Budgam/Srinagar, April 22, (Scoop News)- Expressing dismay over the venomous statements being dished out by some BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders, PDP Patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said such utterances have to be viewed more seriously than mere police cases or violation of Model Code of Conduct (MCC) as these could have ruinous consequences.
“The virulent statements of BJP leader Griraj Kishore and VHP leader Praveen Togadia, are loaded with communal intrigue which could not only destabilize the country but have the potential of hitting at the very idea of India,” Sayeed said while addressing election rallies in Beerwa assembly segment of Srinagar-Budgam Parliamentary constituency. Party leaders Dr Mohammad Shafi Wani, District President Saifudin Bhat, Zone President Hissamudin Bhat, Gulzar Ahmad Baig and Bashir Ahamd Baig were also present on this occasion.
PDP patron said the Sangh Parivar is playing a dangerous game by stoking the fires of communalism and pitting people against each other for political gains.
Cautioning that such spiteful utterances could cost the country very heavy, Sayeed said the polarization of people on religious and ethnic lines could have worse consequences than festering sore of subcontinent’s partition which led to an unending cycle of human misery and destruction.
Asking the country’s political leadership, across the board, not to get trapped in the treacherous divisive discourse, Sayeed said; “I am sure the people of the country are emancipated enough to see through the designs of these divisive elements and won’t allow them to succeed.”
Condemning the latest spate of innocent killings at Tral, Sayeed said after witnessing a relaxation in security environment for a brief period between 2002 and 2005, unfortunately the people of Kashmir have again got entangled in a vicious circle of death and destruction with the arrival of NC-Congress coalition regime. He expressed his deep grief at the loss of innocent lives and conveyed his heartfelt sympathies to their families.
Dubbing the present government as a misfortune for the State, PDP Patron said the people of J&K seem to have become the victims of the ungoverned rage let loose on them by the present government.
Sayeed said immediately after taking over in 2002, while PDP-led coalition government’s foremost priority was to provide a sense of security to the people, the relaxation in the security environment was effectively supplemented with relief through development and economic rejuvenation. He said if voted to power in 2014, PDP would work towards implementing its unaccomplished agenda of securing peace, stability and prosperity for Jammu & Kashmir.
Sayeed said plagued by ineptitude, disorder and corruption, the political structure of the present coalition government has completely collapsed resulting in the paralysis of the state’s administrative structure as well. “And it is a pity that the Chief Minister instead of improving his performance is busy blaming everybody except his own ways for pushing the state and its people into this quagmire,” he said.
Referring to Tosamaidan issue, Sayeed said the meadow should be got vacated from the Army and developed as a tourist resort given its picturesque location.
Sayeed said the ongoing polls are a testing time for the people of Jammu & Kashmir, as they would be not just be electing their representatives for Parliament, but chalking out a new political and economic course of action for the State. He said PDP has put up its credible faces in this election so that they can represent their aspirations with a strong voice in the Parliament.
