SRINAGAR: Ridiculing the recent statement of Sheikh Nazir Ahmad, General Secretary National Conference that Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah had no role in acceding Kashmir to India, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Sunday accused National Conference of assigning job to Sheikh Nazir and Mustafa Kamal of issuing bizarre statements.
PDP spokesman Naeem Akhtar accused NC of indulging in the blame game. Sometimes they accuse Hari Singh for accession of 1947, sometimes Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad for the situation of 1953 and sometimes they allege that it was Mirza Afzal Biegh who facilitated the accord of 1975.
Akhtar further stated that the people of Kashmir are mature and wise enough to understand what has been done to them and by whom. NC has given the job of issuing hard hitting statements to Kamal and Nazir while Farooq Abdullah and the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah speak in the soft tones.
Asking NC to provide reasons for all the actions of Sheikh Abdullah during 1952, 1975 , Akhtar alleged that it was Sheikh who compelled Mirwaiz Yusuf and Choudary Ghulam Abaas to leave the state at that time. Why NC is now using the apologetic tone about Kashmirs accession to India, said Akhtar adding that it was Sheikh Abdullah who said to Nehru at Srinagars Lal Chowk Man Tu Shudam Tu Man Shudi.
Akhtar further accused NC of deceiving the people by issuing historically incorrect statements. They can have alliance with BJP,NDA or with UPA but back home , they assign the job to someone issue furred statements against their coalition partners. (KNS)
