Srinagar, Nov 07: Jamaat-e-Islami Wednesday accused senior National Conference leader, Dr Mustafa Kamaal, of perhaps having lost his mental balance following the realization that the ruling partys future was dark.
He described Dr Kamaals statement holding the Jamaat-e-Islami and the Peoples Democratic Party responsible for fatal attacks on panchayat members, as figment of his imagination.
In a statement, the Jamaat spokesman, Advocate Zahid Ali, said the allegations leveled against Jamaat-e-Islami by Dr Kamaal were absolutely baseless and preposterous.
Dr Mustafa Kamal is suffering from some frustration as otherwise he would not have stooped so low as to indulge in mud-slinging against an organization whose unblemished record is known to everyone in the state, the spokesman said, vehemently denying the NC leaders charges.
Describing Dr Kamaals allegations as a figment, the spokesman denied involvement of any Jamaat worker in the killing of any panch or sarpanch.
In his statement yesterday, Dr Kamaal had claimed militants would not use fire power on rural representatives as their (militants;) writ runs solely on fear. Referring to UJC chief, Syed Salahuddins statement on panchayat members, the NC leader had refused to accept that militants, particularly the Hizbul Mujahideen, would target the rural representatives.
