PDP-BJP Govt Would Be Remembered For ‘Atrocities’: Mir

SRINAGAR — J&K Congress chief G A Mir Monday said the PDP-BJP government would be remembered for “atrocities against innocent people.”


“Criticizing both PDP BJP for playing politics over the Kashmir situation and the issues confronting people, Mir said  the unholy alliance between these parties shall also be remembered for a long, for the fact, during their rule scores of people have been blinded, maimed and jails  were filled,  mass arrests, intimidation of innocent people and whatnot has been done by PDP BJP,” a party statement quoted him as saying at a party meeting in Dooru area of South Kashmir.


“Congress Party fought against the atrocities against people and came on roads against high handedness and innocent killings, but in response the PDP- BJP unholy alliance with the full support of Centre adopted repressive measures against Congress leaders aiming to silence the genuine voice, besides withdrawing security of our Party leaders one by one despite that Congress party did not compromise on its stated position of fighting against injustice and innocent killings,” Mir said.


Mir said Narender Modi’s “rhetoric was based on the lies and deceit, he will no longer be able to mislead people on religious and caste basis for electoral gains, blaming PDP for the damages caused to people in Kashmir valley.”


 No Buyers For NC’s ‘Political Thuggery: Sajad Lone

 Peoples Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone on Monday said political thuggery and political monkeying of National Conference has no space in the new generation.


Addressing party workers in Kangan, Sajad said that Omar Abdullah, as foreign minister of the BJP government between 1999-2002, travelled across the world capitals to put forward the BJP government’s view point on Kashmir.


“The BJP government’s manifesto and ideology today and in 1999 was the same. They believed in abrogation of article 370 then and they believe in it now. The question that we want to put to Omar Abdullah is that he was the Junior foreign minister. His job specifically at that time was to be the poster boy of that regime. May we remind him it was the time when human rights violations were at its peak. Let him tell the people—what all did he advocate when he went to foreign capitals as the poster boy of that BJP regime. One we know that he stressed that there were no human rights violations in Kashmir. Second let him tell us that did he advocate abrogation of Article 370 when he went to foreign capitals—that was the official policy at that time. This person who wants us to believe that he is the sole warrior against the BJP turns out to be an ex warrior of the BJP and will be a warrior in the future as well”, he added.


Sajad said that the NC is panicked by the impending rejection by the people and has gone into an overdrive in terms of theatrics.
