Omar trying to be more loyal than king: Hurriyat (G)
Srinagar, Dec 5: Hurriyat Conference (G) Monday accused the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah of trying to be “more loyal than the king” by dishing out statements on issues which are beyond his domain.
Reacting to Omar’s remarks on China, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar said CM made the statement to please “his masters in New Delhi for remaining in power.” “By mentioning Tibet and Taiwan, he has tried to please New Delhi so that he remains in power and nobody snatches it from him,” Akbar said in a statement.
He said China doesn’t raise any questions on the unity and sovereignty of India, but their declaration that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory “is an accepted fact.”
“It is a recognised fact that the entire world accepts that Kashmir is a dispute,” he added.
The spokesman further said that not only Indian rulers acknowledge disputed status of Kashmir, but Omar Abdullah also toes the same line.
The spokesman further said the statement of CM in Mumbai indicates that he is trying to befool Kashmiris like his father and grandfather. “His utterances are just part of vote bank politics. In order to keep his chair intact, Omar gives one statement here and speaks a different language elsewhere. He knows it well Kashmiris don’t accept India cordially and intrinsically,” he added.
Akbar added that Omar is a pawn in the hands of New Delhi like his contemporaries Mufti Muhammad Sayeed and Ghulam Nabi Azad.
“He is always insecure about New Delhi handing over chair to others. He has tried to be more loyal than the king by giving the statement vis-à-vis China,” Akbar said.
The spokesman also added that Omar should not remain in any misgiving and “when Delhi loses faith in him, neither his statements nor any oath of loyalty would come to his rescue”
“He will be thrown into dust-bin and some other pawn will be brought in the forefront to replace him for safeguarding the interests of India,” he said.
The amalgam also castigated government for using indiscriminate force on Muharram processions saying this amounts to hurting sentiments of Muslims.
