The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is a coalition partner in Mehbooba Mufti led government in Jammu and Kashmir, has accused the state government of rewarding "stone-pelters and terrorists". 

"It is shocking to know that anti-national and anti-social elements are preferred over the martyrs by the (state) government", BJP state spokesperson Virender Gupta said on Tuesday.

"It is indeed very unfortunate that the stone pelters and the terrorists are being rewarded," he alleged. 

"Soft and friendly approach towards those staging proxy war against the nation at the behest of enemy or those who indulge in anti-social or anti-national activities on their instigation is really hurting," he said. 

He said that it was distressing that no announcement has been made for the compensation to any of the families of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defending the sovereignty of the country. 

Gupta said that it was "shocking to know that anti-national and anti-social elements are preferred over the martyrs by the government." 

He claimed that the BJP has always been at the forefront in providing financial assistance recently it gave Rs 5 lakh each to the two families of soldiers killed in Uri attack.
