Mubarak Gul reacts to Rattanpuri’s ‘tirade’
‘He Is A Failed Parliamentarian, Rootless Politician’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Nov 29: Advisor to the Chief Minister and National Conference senior leader Mubarak Gul has sharply reacted to the tirade of MP Ghulam Nabi Rattanpuri against some leaders in the party.
“Ghulam Nabi Rattanpuri is allowing his frustration to get the better of him. It is unfortunate that Rattanpuri who was till the other day a small time broadcaster with the Radio Kashmir could not digest his elevation to the Rajya Sabha and having failed to perform his duties as a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament has lost his balance and is making absurd, frivolous baseless statements which are figment of his imagination and bereft of facts,” Gul said in a statement.
Gul said it is sad that Rattanpuri is targeting Omar Abdullah, ‘the man who was instrumental in carving a place for him in the political spectrum of the state by first giving him mandate to contest the state assembly elections in 2008 where he secured only 3246 votes and finished third and then nominating him to Rajya Sabha.’
Gul said it is Rattanpuri who is disgruntled and not the party because even the District Pulwama which he represents, he is not been able to create any base for himself despite being a Member of Parliament for over two years. He said Rattanpuri is a failed parliamentarian and a rootless politician like Rattanpuri should not have the audacity to comment upon the performance of other political entities.
“If Rattanpuri had the courage of conviction he should test his strength in the court of the people, let alone contesting a election he is incapable of even organizing a road side public meeting,” Gul said, challenging Rattanpuri to organize a public meeting to test his track record as a Member of Parliament and his contribution to his own area.
Gul said, “As a senior leader and elder brother I advise Ghulam Nabi Rattanpuri that if he wants to succeed in public life he should stop hiding behind wild and frivolous allegations and start to let his work speak for himself, so far the sound of his work has been ominously silent.”
Gul said before asking other people to explain their track record he should convince the party leadership of his own role and contribution which it is nothing but a disappointment.
Gul further said, “It is tragic that somebody like Ghulam Nabi Rattanpuri who professes to be educated and belongs to a party like National Conference with strong roots in all parts of the state, would try and play such regional politics which does not behoove a Rajya Sabha Member.”
