Sajad blames separatists for messing up Kashmir
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Srinagar, Feb 27: Blaming separatists for keeping the Kashmir pot boiling, People’s Conference chairman Sajad Gani Lone Sunday said as long as separatists exist, Kashmir will never secede (from India).
Lone, who unsuccessfully contested the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, also attacked the mainstream politicians said saying; “As long as they (mainstream) parties exist, Kashmir will never accede (to India)”.
Lone was expressing his views on “India’s K-puzzle” on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
While Lone dissociated himself from the separatist camp by jumping into electoral politics in 2009, he has been maintaining that it was only a change of strategy in order to take the “voice of Kashmir into the Indian Parliament”.
His elder brother, Bilal Gani Lone, is part of moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
They also head two factions of People’s Conference founded by their father, Abdul Gani Lone, who was killed by militants in 2002 for opposing the presence of foreign ultras in the state.
