Apni Party lowers sanctity of democracy, revealing how morally, ethically deprived it is: NC
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Thursday expressed shock over Apni Party’s statement wherein it had obliquely equated representing people’s aspirations with running a political shop saying the statement has lowered the sanctity of democracy besides revealing how morally and ethically deprived Apni Party is.
While taking exception to the statement of Apni Party, where in it had said that it will close its shop if Gupkar declaration signatories would succeed in restoring the Articles 370, 35-A, Party’s Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said that the statement indirectly reveals that politics for Apni Party is not a medium of representing people’s aspirations but a trade.
“The sordid assertions are coming from the horse’s mouth itself, not anybody else. They themselves have stated that if articles 370, 35 –A are restored they will be shutting their political shop. It is unfortunate to see the Apni Party drag down politics to the level of barter and trade. They need to come clean on this issue and reveal to people where they are headed towards. The statement is disrespectful of the people and their genuine aspirations. It is indeed an eye opener for the people,” he said.
Referring to the Apni Party statement where it had alluded to restoration of articles 370, 35-A as impractical slogan, Imran said the cynicism of the APP on the restoration of Articles 370, 35-A cannot be made light of, and that there must be reasons behind APP’s disbelief that the Articles 370,35-A would not be restored back.
“The pleas challenging the measures undertaken by GOI regarding Articles 370, 35-A on 5th of August last year are before the constitutional bench waiting for the validation from it. There ought to be a reason why the Apni Party is anticipating that the verdict would not come in favor of the people of J&K,” he said.
