CHRAR-E-SHARIEF: Senior National Conference member, Abdul Rahim Rather, on Monday said that vote to PDP in upcoming by-polls will amount to endorsing 2016 blinding, maiming and killing of innocent boys and girls in the Valley, as also approval to extension of fascist ideology in Jammu and Kashmir, an NC statement said.
These elections are going to be watershed moment in the turbulent history of Kashmir, as the people will get an opportunity to either discard or embrace those, who have betrayed Kashmiris from time to time in different guises, Rather said while speaking at various election meetings in Chrar-e-Sharief Assembly segment.
Rather recounted numerous instances of betrayal perpetrated by the PDP leadership in different avtaar and said, it came to power in 2015 with those it vehemently opposed during 2014 electioneering. Those betraying the mandate cant be trusted again. The PDP will have to explain to people why it became instrumental in bringing BJP and RSS into Kashmir.
The former minister blamed the PDP-BJP coalition for pushing Jammu and Kashmir into developmental inertia with utility services in disarray as a result of which the people are suffering on account of power and drinking water. He said the mis-governance has taken toll of every sector and the people are suffering on account of basic minimum needs.
