SRINAGAR, Dec 16: National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today said BJP’s policy in Jammu and Kashmir is aimed at driving wedge in the people of the UT just to deflect them from underway efforts in the restoration of J&K’s abridged rights.
Omar was addressing workers convention in Bandipora. Among others, Party general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani, Member Parliament Baramulla Mohammad Akbar Lone, senior leaders Choudhary Mohammad Ramzaan, Nazir Gurezi, Tanvir Sadiq, provincial vice president Ahsan Pardesi, district president GR Naaz, YNC provincial president Salman Ali Sagar and YNC zone president Sameer Bhat were also present on the occasion.
The NC vice-president stated that DDC elections were hurried to thwart the unity of a number of political parties in the shape of PAGD. “They thought that the alliance partners would fight separately but it didn’t happen. NC went out of its way and made sacrifices to ensure the alliance takes deep roots. They failed to achieve that end. The results were a telling indictment of the people’s aversion for the decisions taken by Government of India on 5 of August 2019,” he said.
He further added that BJP is incessantly trying to divide the voice of the people of J&K so that its stooges and cronies make it to the legislature to give credence to the August 5, 2019 decisions. “They haven’t stopped yet. The next thing to do on their agenda is to fragment our voices so that they and their B-teams make it to the legislature and sanction the unilateral, undemocratic and unconstitutional decisions of August 05, 2019. They will use the legislature to justify their undemocratic decisions nationally and globally. They will use the sanction in the Supreme Court as well,” he added.
Calling for strengthening efforts underway to get back our rights, he said the people of J&K know that these B-teams of BJP are flying under false colors and their sole agenda is to help BJP to get the sanction of the JK legislature. “We have to work together to achieve the ultimate goal of securing our abridged rights,” he said, adding, NC will continue to strive for the protection of their cultural, land, job and democratic rights which were snatched away from them on 5 August 2019.
