Reacting to National Conference working president Omar Abdullah's speech in New York, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed accused him of "distorting facts on Kashmir dispute."
"Rather talking about rights, aspirations and sufferings of people of J&K, Omar Abdullah has yet again showed his dual face by representing and strengthening India's view point. Omar Abdullah is repeating the same dirty attitude and politics, what NC leadership has been doing right from 1931. All what one could gather from Omar Abdullah's response to his New York speech is that for him in Kashmir accession with India is conditional, in New Delhi Mehbooba Mufti is responsible for all misdeeds and in New York Pakistan is responsible for not implementing UN resolution on J&K. it is ironic that rather telling spade a spade Omar Abdullah strongly projected India's Illogical, unrealistic and misleading view point," Er Rasheed said in a statement.
"He (Omar) has added salt to injuries of Kashmiris by supporting conversion of LoC into permanent border and claiming that Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave Kashmir. What he has been saying and defending in Kashmir, he took complete U-turn in New York. Though it has been the old dirty card NC has played over decades, but Omar Abdullah's true colours should act as an eye opener for those who were under illusion that he has learned some lessons from the past," he said.
"By talking about a solution within Indian constitution, Omar has shown disrespect towards sacrifices of Kashmir and must know that lakhs were not sent to graveyard to find solution within Indian constitution. It would not make Kashmiris a difference whether someone from Sheikh or Mufti dynasty rules as CM or PM as they have already seen fate of Sheikh Abdullah as so-called PM who preferred in 1975 to surrender all that what Omar Abdullah wants to get restored to calm down Kashmiris. Blaming Pakistan for not implementing UN resolutions is biggest lie as just in the recently concluded UN assembly session like successive Prime Ministers, Nawaz Sharif categorically appealed world community to come forward helping in implementing UN resolutions. Does Omar Abdullah mean that Pakistan should vacate Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan without any scheduled mechanism so that India can occupy it?" he asked.
"Omar Abdullah should not show false sympathy with Kashmiris and he must collect courage to stand up in Lal Chowk or else were in Kashmir and tell people all that rubbish what he says in New York. Words like problem, dialogue, stakeholders have lost their meaning and reflect the apologetic and slavish mind set of leaders like Omar Abdullah," he added.
