He said that VDC is a notorious force that has been created by India. It is using guns and support of India in terrorizing the common people in Jammu region. This force has been seen active in spreading communal politics and killing people. Today our protest is to impress upon the rulers to disband and disarm this anti people force immediately. Bhat sahib said that if rulers fail to curb and stop the election divisive politics, VDC terrorism and communal forces, the situation will worsens and every responsibility of that will lie on the shoulders of the rulers. While condemning the arrest of JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik ,Bhat sahib said that the rulers are not allowing us to even demonstrate politically and show solidarity with our brethren in Jammu region..

He said that we cannot let those elements who for their petty benefits and electoral politics want to divide us in the name of sect, religion or region to succeed in their ill designs. While taking a dig on VDC, Bhat said that this force is like Ikhwanis of Kashmir .They are army men without uniform and any bad deed by them is direct offence committed by Indian army and forces. He said that time has come when this brutal force used to suppress people of Jammu region especially Muslims should be disbanded and disarmed.
