The National Conference on Saturday slammed the PDP leadership for "putting J&K in a state of confusion", saying "the PDP's posturing is nothing but political gimmickry".
"It is up to Mehbooba Mufti to either accept her father's legacy by siding with the right wing BJP or reject it by walking out of the alliance. She is doing neither", said NC General Secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar while speaking at a meeting here today.
The meeting, as per a statement, was attended by party Additional General Secretary Dr Mustafa Kamal, Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, Zone Presidents including MLA Mohammad Akbar Lone (North), MLC Ali Mohammad Dar (Central), District Presidents Kashmir Province, MLA Hom Shalibugh Ab Majeed Bhat, MLC Showkat Ganai, MLC Qaiser Jamsheed Lone and Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar.
"PDP came into being after central government pooled in money and made Mufti Sahab come up with a party. After becoming the CM in 2015, it was Mufti Sahab who went ahead and called PM Narendra Modi the best PM India has ever had. Now Mehbooba Mufti wants us to believe that PDP's alliance with BJP was a mistake when it was she who garlanded Amit shah and other BJP leaders when PDP-BJP government came into being 10 months back," Sagar said adding, "I fail to understand why she never talked about this when we offered them unconditional support, a year back."
Calling late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed a "dream merchant" Dr Mustafa Kamal said, "At every public gathering Mufti would sing songs about how tourism sector will flourish under him but not a step was taken," adding, "PDP-BJP government's biggest achievement in these ten months was inauguration of projects carried out by the previous government."
