"The country is agitated over the conduct of the government. On one hand it bows before the separatist forces to cancel land allotted to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board, on the other hand, it is soft on terrorists. This is a step ahead of being opportunist...," BJP youth wing chief Amit Thaker told reporter.

Announcing the youth rally at Ramlila Grounds in New Delhi, Thaker said, "The people of the country are agitated over the working of the government. It is working for the welfare of separatists and firing at the nationalists on the streets of Jammu."
