National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah on Saturday reiterated that the political issue in Kashmir was neither an invention nor a creation of Pakistan.
“To blame Pakistan alone for the political situation or the current unrest in the Valley is a distortion of the truth. The people of J&K have espoused a political sentiment even when there was no external interference and this political sentiment forms the basis of the State’s special status that has since been eroded by extra-constitutional machinations,
Omar said while addressing a rally of party workers in this north Kashmir town.
“ The political issue in Kashmir is a result of historic blunders and broken promises by successive dispensations in New Delhi. The situation today stands compounded because of the present Central Government’s refusal to even acknowledge that a problem exists in Kashmir”, Omar Abdullah said.
He also lashed out at Chief Minister for her double- standard politics. He said “PDP’s charade of seeking CBMs and political initiatives could not conceal the party’s brazen abandonment of its own ideology and vision document in a bargain to attain power.”
“There is a stark difference between the Mehbooba Mufti of the opposition and the Mehbooba Mufti of the ruling PDP-BJP Government. It has now become evident that the Mehbooba of opposition was just an elaborate facade to pave way for Mehbooba Mufti’s ascent to the Chief Minister’s chair. Her theatrical performances as an opposition leader might have served her well but when people compare her present avatar to her previous posturing – she stands exposed. Every single promise made by the PDP to seek votes in the previous elections has been broken with utter contempt shown towards the people of the State”, the NC Working President added.
