New DelhiCongress leader & former PDP member of parliament from Srinagar Tariq Hameed Karra Wednesday sdaid that he has been assured of all-out moral and political support by Congress high command & opposition leaders to protect Article 35A from any kind of nefarious tinkering or attempt for its abrogation.
This was stated by Karra after undertaking a week long process of briefings and consultations with opposition leaders and top leadership of Congress party in Delhi, including Dr. Manmohan Singh,Rahul Gandhi, Dr. Karan Singh, P Chidambaram, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ambika Soni.
Karra also discussed about the future course of action regarding Jammu & Kashmir group on policy and planning with the party leaders. This group was constituted few months ago by the Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
Karra said he briefed the Congress leadership about present unrest and prospective horrendous consequences in the event of tinkering with or abrogation of Article 35A which has been challenged in Supreme Court.
Karra accused BJP & PDP for collaborating in systematically and in phased manner disintegrating the distinct identity of Jammu & Kashmir, enshrined in the constitution of India.
Karra termed PDPs chest beating as just rhetoric and public posturing, sans any sincerity.
It is suffering with optical illusion of regaining its lost ground, day dreaming for saving itself form public wrath and is fantasizing to become the martyrs, Karra said.
The very fact that the Government of India did not file objections to the petition challenging Article 35A & Attorney Generals out of turn & politically motivated stand on it in the court stands testimony to the nefarious designs of the Right wingers & has once more proved the peoples perception correct about PDP of its betrayal & ill-gotten loaves of power.
Karra further said that PDP stands fully exposed as a collaborator & facilitator for the fascist agenda as it chose not to convince or force its alliance partner to file objections by Government of India in the court of Law.
Chief Ministers theoretical visit to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister who chose not to grant her audience till she receives some counseling from the Home Minister and later on PMs unceremonious directions to Chief Minister to meet Mr. Ram Madhav General Secretary BJP at his residence for obtaining the script has further demeaned the chair of CM, Karra said.
The morality demanded the PDP should have severed its illegitimate alliance with BJP then and there. Their continuation in this immoral and unholy alliance and their public utterances is a proof enough of a fixed match between the two perceptibly warring partners to address their respective constituencies. While BJP is true and steadfast to its fascist agenda, it is PDP which has actually lost its plot by surrendering its ideology and core philosophy to Sangh Parivar through a loosely knit and unsigned medium called agenda of alliance and just for the sake of lust for power, glitz and glamour by bartering the honour , dignity , self-esteem and distinct identity of over ten million heads.
