Geelani throws stones, Delhi hurls grenades: Kamaal
JK’s Accession Temporary; Soz-Taj Enacting Drama
KASHMIR NEWS SERVICE
Srinagar, Nov 1: Senior National Conference leader and party’s firebrand spokesman Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal Tuesday dropped a virtual bombshell when he accused New Delhi of hurling grenades in Kashmir.
“If Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani is involved in stone-pelting, New Delhi was subtly involved in hurling grenades so that AFSPA isn’t revoked from the state,” Kamaal said while addressing a public gathering in Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s Ganderbal constituency.
Kamaal had earlier raised a political storm by accusing the Army of orchestrating series of grenade attacks in the Valley on October 25 that followed Chief Minister’s October 21 announcement of partially repealing AFSPA from the state.
In the same breath Kamaal also blamed PDP for creating disturbances in the Valley. “PDP was responsible for Amaranth land row, agitation over Shopian double murder case and unrest in 2010,” he said.
Kamaal also said that the accession of the state with the union of India was temporary. “The accession of J&K with India is temporary according to which only on three things the treaty was signed which include foreign policy, defence and communications. However, after the unfortunate incident of 1953, Prime Minister of J&K was replaced with Chief Minister and President with Governor,” he added.
“To muzzle the voice of Sheikh (Muhammad Abdullah) Sahab New Delhi used all tactics. But they failed as Sheikh Sahab refused to bow before them. He was offered chair of President of India to make the temporary accession of J&K with India final, but the great NC leader declined it,” Kamaal claimed.
He alleged that New Delhi even created wedge in Sheikh family to achieve their ‘petty political interests.’
In another salvo Kamaal revealed that senior Congress leaders Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz and Taj Mohi-ud-Din were enacting drama to sabotage AFSPA revocation from the state.
“Soz and Taj are enacting a premeditated drama to sabotage AFSPA revocation. New Delhi has always been dividing people of the state through such tantrums,” Kamaal said.
Welcoming Home Minister P Chidambaram’s statement on AFSPA, he said, “Time has come when the draconian Act should be revoked from the state.”
Kamaal said some mischievous persons are trying to create confusion in NC and weaken the party. “We will not let it to happen, only if we get united,” he said.
Minister for forests Mian Altaf Ahmad also addressed the gathering.
