Srinagar: AAM AADMI PARTY Lok Sabha candidate for Srinagar parliamentary seat Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat has strongly condemned the irresponsible statement made by Dr Farooq Abdullah wherein he called kashmiris as worst thieves as according to Farooq Kashmiris resort to power theft .
The statement said that the party spokesman said that by calling Kashmiris thieves Farooq Abdullah has once again disgraced AAM AADMI of Kashmir. People of this state are very much law abiding people but the wrong policies of the National Conference lead Government has time and again added to woes of Kashmiri people. It is National Conference which sold out the natural resources of the state like water to NHPC and in return got peanuts . Had the NHPC projects been returned to the state the power situation would not have been what we are witnessing today .
We have information obtained under Right to Information Act (RTI) wherein scores of Government departments have not paid electricity bills worth crores of rupees from the last many years and in view of all this Farooq and Omar must clarify whether Government itself is a thief or an ordinary bruised Kashmiri ?
Farooq Abdullah being President of J&K Cricket Association is involved in a scam involving crores of rupees. Farooq Abdullah has occupied large chunk of Nazool land at Gupkar and he is paying peanuts as annul rent . Only landless and poor people were supposed to get
such Government land under 5 point programme and that has been stopped . How can Government take meagre few hundred rupees from Farooq Abdullah as annual rent when we have two or three families living in one or two congested rooms in old city of Srinagar such as Nowhatta , Gojwara , Habba Kadal etc. We demand that Farooq Adullah and his family must be charged rent for his Gupkar residence as per the present market value of the land .
