NC has developed vested interest in violence: Karra

Excelsior Correspondent
CHRAR-E-SHARIEF, Dec 5: Senior PDP  leader and Member Parliament, Tariq Hameed Karra today cautioned National Conference (NC) against pushing Kashmir again into a quagmire of death and destruction for electoral gains.
“I am sure the emancipated voters of Kashmir won’t allow NC to reenact the gory gambit of orchestrating reckless violence and using various devious means to ensure poll boycott, as it tried to do on earlier occasions,” Karra said while addressing a series of election meetings here to enlist support for the party candidate Ghulam Nabi Lone (Hanjoora).
He said NC’s very presence on the political landscape of J&K has now become a permanent threat to the State’s peace and stability as the party has developed vested interest in violence and bloodshed.
“The massive effort that had gone into creating a new atmosphere of peace, reconciliation and resolution in and around J&K seems at a real risk of going waste due to the violent machinations of NC,” he said adding that in the absence of a sustained political and administrative effort Kashmir is unfortunately sliding back into the vortex of violence perpetuated by NC and its cohorts.
Karra said it is now absolutely clear that the miseries the people of J&K have been undergoing for the past five decades are the outcome of the deceitful tactics resorted to by NC leaders in their lust for power. He cautioned that J&K could perhaps land up in a bigger trouble this time if NC is allowed to subvert the democratic institutions and processes, the way it did in 1987 in the run up to the worst ever political turmoil the State underwent for the past more than two decades. “But with the support of the people, PDP would fight every such move of the NC tooth and nail that is aimed at robbing the State’s people of their democratic rights,” he said.
