Apni party aimed at blunting representative Kashmir voices: NC


Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday said the emergence of new political formulations as a handiwork of those who want to blunt the true representative voices of J&k, saying the move is aimed to ditch genuine political aspirations of the people of J&K.

Party spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said it is becoming clear that the continued detention of legitimate and tall political voices of J&K is not about law and order but are purely political in nature. “The way things are unfolding here in Jammu & Kashmir, it is pretty clear that central government in connivance with few are contriving to prop up yet another formation in J&K to serve its interests at the cost of democracy and political probity. They want to fill the political vacuum of Kashmir with those who parrot what New Delhi wants them to. It is, therefore, safe to call this new formation as Delhi’s Party and nothing else.”

He said while National Conference is not against having new parties in J&K but the timings and the constituent elements of the newly formed dispensation is what frets common people who are privy to everything.

“A new political amalgamation of strange bedfellows is being pushed down the throats by crowing out genuine representatives of people, former chief ministers, sitting Member of parliament, former lawmakers. It is no less than a mockery,” he said adding, “Such political outfits are also bound to meet the same fate as other air-dropped outfits, whose sole purpose has been to harm the political interests of Kashmir.”

“The new amalgamation has the same leaders as have helped anti-democratic forces pull down democratically elected governments in J&k. The members who have joined the new group are the same who pulled down

Dr Farooq’s government in 1984 to cobble up with center,” he added.

“It is crystal clear now that the genuine and representative voices of J&K have been crowed-out with a sole purpose to benefit few. New Delhi and BJP wants to give them time to poach people from NC especially from PDP, Congress,” he said.

“After rummaging around, New Delhi has chosen some to play the role of GM Bakshi and GM Sadiq and do the job for them. Here we have a person, who wants people to believe that he had a eureka moment to safeguard the interests of people at a time when the entire political leadership is facing confinement when the people are still mourning the painful loss. He is sanctimoniously questioning the political acumen of the people of J&K, who he assumes are easy to fleece,’’ he said.

“All this is happening at a big cost, by throttling the tall and representative voices of J&K. What is being done in J&K is not entirely out of the track, the BJP and the central government led by it has time and again maintained that it wanted to have mainstream in place in Kashmir, who works at its whims,” he said.

Imran while raising doubts on the present ruling dispensations new road map in Kashmir said, “A mockery of democracy it is.  It is no less than a charade to speak of democracy and electoral politics at a time when all tall representative voices, ex-chief ministers, sitting parliamentarians, ex-union ministers of J&K are incarcerated on one pretext on another. No one is going to buy this.  The people of the country bear witness to the fact as to how they currently incarcerated leadership of J&K has been at braving all odds for the cause of democracy.”

He said these new formations are being provided with every help from all quarters by New Delhi to float a New Front and that it’s so-called party constitution which they say is in offing won’t be out unless vetted by BJP.

“The very first gift of this new amalgamation is nixing of the name Shere Kashmir from SKICC. National Conference unequivocally condemns the act and calls upon the saner voices to stop targetting the biggest leader of the sub-continent who cannot be erased from our collective memory,” he said.
