NC’s opposition to troop withdrawal not surprising: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 5: Commenting on the National Conference’s opposition to the resolution on troop withdrawal and revocation of AFSPA in the legislative assembly, the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat acting general secretary, Peer Saifullah said it was on “expected lines and there was nothing surprising about it.”
Pertinently, the Peoples’ Democratic Party had yesterday moved a resolution on troop cut and AFSPA revocation in the assembly which was opposed by the NC led coalition.
Peer, who was addressing a Friday prayer meeting at Masjid Iqra here today, blamed NC for all ‘miseries and hardships’ of Kashmiris. He, according to Tehreek statement, alleged that NC had been Kashmiris’ enemy from the beginning. “Its history is replete with betrayals,” he said, adding that its leadership had always been “pursuing the policy of double-standards.”
“On one hand, its leaders are trying to befool people by speaking against black laws and demanding troop withdrawal at public meetings, on the other, they oppose the resolution on these in assembly,” he said.
Peer also lashed out at PDP, saying “Its ruckus in assembly is a drama. This party is based on diabolic politics and sans sincerity. Had it been sincere in its claims it could have done a lot during its rule.”
Peer has strongly condemned, what he said, razing of houses during encounter at Tral. He alleged that the troops were deliberately destroying the houses of civilians during encounters.
Meanwhile, Muslim League Jammu Kashmir has cautioned the people against machinations of vested interests behind the group clashes, urging them to settle their matters amicably.
In a statement today, its spokesman condemned the continued detention of pro-freedom leaders and activists, saying that such repressive steps would not break their courage and determination.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Political Movement chief organizer Khawaja Firdous said the people would continue their struggle till the complete demilitarization of the Jammu Kashmir.
