NC responsible for erosion of J&K’s special status: Vakil 

Excelsior Correspondent

SRINAGAR, May 3: Continuing its tirade against National Conference and PDP leadership for deceptive politics, Peoples Conference senior vice president and former Minister Abdul Gani Vakil exclaimed that how can people expect the fulfilment of promises from those leaders who have been making false promises to people for decades together.
Addressing party workers at Naribal, Sutharna and Barman areas of Rafiabad Constituency, Vakil said, “It is strange that Omar Abdullah is making much noises about the restoration of Sadr-e-Riyasat and Prime Minister posts while his party is allying with a party which not only denigrated these posts but also is wholly and solly responsible for the erosion in autonomy”.
Vakil said that if Omar and his father Farooq Abdullah really means business, then he should impress upon Rahul Gandhi to announce the restoration of pre- 1953 position otherwise, it is simply a poll gimmick which cannot fetch him votes because people know who is playing to galleries just to seek their votes only.
PC leader said it was NC’s wrong decisions at crucial times that led to death and destruction in Kashmir and present uncertainty is the outcome of only the wrong doings of National Conference leadership.
Terming NC as turn coats Vakil asserted, “Time has come to teach such people a lesson that have lust for the power, so that they no more exploit the gullible people for their vested interests”.
Vakil asserted that NC is a tested failure and once in power, they can shake hands with anyone in Delhi and even RSS is not untouchable for them because they have all along been the proxies of RSS here.
Accusing NC of eroding article 370, Vakil further said, “During decades of NC rule, through 42 amendments in Central laws were made applicable to J&K and now the same party is shedding crocodile tears to appease voters”.
Vakil said that if PC comes to power, we will issue a white paper on constitutional position and erosions made thereafter which will expose NC and bring its real face before public.
Senior leader Khurshid Ahmad Khan, Javiad Ahmad Masoodi and Youth leader Umar Rashid also spoke on the occasion.
