Srinagar, Nov 1: Union Minister and President National Conference Dr Farooq Abdullah Thursday said that media has not found any road constructed en route Amarnath Cave.
Lashing at leaders who, he said, were hoodwinking the people with emotive slogans and false information about Amarnath route, Dr Farooq said, “They are lying to the people. The entire media had an aerial tour and have taken a firsthand look at the route and not found a single road being constructed anywhere. Where do they get this false information from?”
Farooq was interacting with media persons on the sidelines of a function at Nagbal, Gulabagh, on the outskirts of Srinagar.
“It proves they want to destabilize the social fabric of the State by inciting people,” he added. “Poor people in Pahalgam and Sonamarg earn their living when yatris perform darshan. I don’t understand why these leaders are hell bent to take away their livelihood,” Farooq said.
“Kashmir is a Peer Vaer and everyone has lived here in communal harmony, no one has the right to disturb the social fabric,” Farooq said.
“Kashmir is a place of Sufis and saints. It is a necklace with pearls of different religious beliefs. We will not allow anyone to dilute Kashmiriyat,” he added.
Admitting that LPG crisis is a huge problem in the State keeping in view the harsh climatic conditions, the NC President said, “People in other Indian States can buy a gas cylinder at Rs 800 but J&K should be considered as a special case given the harsh weather it faces during winters. The people of J&K should be given more cylinders keeping in view the acute cold conditions. The Omar Abdullah Government and our Ministers have requested the Prime Minister and also the Union Petroleum Minister to increase the cap for our State and we are hopeful for a positive outcome soon.”
