NC-Cong ‘Chief Architects’ of erosion of J&K’s special status: Vakil
Srinagar, May 03: Peoples Conference senior vice president Abdul Gani Vakil today said that how can people expect the fulfillment of promises from those leaders who have been making false promises to people for decades together.
Addressing party workers in Naribal, Sutharna and Baman areas of Rafiabad Constituency, Vakil said, “It is strange that Omar Abdullah is making so much noise about the restoration of Sadr-e-Riyasat and Prime Minister Posts while his party is allying with a party which not only denigrated these posts but also is the chief architect of the erosion of Article 370.”
Vakil said that if the National Conference really means business, it should impress upon Rahul Gandhi to announce the restoration of pre 1953 position.
Since the National Conference and Congress are in alliance, they should get the top Congress leadership to support their demand for the restoration of Prime Minister and Sadr-e-Riyasat posts. Otherwise it is simply a poll gimmick which cannot fetch them any more votes, he said.
Vakil said that it was NC’s wrong decisions at critical times that led to death and destruction in Kashmir and the present uncertainty is the outcome of sell-outs by the National Conference leadership to safeguard their family interests.
“Time has come to teach such people a lesson who have lust for the power, so that they no more exploit the gullible people for their vested interests”, he added.
Accusing NC of eroding article 370, Vakil further said, “During decades of NC rule, through 47 amendments the special status of J&K was eroded and now the same party is shedding crocodile tears to appease voters”.
