Rahul tested friend of J&K: Omar

KL Report


Addressing election rallies at Dooru and Kokernag in South Kashmir on Monday, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who is also Working President of the National Conference, said that by defeating PDP in the current Lok Sabha Elections people would be ensuring the defeat of communal forces spearheaded by Narendra Modi.

According to a statement, he added that defeating PDP would also amount to a defeat of falsehood and deceptive politics.

“Both PDP and BJP are skilled at flaring up emotions, dividing various sections of the society, polarizing the atmosphere and making false promises which they have conveniently shelved whenever they came to power”, he said while stating that BJP pledge in its manifesto about abrogation of Article 370, enactment of the Uniform Civil Code and constructing a Temple at the site of Babri Masjid at Ayodhya were all indication of the communal mindset of Narendra Modi. He said PDP is an active accomplice and partner of BJP’s conspiracy to divide the people on communal lines and is working day and night to help Narendra Modi in his pursuit to be the Prime Minister of India.

Omar Abdullah said that bartering the interests of Jammu and Kashmir for Chief Ministership has been the handiwork of PDP in the past. He said PDP’s interests in trading innocent lives and emotions of the people became amply clear when this party came to power in the State. “The hidden face of PDP got revealed before the masses through their anti-people agenda and behavior during its tenure in the power”, Omar Abdullah said and maintained that PDP cannot fool the people again and again by their tactical and deceitful political characteristics.

The Working President National Conference said that the father-daughter Mufti duo can to any extent for the temptation of self-seeking power even if that meant selling the interests of Jammu and Kashmir as has been vindicated time and again even since Mufti Sahab’s entry into politics. He said yet another proof in this regard is PDP’s tactful support to Modi to become Prime Minister of India despite his known animosity against Jammu and Kashmir and its people.

Omar Abdullah said that fielding of candidates in the current Lok Sabha Elections particularly in Jammu-Poonch and Undhampur-Doda Parliamentary Constituencies by the PDP to benefit BJP has unearthed the hidden alliance between the two parties.

Omar cautioned the people against going astray because of PDP’s deceptive and fake sloganeering, falsehood and propaganda. “This has been the habit of PDP all along. You should beware of falling prey in their trap”, he added elaborating that NC-Congress coalition in the State and at the Centre is only capable of ameliorating the lot of people of the State and in ensuring peace, progress and political stability.

The Working President National Conference said that Rahul Gandhi is a time tested friend of Jammu and Kashmir and his intention to seek all round welfare and prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir is clear and demonstrated. He said Rahul Gandhi symbolizes the secular and democratic ethos of the country and deserves to be the Prime Minister and lead the country towards new heights, ensuring inclusive and equitable development.

Omar asked the people to vote in large numbers in favour of NC-Congress joint candidate Dr. Mehboob Beg and help democracy and secularism to get strengthened in the country as well as the State. He said National Conference MPs have always highlighted Jammu and Kashmir centric issues in the Parliament positively and will continue to do so in the future while the then PDP Parliament Member Mehbooba Mufti’s track record in this regard has been shockingly dismal and disappointing.

The election rallies were also addressed by Union Minister for Health and Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, President Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee, Prof. Saif-ud-Din Soz,  National Conference Provincial President Kashmir Nasir Aslam Wani, Minister for Tourism, Ghulam Ahmad Mir, NC-Congress joint candidate, Dr. Mehboob Baig and various other leaders of National Conference and Congress.
