Mehbooba Frustrated at Losing Grip of Her Party: Tanvir

“Come clear on the conduct of your senior most leader who back stabbed Maqbool Bhat and asked for Afzal’s hanging in national interest”

SRINAGAR:  The Political Secretary to the Chief Minister, Tanvir Sadiq today hit back at Mehbooba Mufti saying that her latest accusation against the chief minister Omar Abdullah is one classic example of her frustration. “Mehbooba by making these ridiculous accusations betrays the paucity of her intellect and hostility that she has towards Chief Minister Omar Abdullah”

“After the boycott in the Assembly and their open fight in the public between their leadership, it is clear that they are not only clueless but also foresee their humiliating defeat in 2014” he said

Reminding her of NC’s contribution Tanvir said “She should get her facts right, it is Omar Abdullah’s NC which passed the Autonomy resolution in the assembly, the only party which raised the issue both in the parliament and in the assembly and remains the only party that seeks a peaceful solution to the issue and has a valid constitutional document in its support unlike PDP whose Self Rule balloon has burst without a whimper and their duplicity has been exposed” he said 

“They have literally given up on the resolution and their one point agenda is only to somehow grab power” Hitting back at PDP on Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat , Tanvir asked Mehbooba  

To come clear on the position of her senior most leaders who back stabbed Maqbool Bhat and asked for Afzal’s hanging in national interest” 

“One of their senior most Kashmiri leaders who at that time said if it is national interest then hang Afzal Guru” can they explain this?” said Tanvir compared to that “It was Omar Abdullah who made no secret of his opposition to the hanging and had always warned about the implication of executing him & asked for the death sentence to be commuted to life in jail” he said “that fact can’t be changed or ignored,” said Tanvir.  

“They talk about Maqbool Bhat and are shredding crocodile tears, why doesn’t she clear the position of the same leader who was sent to defend Maqbool Bhat in the court “adding “Our senior leader on the floor of the house exposed the duplicity of PDP when he said that money was collected to send, who is now PDP’s senior most leader to Delhi to defend his case, and another PDP leader is privy to these deliberation and witness to this event” 

“These people who talk about Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat are the real culprits, when they had to defend either of the two they either choose to remain silent or did not attend or defend them in the court”

PDP are now trying to shed crocodile tears to hoodwink the people by playing dirty politics in this situation, until they accept their own complicity all this other talk of theirs is just guilt induced nonsense,” he added. 

Talking about Power situation he said their lies have no barriers, they talk about power let them come out with even one project that they had commissioned or had ever started during their dark period ”asked Tanvir adding that “ they have to answer what they did with all the money and resources that was sanctioned by the GOI for the development of the state” adding  “PDP in their regime didn’t even sanction one power project and they are talking about resources, they have looted the state exchequer” 

“Speechifying about 3 years is so overused and worn out that even the PDP leaders are fed up” He said “it’s an irony that she now has no issue left and has been literally begging for issues”.

Taking about corruption he said “They shamelessly talk about corruption but forget that their own ministers were involved in corruption including one who was thrown out of the cabinet” said Tanvir “It’s amusing to see them talking about MGNREGA and corruption while as their own Member in the upper house was involved in a major fraud as director rural development” adding “They rewarded him by making him a lawmaker” 

“They opposed the revival of State Accountability Commission (SAC) and opposed the Chairman because cases against a number of their leaders are pending and they were aware that if the commission is revived, they would have to face serious corruption charge” he added “It was the fear of being exposed that was preventing the opposition from ensuring revival of SAC” adding “If the assets of their leaders are investigated and made pubic they will flood the prison and become leaderless” 

Terming PDP as a party of opportunists, Tanvir said that facing failures from all quarters they have now started calling Press Conferences to express their frustrations.
