SRINAGAR: Asking G N Ratanpuri to resign from the Parliament, National Conference Additional General Secretary, Mustafa Kamal Thursday described Ratanpuri as the biggest foe of the party whose only aim was to gain the sympathy of Hurriyat and PDP.
Kamal was reacting to the letter that Ratanpuri circulated in media on Thursday in which he has said that he cannot rule out the possibility of SAS Geelani turning out to be the tallest Kashmiri leader of the 21st century.
Kamal lambasted Ratanpuri for his letter terming him an agent of Syed Ali Shah Geelani. One more foe of NC has taken birth, now we have to fight with him. He has been taught by our adversaries how to defame late Shiekh Mohammad Abdullah and National Conference and he will pay for it because NC cant tolerate person like him anymore, Kamal said advising Ratanpuri to join the ranks of Hurriyat Conference.
Dr Kamal said that if he (Ratanpuri) doesnt have faith in the principles of NC that he should resign from the Parliament. What he is doing in Parliament on the ticket of NC. Tell him to resign immediately. He is not our member but a foe who is hell bent to weaken the party, Kamal said and added that people of South Kashmir had told me beforehand that Ratanpuri was not trustworthy.
He should not support Geelani and tarnish the image of Shiekh Mohammad Abdullah who fought for the people of Kashmir. Ratanpuri has lost his state of mind and he is talking anything, he said and added that nobody can deny this fact that hundreds of thousands of people participated in Shiekhs funeral procession which amply shows that he was the tallest leader.
