SRINAGAR: In a fervent address at a workers’ convention in Trehgam constituency, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference President, Sajad Lone, pulled no punches as he held the National Conference (NC) leadership accountable for what he termed as “innocent killings, torture, and unjust imposition” on the Kashmiri populace since 1987.

Lone minced no words as he lambasted NC leaders for their alleged involvement in various atrocities over the years, including the proliferation of graveyards in every village and the imposition of the Public Safety Act (PSA) on Kashmiri civilians. He accused them of a “strong ideological alignment” with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), citing historical instances where Omar Abdullah, as an NDA minister, defended the killings of Muslims.

“NC leaders unethically chose to succumb to a mere ministerial role even when Vajpayee’s government rejected NC’s proposal for greater autonomy in the 90s,” Lone declared, asserting that NC’s alliance with BJP has been longstanding. He accused them of invoking Islam in Kashmir as a cover-up for their alleged crimes against Kashmiris.

Addressing the enthusiastic gathering, which included esteemed party leaders and supporters, Lone expressed gratitude for their overwhelming support. He emphasized the significance of such massive gatherings, heralding it as a pivotal moment in Jammu and Kashmir’s history, where the majority demands the restoration of dignity and rights.

“The resounding message is crystal clear: Peoples Conference is not only here to endure but to triumph, amplifying the voice of the common man in the halls of Parliament,” Lone declared, rallying his supporters.

Lone vowed that North Kashmir would no longer allow “tourists” to dictate their future, asserting that those who failed to advocate for their rights in Parliament for over 28 years are undeserving of contesting from Baramulla Parliamentary constituency.

The convention marked a fierce reiteration of Peoples Conference’s commitment to justice, accountability, and the empowerment of the common Kashmiri. As the political landscape in the region continues to evolve, Lone’s words resonate as a call to action for those seeking change and justice in Jammu and Kashmir
