J&K Democratic Liberation Party (DLP) Hashim Qureshi today expressed resentment over the recent statements of National Conference patron Dr Farooq Abdullah.
"NC has perhaps forgotten that it was responsible for the killing of 127 youth during 2010. Today, whosoever is arrested under PSA and other black laws, its responsibility lies with the NC only. Today on even election for parliament seats and panchayats in Srinagar and Anantnag, Farooq Abdullah and NC are exuding their rhetoric of sympathy with the people of Kashmir. In 1974, Farooq Abdullah had made allegiance to Maqbool Bhat for joining the freedom struggle in Kashmir. But after becoming the Chief Minister of J&K he got Maqbool Bhat executed," Hashim said.
"If Farooq Abdullah was sincere in his conviction for the freedom of Jammu and Kashmir, he should tender apology to the soul of Maqbool Bhat and should also apologize to the followers of Maqbool Bhat. He should direct all elected members of NC to the Legislative Assembly to submit their resignation and apologize to the people and make a commitment that they will not participate in elections until Jammu and Kashmir is liberated," he said.
