Srinagar: A female Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) worker from north Kashmir’s Handwara has resigned from the party membership.
A social activist from Handwara, Mubeena Bano, who had joined BJP a few months ago Thursday resigned from the party,
“I have been working to address the issues of people since 2015. I had joined BJP to resolve the issues of people. But nothing is being done on the ground so I resigned from the party,” she was quoted as saying by local news gathering agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).
She is the third leader of the BJP from North Kashmir who has resigned from the party in the last six days.
Earlier, two youth leaders of the Bhartiya Janta Party from north Kashmir resigned.
On Saturday, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president from Baramulla, Marouf Bhat tendered his resignation from the party.
“I hereby resign from the BJYM as a member and any post I held as part of it. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work for the party,” Mr. Bhat had said.
While on Tuesday, BJP’s Vice President for Kupwara Asif Ahmad also resigned from the party.
“I am from a well off family. I did not join BJP to make money but to work for my people. But we are not allowed to work by officials. BJP has no value on the ground. Officials are not bothered to listen to us and address issues of people,” he told KINS. (KINS)
