocations by the leaders of NC and PDP, who are trying to reactivate themselves, are behind such incidents. However, we are not going to tolerate this and the killers will be paid back in the same coin,” Gupta mentioned.
Gupta mentioned that the killing of three very devoted leaders was an enormous loss to BJP and the nation. “There is an attempt to scuttle the voice of those who hold aloft the tricolour in the Kashmir Valley but it won’t deter us and the wave of nationalism won’t stop. The matter is being investigated,” he mentioned.
JK BJP chief Ravinder Raina also echoed Gupta’s allegations. “Gupkar gang’s provocations are responsible for such incidents. They are conspiring against the nation and they repeatedly mention Pakistan and China in their statements. They are inciting the people in Kashmir. They should not play with fire because doing so strengthens anti-national forces and creates confusion among the people. They are to vitiate the atmosphere,” Raina mentioned.
Raina also mentioned that terrorists and their sympathisers had been perturbed by grand Accession Day celebrations in Kashmir for the primary time on October 26. “These leaders had taken part in the celebrations. The perpetrators will pay heavily for their sins,” he added.
