Dr Farooq, Mehbooba experts in shedding crocodile tears: Vakil
Srinagar: Senior Vice President J&K Peoples Conference and Former Minister Abdul Gani Vakil on Friday said that NC and PDP can go to any extent for the sake of power.
“Whenever NC and PDP are out of power they make every effort to play with the sentiments of the people simply for the lust of power and when they are in power they totally forget the promises made to the people and on the other, they add more miseries and atrocities on the people. It is high time that people must ignore and shunt out both these parties from the future of Kashmir,” said Vakil.
Vakil was addressing a party workers convention in Babareshi and appealed to people to be aware of these demagogues who say one thing when in power and another thing when out of power.
“Kashmiris can’t be befooled anymore. Both NC and PDP should be ready for being rejected by the people of J&K. “History is a testament to the fact that both NC and PDP allowed continuous hollowing of Article 370 during their regimes and are responsible for thousands of innocent killings in the last three decades,” he added.
“Who is responsible for slapping PSA’s on our youth? Would Mehbooba Mufti or Dr. Farooq Abdullah answer why they were silent when they were in power and oversaw the massacre of young and old and hundreds being blinded by pellets?” Vakil asked
“In the last three decades, J&K had either an NC or a PDP Government. The two parties have taken turns in killing, maiming, jailing, and humiliating Kashmiris. Vakil said Dr. Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti are all-time experts in shedding crocodile tears,” he said.
Addressing the gathering, Senior PC Leader and Former Minister Syed Basharat Bukhari appealed to people to strengthen the Peoples Conference because it is the only party that has the strong leadership to take J&K out of these turbulent times.
