Congress,NC,PDP a headache for Kashmiris:Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 25: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani Sunday termed the proposed alliance between Congress and National Conference as a “headache and root cause of all problems that Kashmiris face.”
“The parties with hand and plough as election symbols have always been a trouble for Kashmiris. The combination of plough and hand has already proved a malignant headache for the State and is a main cause of political instability in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said in a statement here. “The party with plough as symbol has held the hand of Congress only for power and together the two parties have suppressed the aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Geelani also accused the Peoples Democratic Party Patron Mufti Muhammad Sayed of playing deceptive politics. “For the past 50 years, he served his masters in Delhi and now agencies and policy makers in Delhi have assigned him a new role. Sarpanchs and Panchs should remember that these pro-India parties are different faces of the same coin. The motive of pro-India leaders is only to serve their masters and to legitimize the control of India on Kashmir,” Geelani said.
Holding ruling National Conference-Congress and opposition Peoples Democratic Party “equally responsible” for their detrimental role in the freedom struggle, Geelani renewed his poll boycott call for the LC polls slated to be held on December 3. “All these parties have done harm to the Kashmir cause. The ideology of these parties is same. There are power hungry with the only aim is to get it by hook or crook,” he said.
Geelani also asked the Panches and Sarpanches to refrain from participating in proposed LC polls. “People have laid their lives for a noble cause and now it is our duty to take care of their sacrifices,” he said. “If someone will try to harm their sacrifices, he will not only do harm to himself, but also carry the tag of a traitor,” Geelani said.
