Srinagar, April 27, (Scoop News)- National Conference Party President Dr. Farooq Abdullah addressed impressive public meetings in Khanyar, Srinagar and Magam, Beerwah today and said that PDP’s open support to BJP was a historic betrayal with the people of Jammu & Kashmir and Mufti Mohammad Sayeed should know that there is a limit to a nation’s tolerance to gimmickry, political intrigues and lies.
Speaking to the public in Khanyar, Srinagar, Dr. Farooq Abullah said “Every single vote that you will cast for National Conference will be a vote against the Modi-Mufti Alliance and will be a vote that will stop the march of communal forces from entering J&K”. Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that National Conference was a political institution founded on sacrifices and public service unlike PDP which was a coalition of opportunistic individuals who are bound together by their insatiable hunger for power and position. “National Conference has defended Article 370 and Kashmiriyat from hundreds of intrigues and thousands of enemies and National Conference will continue to be a protection shield for J&K and its people long after I am gone”.
Addressing the public meeting in Khanyar, Srinagar, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that Mufti Mohamamd Sayeed was an anti-Kashmir individual by conviction who was an exception in the presumption that a politician would at least have some basic amount of compassion for his own people. “Mufti Sayeed nurtures a grudge against Kashmiris that they have handed him embarrassing electoral defeats from his native constituency repeatedly four times, a loud and clear rejection that forced his rehabilitation in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh as a Member of Parliament from a safe seat there at a time when Mufti Sayeed couldn’t garner more than 300 votes in his own State”, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said.
Those who spoke at the public meeting in Khanyar, Srinagar included NC Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, Senior NC Leader and MLA Khanyar Ali Mohammad Sagar, NC Srinagar District President and MLA Zadibal Peer Afaq, MLA Habba Kadal Shameema Firdous and NC Youth President Salman Ali Sagar among various senior NC leaders and functionaries.
Speaking at another public meeting in Magam, Beerwah Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that the same elements who are conspiring against National Conference and Kashmir today had conspired against Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah at a time when he was languishing in jails for his people. “My father braved all odds but never disappointed his people. I have in all earnestness tried to walk on the path of my father all my life and I am sure that National Conference and Omar Abdullah will continue to serve the people of J&K with the same sincerity of purpose and patriotic passion”.
Addressing the people in Magam, Budgam, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will continue to be united and all efforts by Mufti Sayeed and PDP to divide them are bound to fail since this nation is united in its common ideals of communal harmony, amity, peace and secularism. “One would have never imagined that a political party from J&K could possibly be brazen enough to join hands with Narendra Modi. The very thought was unimaginable until Mufti Mohammad Sayeed jumped into Modi’s lap and started taking orders from him during this election campaign”, Dr. Farooq said.
Dr. Farooq Abdullah asked the people in Srinagar and Beerwah to vote in large numbers in favor of the National Conference candidates so that National Conference could continue to be the shield of protection for this State, its special status and its people.
Those who spoke at the public meeting in Magam, Beerwah included Senior National Conference Leader Ali Muhammad Sagar, NC Provincial President Jammu Devender Rana, MLC Panchayati Raj Ali Mohammad Dar, Professor Abdul Majeed Mattoo, Mohammad Ibrahim Mir and Sajjad Shaheen.
