Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik Saturday challenged Chief Minister Mufti Sayeed and former CM Omar Abdullah to face him in a popularity test at any constituency of their choice.
Let Mufti Sayeed and Omer Abdullah jointly face us in a private election that is only meant to determine what people of Kashmir want. if these people are so sure about Kashmiris choosing India they should have no objection, a JKLF statement reads.
He said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Conference (NC) and all others who are part and parcel of pro-India politics in Jammu Kashmir were day in and out glorifying their connection with India and claim that people have chosen India over freedom.
Today, we challenge all these people to have guts and contest us in any constituency of their own choosing to determine what people of Kashmir actually want, said Malik.
These people come to power by hoodwinking people and putting slogans like autonomy, self rule, resolution of Jammu Kashmir, human rights and so on before the people during elections but as soon as elections are over all these politicians play the role of stooges and agents of Indian state, said Malik.
