Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed disgust at the latest round of accusations and obnoxious remarks by the former State Governor S K Sinha against the party and its patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

The spokesman said the problem of people like Sinha is that they don’t want any state government to speak up for their people and like to see elected government of the State to do the bidding of the center instead. Any government that defies this expectation is quickly dubbed as anti national as Sinha has done in case of the PDP-led government and accused it of “having been a spokesman of militants”, he said.
Referring to the PDP proposal for having a governor elected by the State legislature, the spokesman said though many governors sent to the State were men of outstanding capabilities and distinction, exceptions like Sinha had brought the high office into disrepute.

Commenting on the extremely provocative anti-Muslim remarks of BJP candidate from Pilibhit, UP, Varun Gandhi, the spokesman said Varun was in fact the younger face of Sinha. The streak of rabid communalism runs right across the Sangh Parivar to which both belong. “As if to emphasize their solidarity”, the spokesman pointed out both had chosen the same day for baring their fangs.
