Hurriyat (G) concerned over power crisis
‘Mainstream politicians brokers of JK’s natural resources’
Srinagar, June 23: Expressing serious concern over the prevailing power crisis in J&K, Hurriyat Conference (G) on Saturday characterized all the regional mainstream politicians as “brokers of state’s natural resources.”
“They (mainstream politicians) are gifting away state’s natural resources to New Delhi in full measure in lieu of chairs. Had the state been free and independent, we would utilize our water resources for electricity generation and earn a lot of money besides providing free electricity to our people,” said a spokesman of the Hurriyat (G) in a statement today.
The Hurriyat, at a meeting of its advisory council members held here today with its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani in chair, expressed serious concern over the continued house arrest of Geelani, terming it highly condemnable.
Hurriyat also condemned the government ‘plan’ to seal the residential house of the Peoples’ League chairman Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, warning of “serious consequences” if the police sealed his (Sopori’s) house.
The Hurriyat spokesman alleged that the police together with some of civil administration again raided the house of Sopori on Thursday and asked the family to vacate it by June 25. He said the police action was the “height of political reprisal and it was bereft of any constitutional and moral justification.” He said the Hurriyat leadership would not be cowed down by such ‘repressive’ steps of government.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat has appealed to the international human rights organizations to exert pressure on New Delhi to release all the detainees and stop arresting youth.
Today’s advisory council meeting was attended by all the heads and representatives of Hurriyat constituents including Muslim Khawateen Markaz , Peoples’ League, Tehreek-e-Wahadat-e-Islami, Employees’ Movement, Muslim Conference, Muslim League, Democratic Political Movement, Peoples’ Freedom League and Mass Movement.
