Dr Kamaal takes umbrage to Priya Sethi’s statement
Srinagar 09th Oct, 2018:- Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal Additional General Secretary J&K National Conference has taken umbrage to the statement of BJP State spokesperson Priya Sethi appearing in a leading English newspaper of Jammu Dated 5th instant wherein she has criticized National Conference MLA and President Woman’s Wing Kashmir Division Shameema Firdous over her statement accusing BJP- RSS combine of their hand in the Killing of two National Conference Workers in Srinagar city on 05-10-2018.
In a statement issued today, Dr Kamaal said that Priya Sethi has charged National Conference of rigging the 1987 elections a pet blame of all National Conference detractors which has not been substantiated till date.
“The unseating of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by an Allahabad Court on charges of rigging by rival Raj Narain in 1972 Parliament election is a classic example. Twelve cases from defeated candidates in 1987 approached the J&K High Court but failed to prove. Repeating a lie a thousand times will not make it a truth,” said Dr Kamaal.
He said: “Another lie of BJP State spokesperson is that National Conference never held elections to the Panchayats and ULB during their tenure. Infact, it was National Conference which brought in the J&K Panchayat Raj Act. This became a model for rest of the country in Rajiv Gandhi tenure as PM.
Dr. Kamaal further said the blame of BJP Spokesperson, that National Conference has hegemony of the ‘family and relations’ on political set-up is foolhardy and exposes her ignorance.
Deep down hatred of the myopic and communal BJP- RSS combine which is their hallmark stands completely exposed by the baseless accusations of BJP states spokesperson which I refute in its entirety.
“National Conference expects J&K Police to soon nab the assassins of two National Conference workers and bring them to book at the earliest,” he said.
