Srinagar: National Conference on Friday expressed disappointment over the Government of Indias decision of not holding any talks with separatists in Kashmir and said this was another clear and humiliating snub to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who it said shamelessly continues to sell her apologetic meetings with the Prime Minister as alleged achievements.
A party spokesperson said it was now unambiguously clear that Mehbooba Mufti had become an insult-proof politician solely interested in remaining in her chair regardless of how she is mistreated and ridiculed by her own allies.
The Advocate General of India has made the Government of Indias stand very clear they will not talk to the separatists, neither now nor at any time in the future. This is another blatant rebuke to the much hyped Agenda of the Alliance between PDP and BJP that promised an engagement between the Central Government and all stakeholders in Kashmir, irrespective of their ideological positions. Both Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and now Mehbooba Mufti have sold their opportunistic, inconceivable alliance with the BJP as a compromise made for the welfare of the State and its people primarily the promise of a political process between New Delhi and Hurriyat. Today, for the umpteenth time, that charade has been exposed officially by the Central Government, he added.
The NC spokesperson asked Mehbooba Mufti why she wasnt resigning now as per her recent threat to the Central Government to start talks with the Hurriyat failing which she would resign. What is stopping Mehbooba Mufti from resigning now? Her Agenda of the Alliance has been proven a hoax not by anyone else but her own ally. She has failed as an administrator and has overseen a level of barbarism, killing and brutality that is unprecedented. Fearing a humiliating loss in the Anantnag by-election after being routed from Srinagar, her brother ran away from an election which was illegitimately and unethically aborted with help from the Central Government to save PDP from another imminent defeat. Even our female students are now out on the roads more alienated and anguished than ever before. Why isnt Mehbooba sticking to her threats and resigning so that the State could breathe a sigh of relief and further loss of lives could be prevented?, the NC spokesperson asked.
The NC spokesperson said the Agenda of the Alliance between PDP and BJP had now become a cruel joke that both opportunistic parties use to rub salt on the wounds of our youth. Some PDP leaders go to the shameless extent of declaring the Agenda of the Alliance as a universally accepted document which is ironically rejected by the very signatories to the document to start with. No amount of lying, shamelessness and treachery can save Mehbooba Mufti from the imminent wrath of the people who feel exploited, cheated and bartered to the RSS for Mehboobas own personal political ambitions. The only agenda of the PDP-BJP Alliance is to humiliate and kill our youth, he added.
