A large number of youth assembled and flooded Kupwara to demonstrate their support to “caravan of change” propounded by Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference (JKPC) and its top leadership.
According to a statement issued by JKPC to KNS, the enthusiastic youths surround their leader Sajad Gani Lone at main market Kupwara who was on his way to tour different areas of Kupwara, chanting slogans in his favour and change, take him to municipal Park where the youths had assembled. The public meeting was organized by Jammu and Kashmir youth People’s Conference.
Addressing the youth, Sajad Lone rebutted the PDP patron Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s claims that had he been Chief Minister he would have not have allowed the execution of Afzal Guru to take place. Lone questioned Sayeed as to why Mufti wasn’t able to stop the execution of Maqbool Bhatt when he enjoyed the highest office of Congress party in the state.
Lone took grave notice of the manner in which both the Delhi backed parties the NC and PDP resort to manipulation and gross distortion of facts to exploit the people of Kashmir. Lone went on to state that not only is it a mockery of the people and a belittling of their intellect but also unabashed dementia on the part of the two parties.
“While they may conveniently gloss over their bloodied past the people of Kashmir are reminiscent of the treachery and blood bath instigated by both Mufti and the Abdullah clan. While taking collective credit for everything in Kashmir the two parties must undertake a reality check and realise that it is because of the sacrifices of the people that any forward movement took place. Mufti needs to take a realistic assessment and burst the bubble of self-created grandeur and acknowledge the role of a post 9/11 political situation, the India-Pakistan peace process and the role of the requisite leadership in New Delhi and Islamabad before showering all credit on him.”
Lone said that while boasting of highest offices it will be well for Mufti to remember his deeds while enjoying the offices in the form of recommending APSFA, the designation of Jagmohan and the defence of security forces action in the Kunan Posh Pora rape case.
“As for NC the less said the better. The latest stunt of the Patron Farooq Abdullah being a vivid example. It may have been a trivial metaphor for the NC but it cost a precious human life. This has but been the modus operandi of the NC all along: to encourage violence, create a fear psychosis and watch as the killings increase corresponding with the increase in the NC’s fortunes.”
