Youth Being Forced To Adopt Violent Means: PDP


SRINAGAR:  Accusing Chief Minister Omar Abdullah of forcing youth to adopt the violent path, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said, that Omar’s statement on PSA in assembly was just a gimmick and an attempt to mislead and befool public.

“Tel me what Omar has done for Kashmir resolution during last four years. If he says on the floor of house that Kashmir is not integral part, why he shoots down the youth who say the same thing on streets,” asked Mehbooba.

She ridiculed Chief Minster on the statement and said, “Omar knows that his father in Delhi would come to his rescue by saying, we are the integral part of India and are ready to spill every drop of blood of our family for India.”  Mufti alleged  that Chief Minster and his father were fooling people in Kashmir as well as in India.

“We have stood against Home Minster on   Afzal Guru Issue. Omar Abdullah could have taken a stand to save the pride of the legislature, but he did not. It was his duty to save the pride of the assembly, but unfortunately, this too was done by the opposition” claimed Mehbooba. She claimed that the National Conference compromised with the sanctity of the house and turned it into an “ akhada” .

“When we were in the Govt. Mufti sahib ensured that there was no innocent killed or even feel frightened while walking on the street,” she said, adding no Hurriyat leader or the young people were tortured or caged en mass.  

Mehbooba said that Home Ministers refusal to return the mortal remains of Afzal Guru when PDP had moved an adjournment motion, was a slap on the institution of assembly. “He should have resented Home Minster and said, let our house be not taken far granted,” Mehbooba said.

“You are making remarks against every one, against Huriyat, against army, against police, against PDP and others. What kind of Chief Minster you are?” asked  Mehbooba. She said PSA was equally a fatal law as was AFSPA.
