Serious about return of Afzal’s body: Nasir


SRINAGAR:  Asserting that the National Conference is serious about return of Muhammad Afzal Guru’s body to his family, National Conference Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani said the party had moved an adjournment motion in the state assembly seeking discussion on the issue.

“NC is serious about getting the body of Afzal back for which we brought an adjournment motion in the Assembly today on which five NC MLA’s have signed. We have submitted it to the Speaker and he has asked us for time till tomorrow. I hope we will be given enough chance to discuss this issue”, Wani told KNS.

Castigating PDP for what he called hypocritical politics, the former Mos Home said, “ Our motive is very clear and we are serious about it. Unlike PDP we don’t want to indulge in making the galleries happy. Our chief Minister Omar Abdullah has already written a letter to Prime minster on 19 February wherein he has strongly pleaded for the return of Afzals remains”.

Calling PDP a power hungry party, Nasir said the party’s track record shows how PDP waits for an opportunity to come to power. “They speak neither against the congress nor the government of India but only against national conference whenever they find an opportunity”, said Nasir.

In response to a question regarding the killing of a NC Surpanch in Kalentra village of Baramullah District Nasir Said, “To be frank he was killed and killed by a gun and many of our cadres in past were killed by militants. There is a possibility that he too might have been shot by militants. But nothing can be said with surety till investigations are completed”. (KNS)
