Kashmir specific NC least bothered about Jammu, Ladakh: BJP
Jammu: Alleging that Dr Farooq Abdullah, the National Conference patron, had left no stone unturned in exposing the ‘extremist ideology’ his party was suggesting to adopt if it came in power, Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party has said that his (Farooq’s) words must have sounded like music to the ears of separatists, pro-separatists and pro-Pak lobbies .
A press release issued stated quoted Gupta as saying that such statements had ‘pierced the sentiments of people of Jammu &Ladakh like poisonous arrows’.
The press release further added that the National Conference was under the misconceived notion that there was no alternative to National Conference this time and added that Farooq was trying to become a “messiah of peace”, when people hold Abdullahs and NC responsible for the turmoil in Kashmir. “Kashmiris, having suffered for generations, due to their blind faith in NC, are determined this time to not to fall prey to its lolli pop politics. Kashmiris have had enough of sugar coated pills dished out by NC followed by vadakhilafi (broken promises), conflicting statements to suit the political convenience of its leadership, utopian greater autonomy, dynastic and autocratic rule and politics of convenience,” the press release quoted Gupta as stating.
People have realised that Abdullahs are neither sincere to them or the people of Jammu &Ladakh but only sincere to their chair and for saving their chair, they can sacrifice anybody including the Kashmiris. No amount of old wine in new bottles is going to please the Kashmiris this time, the press release added.
“By ridiculing ‘Operation All Out’ and belittling Indian Army, Farooq is in no way contributing towards return of normalcy but adding fuel to the fire. Terrorism has to be finished and the efforts of the Indian Security Forces and JK Police in eliminating terror cannot be made subject of electoral politics. His party has already announced that it would scrap “Operation All Out”, if returned to power. The Jammu &Ladakh regions whole heartedly oppose such a thinking of NC and will give it a befitting reply to ensure that they come nowhere even close to power,” Gupta added.
Gupta also alleged that Farooq was deliberately playing with words to create a misconception about proposed multi -national talks with the Taliban with the issue of holding talks with the Hurriyat. "If New Delhi can be a part of unconditional talks with Taliban, why can't it initiate an unconditional dialogue in Kashmir? The fact is that there are no unconditional talks with Taliban but Taliban is not allowed to put any pre-conditions for the talks in case the talks are to be held” Brig Gupta. The stand of the Government of India is unambiguously clear that it is ready for talks with anybody added.
