National Conference legislator and uncle of the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, Shiekh Mustafa Kamal Wednesday alleged New Delhi for “harbouring Syed Ali Geelani to weaken NC in Jammu and Kashmir.”
“Not only Pakistan but New Delhi is also providing monetary assistance to Geelani and other like-minded separatist leaders to uproot National Conference from the political map of the State,” Kamal told Srinagar based news agency CNS. He however added “people have lost faith in Geelani.”
Kamal alleged that Geelani was released to persuade people especially the supporters of Jamat-e-Islami to caste vote in favour of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in forthcoming Parliament and assembly elections.
“Geelani and Company will now visit NC bastions to enforce election boycott and would urge upon Jamat-e-Islami supporters and leaders to help PDP during elections,” he said.
He said that PDP and Jamat-e-Islami are hand in glove while Geelani is playing a key role in strengthening their bond. “They should know that they can’t uproot NC as it is the only party in Jammu and Kashmir which has a strong base. Geelani, Jamat-e-Islami or PDP will never succeed in their designs,” Kamal said.
National Conference Additional General Secretary lashed out at Hurriyat leaders and said that they are playing negative politics to digest the funds which they receive both from India and Pakistan.
“What these Hurriyat leaders could do for people when they are themselves scattered and disintegrated, if their agenda is one, then why they have opened their shops separately. The fact is that they fill up their coffers and befool fool,” Kamal said adding people of Kashmir should try to find out the reasons why these separatist leaders are not ready to share the same dais.
Kamal reiterated that Geelani was not arrested by the Government but sometime authorities imposed restrictions on his movement to avoid untoward incidents.
