SRINAGAR Peoples Conference General Secretary Imran Reza Ansari on Monday said that Omar Abdullah by questioning intentions behind new & emerging parties makes us wonder if he thinks Kashmir is his fiefdom, his monarchal right and that nobody else shall come and join the fray.
Amazed at his selective sense of morality, Ansari said that Omar Abdullah wants a democracy in which NC is the sole party and it is not surprising. If you look at the record of their MLAs, they thrive and prosper on people boycotting the polls. They are perhaps the biggest beneficiaries of the conflict and boycott. By ensuring minimal participation in polls, they have shamelessly clung on to seats where barely 5-6% people vote.
Ansari further added that Omar Abdullah should introspect as to how the rigging of 1987 elections pushed the people of Kashmir away from the mainstream.
The polling rate in Srinagar in 1987 elections was touching 80% and after the 1987 rigging till date it is in single digit figures. This is precisely what the NC wants a low voter turnout.
Ansari said that NC has a history of accusing its opponents of Delhis support and Peoples Conference will challenge their sense of entitlement with all vigor.
Omar Abdullah wants a single party system democracy in J&K. Whenever a new party comes up he accuses them of being made in Delhi. The amazing irony is that nobody is as organically made in Delhi as he is. Their comeback to the electoral politics was a unique, first of its kind in the democratic world where a person who was not even an MLA was made Chief Minister under some accord and whatever was left of our special status was bargained for their lust for power.
Ansari further said that Omar Abdullah is acting like a tantrum throwing pampered cry baby who is angry at other people playing with his toys.
