Srinagar: – Hurriyat (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that India with its military might occupied state and grabbed all its resources. While reacting to the refusal of power projects by authorities in Delhi, Syed Ali Geelani said Jammu & Kashmir has enough natural resources; however they are being exploited by Delhi. He said that local henchmen, including Farooq Abdullah & Mufti Syed are responsible for this and felicitated this loot and plunder.
Pro-freedom Leader said that forced occupation is the root cause of all evils including, political uncertainty, economic and social turbulences.
Commenting over the prevailing gloomy state of affairs, Geelani said that as long as forced occupation persists there, the worst situation will continue to prevail.
Hurriyat Chairman said in a statement issued to PTK that from day first, authorities in Delhi were hell-bent to cripple & crush our economy, create sense of insecurity & they are very desperate to see us holding begging bowel. Our economy has always remained easy target & it is their well thought ploy to make every soul dependent, asserted Geelani.
Referring to pro-Indian politicians of state and their treachery, Syed Ali Geelani said they always served the interests of Delhi and extended their support for exploitation of situation and never resented such shrived moves played by authorities in Delhi. They for the lust of power bartered all state interests to their masters in Delhi, said Geelani.
All these power projects are managed by NHPC, said Geelani and state stooges are sole responsible for instrument of agreements and played their pivotal role for the transfer of these projects to NHPC. While referring to Rangarajan committee, Geelani said the committee in its recommendations though paved way for the return of Dul Haste & Uri projects & clause nine of said agreement clarifies that these projects can be returned to state authorities when demanded, however the response from PMO office is scary and dishonest, thus clarified their intentions about their policy to crush and cripple economy of state.
Delhi has not changed its policy towards people of state, said Geelani and ridiculing the pro-Indian politician, said that it was a time to act & it should have served a decisive opportunity for them. They are interested with power and perks, said Geelani and their rhetoric about return of power projects is just an eye wash and political gimmick.
They are befouling people, it is just their vote bank politics and political stunt, said Geelani. Hurriyat chairman said all these politicians stand exposed, people are aware about their deceit and they can no more deceive our young generation.
