Srinagar: Deriding the regressive, moribund and oppressive policies and politics of National Conference led by Farooq Abdullah,Senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader and Minister,R&B Naem Akhter today castigated Farooq Abdullah for mocking the miseries of the people.
Terming Farooq Abdullah as the ‘pivot’ for Normalising violence and other extra legal means in the Institutions of democracy, Akhter said that he not only unleashed the shackles of oppression and misery on Kashmir but also vitiated the polity of this Subcontinent through his warmongering and advocacy of “Bullet Diplomacy”.
“Farooq Abdullah stands exposed before the people of Kashmir and this nation.Just to seek a two year term in Delhi he is pushing the youth of this state into violence against the country in the hope that it will help him get a berth in the parliament of the same country,” Akhter Said.
Spotlighting the issues that have engulfed our state of late,Akhter said that instead of his partisan politics Farooq Sahab should have played a constructive role, but even at this stage of his life he is playing politics that can only be termed as disastrous and divisive .
“They have a history of double play.Historically on one hand they would ask commoners if the state to associate with Pakistan & seek plebiscite , on the other side they would buy business class tickets to Delhi for the sake of power,” Mr Akhter said.
Ridiculing the constant betrayal of trust of Kashmiris by National Conference,Akhter said that they have been in the driver’s seat of state politics for 90 years and together with Congress in power for almost 60 years, but can hardly list a thing that can be listed as an achievement on the political front.
NC’s tenure and times have been categorized as those of exploitation and subversion,Akhter said and added that,”NC had allied with all major political party in this country even when they did not need to, just for the sake of securing the interests of the family,”
Pointing out that the source of misfortunes and miseries that have haunted this state have been his creation,Akhter said that Ikhwan, Special Operations Group (SOG) and the policy of catch and kill all were the brainchild of Farooq Abdullah.
“When the then Union government announced Ramzan ceasefire , Farooq Abdullah’s DGP said it doesn’t apply to j&k police and that they would continue with their kinetic operations against militants,”
Lamenting over the fact that National Conference has and continues to treat the people of Kashmir as gullible canon fodder for their own vested interests,Akhter said that there are no takers for their baits now.
Farooq Abdullah had once famously said that all the jails are full now and that he has instructed his officials to act accordingly referring to his catch and kill policy,”
