Mufti, Shah exposed on power trade-off: NC
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 6: Mubarak Gul, Advisor to the Chief Minister, in a statement issued here has said that the revelation that the state’s rights over Salal Hydro Electric Project were surrendered in 1985 is an eye opener.
“Mufti Muhammad Sayeed who has been clamouring for the rights of the people and has been blaming the National Conference for the trade-off of the water resources needs to explain his conduct. In 1985 the state was ruled by GM Shah of the Awami National Conference and supported by Congress whose (state) president was Mufti Muhammad Sayeed,” he said.
Gul said it is unfortunate that while Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah Sahib got a very good deal from the Union Government for Salal Project the benefits of the deal were simply surrendered in 1985 with the active support of Mufti.
“The people of Kashmir have not forgotten the midnight murder of democracy at the hands of a pliable Governor orchestered by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed and his cohorts to ensure the removal of Farooq Abdullah who at that point of time refused to bend before the forces who wanted him to take certain decisions which the National Conference felt were not in the best interest of the people of Jammu & Kashmir”, he said.
Gul said the Salal’s trade-off of 1985 is another glaring example of double speak and deceit of the Muftis who have made it their habit to perpetuate lies and concocted stories to hoodwink the people of the state little realizing that the people of the state can see through their designs.
Chief Minister’s Advisor said Mufti Muhammad Sayeed who is today trying to become a champion and custodian of the rights of the people of the state to harness the water resources should have in 1985 not allowed this trade-off to happen and if he could not resist such an action of the state government he should have come up in the open at that juncture and withdrawn support to that government. Gul asked why Mufti was a silent spectator to all this. He questioned as to where Mufti’s conscious was then and where was his conscientiousness and pain for the welfare of the people of the state when the agreement to trade-off Salal was signed.
