Sajad Lone Hits Out At NC Over Its “U-Turn” On Delimitation Commission                         

SRINAGAR: Reminding the National Conference of its own statement wherein they asserted that participation in the delimitation commission would tantamount to accepting the events of August 5, Peoples Conference President Sajad Gani Lone on Saturday asked the party to explain how it was an endorsement to abrogation of the Article 370 then and not now.

In a tweet, J&K Peoples Conference put out a statement made earlier by the NC that participation in proceedings of delimitation commission would be tantamount to accepting August 5 decisions and it is unwilling to do so.

“Please at least have the courtesy to show even some pretence and explain how it was tantamount to endorsement then and not now. Digital world. Digital proof. Chit bhi meri patt be meri won’t work. The era of Multiple speeches Srinagar and Delhi— in multiple places is over,” Lone tweeted. In another tweet, the party asked NC what compelled it to participate in proceedings of the delimitation commission.

“These are the utterances of Dr Farooq Abdullah. What changed between then and now for the NC to now participate. Is it not tantamount to endorsing August 5 decisions now? There is a limit to a monopoly on morality. Please at least have the courtesy to show even some pretence and explain how it was tantamount to endorsement then and how it is not tantamount to endorsement now, ” the party tweeted.

It is pertinent to mention that NC had earlier boycotted proceedings of the panel, saying it is the product of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act- 2019 which it had challenged in the Supreme Court.
