Alliance partners working to weaken State’s special status: Sagar

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Mar 12: Asserting that attempts are being made to change the Muslim character of the Kashmir valley, General Secretary National Conference advocate Ali Mohammad Sagar warned that any such move aimed at changing the demography of the State will be resisted strongly.
Ali Mohammad Sagar said this while addressing thousands of workers of Kashmir valley during remembrance ceremony organized in memory of late party leader late Sheikh Nazir by National Conference.
“Already attempts are being made to change the special status of the State now some parties have wicked plans to alter the demography of the State, which will happen over our dead bodies. People must be made aware of these conspiracies,” Sagar told the mourners.
He said a proof to this fact was given to the people during the Parliamentary and then in the assembly elections, after the so-called peoples party entered into an unholy alliance with the BJP, the sole of which is to erode anything that relates State with the centre.
“By entering into an alliance with PDP, BJP has clear cut plans to erode the identity, the multi-pluralistic culture and the Kashmiriyat of the State”, he stated.
He warned that removing the special law eventually will end up changing the demography of the State and turning the majority population into minority.
Taking a dig at the separatist leaders, Sagar asked “Why are they (Hurriyat leaders) silent over this issue? They haven’t responded to what Mufti has said. If at all they have helped Mufti in the elections, then why don’t they respond?.
Sagar urged Mufti Sayeed to take a cue from the leadership of Omar Abdullah, and understand how as a Chief Minister, a State is run, and the good governance is provided to the people.
Among others who spoke were senior party leader Mohammad Akbar Lone, Nasir Aslam Wani, Ali Mohammad Kar, Irfan Shah, Peer Afaaq, Tanvir Sadiq and district presidents of the State.
