Jammu, November 8
For the first time since National Conference lost 2014 Assembly elections, the party president and former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to quit as she could not protect lives and property of the people in Kashmir.
Addressing a convention of the women leaders of National Conference at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan, the provincial headquarters of the party in Jammu, Farooq Abdullah said that the people have had enough of Mehbooba Mufti and her failures. “ It would be good if Mehbooba realizes that her miles-long missteps during her seven-month long rule have unleashed death and destruction in Kashmir. The only way out is that she should step down.”
Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah, also working president of NC and former Chief Minister, were among the front line leaders who had urged Mehbooba Mufti to take over reins of the government after her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s death in January this year.
“ Now Kashmir is burning and the borders flared up, border residents are living under the shadow of fear of getting consumed by mortar shells. She is unable to do anything for them. She is a total failure,” Farooq said in the severest of indictment of the Chief Minister.
He also asked Delhi to open dialogue with Pakistan to stop this carnage on borders and save Kashmir from all the trauma that it has undergone all these years.
