Srinagar, November 13
The ruling PDP on Sunday attributed the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen commander Burhan Wani in July to a big conspiracy to topple the PDP-BJP government in a bid to escape the charges of the failures of administration in the past over four months of paralyzed life in Kashmir.
In a surprise move the ruling party held one-day convention at the party headquarters in Srinagar wherein the emphasis was projecting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti as a strong leader who was being targeted by “ enemies of peace” because of her immense popularity and goodwill among the people.
Today, the charge of hailing Mehbooba’s leadership qualities was led by party M P Muzaffar Hussain Beig, who was elected to Lok Sabha in 2014 elections. He showered praise on the Chief Minister and asserted repeatedly that she was the only leader who could steer the state to new morrow of hope and promise to lift the fortunes of the youth.
Beig punctuated his speech with a lot of praise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi , who, he said , can resolve the Kashmir issue , for he alone had the support of the “ country’s majority population of Hindus.” None of his predecessors had this support , hence he alone can resolve the issue.
The convention was a message to the political opponents who had been chastising the Chief Minister for her “ inability in checking the troubles in Kashmir” post killing of Burhan Wani in July and the separatists who call Mehbooba as “ puppet of Delhi, extending the RSS agenda in the Valley.”
Beig and other leaders tore into this criticism by suggesting that it was a “ big conspiracy” to “ dislodge the Mehbooba Mufti government,” suggesting that the killing of the militant was a “ deliberate act” and the Chief Minister was not in know of things before hand. The PDP leaders, however, did not identity the conspirators.
