Srinagar: People’s Democratic Party legislator from Zadibal Constituency Abid Hussain Ansari Saturday said that his campaign against party spokesperson Naeem Akhtar is based on facts and truth. He said that his sole objective and slogan is ‘Akhtar Hathao, Party Bachao’ (Remove Akhtar, Save Party).
“It vindicates my stand that not a single party leader has criticized or opposed my stand against Nayeem Akhtar. If people like Akhtar will stay in the party, the party is bound to suffer,” Abid Ansari told reporters at Zadibal.
He alleged that Nayeem Akhtar ruined the Department of Education. He said that the employees from this department celebrated his removal. “Like employees from Education department now the contractors and the PWD employees will hit to roads and will blame Akhtar for mess which he is going to create in the department now,” Ansari claimed.
Responding to a question, Ansari said that it will not be a rosy walk for PDP in coming Parliament elections. “If you want to win the elections then you have to work for the people and keep your doors open to them. If you act like Nayeem Akhtar, shut your doors for people then you are bound to suffer. Don’t forget, Dr Farooq Abdullah is a seasoned politician and it will be very difficult for the party to defeat him,” he said and added that in South Kashmir also PDP will face a tough competition.
