Omar faking confrontation drama with Delhi: Geelani

‘Boycott Forthcoming Elections’


Srinagar, Apr 13: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Saturday said the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was faking confrontation drama with New Delhi.
 “People do well understand that the Omar Abdullah is playing drama of confrontation with centre. Those who are seeking the advice from home ministry just for lifting curfew how can they take an anti-Delhi stand and survive as rulers?  Omar’s theatrical rhetoric against New Delhi is a mutually pre-decided programme,” Geelani said in a statement.
 Geelani urged people to prepare themselves for the boycott of coming elections in the state to express solidarity with the martyrs. “With the elections approaching near, the pro-India politicians in the state have started to show an artificial and stimulated rift and ideological differences with government of India to garner votes from people. Now they are talking of autonomy, return of power projects and other demands and beating the drum of their demand-lists in public. But everyone knows that these so-called demand-lists would vanish after they manage to complete the process of elections in the state with the help of lakhs of armed forces,” said Geelani.
 Geelani alleged the pro-India politicians played a big drama in the state assembly for return of mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru. “One the one hand, they are giving a freehand to the armed forces to use lethal and poisonous substances against peacefully protesting people, one the other hand, they express sympathies with the families of  those murdered by their forces.”
 Geelani said the military concentration near densely populated areas of the Valley had made the life of civilians miserable. He demanded demilitarization of whole Jammu and Kashmir.
 Terming as genuine the Baramulla residents’ demand for removal of army camps, Geelani said, “The deployment of unbridled armed forces in civilian areas is tantamount to anti-human policy.” He assured his full support to demand of Baramulla people for removal of army from the localities. He also hailed the role of the people of north Kashmir in case of late Muhammad Afzal Guru and in the ongoing struggle.
 Geelani termed as eyewash the announcement of investigation by the administration in the ‘unjustified’ killing of a young scholar Tahir Sofi by the army last month. He alleged that the attempts were on to protect the army men involved in the killing of Tahir Sofi under the cover of investigation by the administration.
