Udhampur: Senior BJP leader Lala Shiv Charan Gupta today held responsible the PDP and the National Conference for the ongoing militancy in the state. In a statement here today, he accused these parties for the increase in militancy and said that it was a proved fact that the militants were having close relations with certain politicians. 'It is also not a secret that militants take shelter in the houses of certain leaders and the administrative people,' alleged the BJP leader. Gupta said this have become evident from the recent incident of arrest of a relative of the chief minister. 'Not only this in the much publicised fake surrender issue, the name of a close relative of state Congress leader had come in the reports. These incidents have exposed the leaders of the ruling coalition in the state,' said Gupta.
