Vajpayee offered hefty amount to Mufti in presence of Bhim Singh to form PDP: Kamal
SRINAGAR: Senior National Conference leader Dr Shiekh Mustafa Kamal Saturday said that some vested interests were hell-bent to uproot the industrial sector of Kashmir and for this purpose hidden hands were active in every field.
Kamal said that industrial sector, that was established by late Shiekh Muhammad Abdullah, was on the verge of extinction. Most of the industries have become sick while the Industrial units occupied by security forces present a grim picture, he said adding that under a well-planned conspiracy the industries of Kashmir were being targeted.
Vested Interests dont want to see Kashmir self-sufficient in any sector and they are active in paralyzing every sector here on the one or the other pretext, he said adding that there was a need to expose these elements.
Castigating Peoples Democratic Party for targeting NC, Kamal said that it is a wrong notion that people dont participate in rallies addressed by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. Omar organized a rally for the first time in Tral where people in large numbers gathered around Chief Minister. The only motive of PDP is to dislodge NC from the Chair, he said.
Describing Geelani as a leader without any political agenda, Kamal said that like PDP, Geelanis only aim is to oust NC from power.
Kamal revealed that it was former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who offered hefty amount to Mufti Muhammad Sayeed in presence of Prof Bhim Singh to form Peoples Democratic Party. PDP was formed to make NC week but at the end of the day it is NC which rules the roost, he said.
