Sr. Vice President J&K Peoples Conference and former minister Abdul Gani Vakil today said the greed for power of National Conference and PDP is the main reason for the prevailing chaos, uncertainty, and insecurity in J&K especially Kashmir valley and said these parties can go to any extent for the sake of power.
Vakil was addressing a party workers convention in Najibhat in Baramulla and Kralpora in Chadoora today.
While addressing the convention Vakil said the National Conference has a history that despite the party being repeatedly betrayed and humiliated by Congress, for the sake of the chair, it always compromised and shook hands with Congress. “From Sheikh Abdullah to Farooq Abdullah and now Omar Abdullah, NC was humiliated, ditched by Congress, but every time these opportunist politicians for the sake of power embraced Congress.
Vakil said that PDP is nothing different than NC, saying, the Muftis fought elections to keep BJP away from Kashmir, but later aligned with them to grab the power and made a historic betrayal with its own people and people will never forget that historical blunder of PDP.
Both NC and PDP have a history of betrayals and it is because of the betrayals of both these dynastic parties, Kashmir is suffering and paying hugely. “NC passed Autonomy resolution when Farooq Abdullah was CM and the same resolution was rejected by the Govt of India, in which Omar Abdullah was a minister. To whom they are trying to deceive and how long…,” Vakil added.
“History is a testament to the fact that both NC and PDP allowed continuous hollowing of Article 370 during their regimes. Who is responsible for thousands of innocent killings in the last three decades? Who is responsible for slapping PSA’s on our youth? In the last three decades, J&K has had either an NC or a PDP Government. The two parties have taken turns in killing, maiming, jailing, and humiliating Kashmiris. Vakil added.
NC and PDP have the audacity to project themselves as the victims whereas, in reality, they have all along been the ones creating victims out of Kashmiris”, the PC leader remarked.
Vakil said NC & PDP are eager to form an alliance in order to grab power. They can no longer mislead the people of J&K. There is a strong desire among the people for a change of leadership, Vakil added. (KNS)
