Poll boycott writing on wall for New Delhi: Nayeem Khan
Terming the recent poll boycott as "people's verdict and writing on the wall for New Delhi" and state rulers, the Hurriyat Conference (G) senior leader and Jammu Kashmir National Front (NF) chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan today said, "India has planned to revenge the people of Budgam in the garb of re-poll."
"India wants to harm the Kashmiri people economically. After facing befitting reply at the hands of Kashmiri people during recently held shame elections, New Delhi and its local collaborators have decided to revenge the people of Budgam for their courageous resilience and resistance. So New Delhi and its local paid agents have announced a re-poll in the district," Khan, who continues to be under house detention, in a statement today, said.
"New Delhi is trying to create an environment which could hit the local economy so that the freedom loving people of Kashmir are made to surrender. But, this imperialistic tool has already been used against the people of Kashmir time and again and they are familiar with such tactics of oppression and suppression," Khan.
"The recent poll boycott should serve as a message to India and the world that the goal of every Kashmiri is nothing less than the right to self-determination," Khan said.
