ANC Snubs Dr Farooq

KL Report


Jammu and Kashmir Awami National Conference (ANC) has expressed deep anguish over National Conference president, Dr Farooq Abdullah’s inability to de-link his brand of politics from personal relationships even at times of bereavement.

“Dr Abdullah did not have the decency of even mentioning his elder sister, Begum Khalida Shah, while addressing the 4th day congregational prayer meeting for his maternal aunt, late Begum Shams-ud-din Bhenji,” ANC spokesperson said in a statement.

Voicing his sense of hurt over Dr Abdullah’s deliberate omission of his elder sister’s name on the solemn and somber occasion, he said Begum Khalida, who needed no introduction, had gone abroad during the bereavement.
