All party meeting a guilt induced hogwash: NC


SRINAGAR: National Conference on Thursday slammed the PDP-BJP government for being ‘non serious’ on the situation in Kashmir calling the ‘All Party’ meeting a “guilt induced hogwash’ of the state government to absolve itself of its failures”

National Conference while calling the boycott of ‘all party’ meeting the ‘right thing’, said that the non seriousness and arrogance of this government can be seen from the fact that neither did the CM have any concrete plan to offer in the ‘all party’ nor felt the need to visit the hospitals where young boys are battling for their life.

“We had already said that this meet was a futile exercise since the credibility of this governments leadership is in question” the NC  said in a statement, adding “What was the efficacy of this meeting which couldn’t even recommend lifting curfew, restarting mobile phones, visiting hospitals,  or even ordering stopping usage of pellet guns” he said

Calling the government dictatorial and insensitive the NC said that the valley is under curfew from past 14 days with people craving for essential commodities but the government is busy in its photo ops.

“Some concrete steps like restraint and immediate assistance to hospitals need to be taken instead of referring or passing everything to Delhi” the NC said.

Reacting to the Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement that he would establish direct communication with the people of Kashmir, especially the youth, the NC said that that in the absence of a concrete plan the statement lacks conviction, nothing was said by the HM that would seethe the anger on the ground and unless and until Kashmir issue is not seen as a political issue and addressed politically, the recourse to managing the issue militarily or any other way will be nothing but waste of time”
