BJP has raised a lot of hue and cry criticizing the move to release political prisoners in the state, who do not have a criminal case against them. BJP`s Jammu chief Kavinder Gupta condemned the move and said that the BJP MLAs would take up the issue with the Chief Minister, as they were not consulted about the decision.

At a meeting between RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and BJP chief Amit Shah, the former cautioned the BJP man to tread carefully and not make any more compromises in the collation.
