NC sold self respect for the sake of power: Vakil

Peoples Conference senior vice president Abdul Gani Vakil on Sunday slammed National Conference leadership for what he called their “deceitful politics.”

 Addressing series of public meeting at Janbazpora, Binner and Chaklu Vakil  said how can people expect the fulfilment of promises from those leaders who have been exploiting sentiments of gullible people for decades together. “If Farooq and Omar Abdullah would not have surrendered their authority to Delhi, Congress governments could not have dared to hang Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru.”

Vakil held NC responsible for present uncertainty and said, “National Conference sold its self respect for the sake of power time and again. Projecting themselves as the sole custodians of states special status now will fetch them nothing as people know how at so many occasions Congress humiliated them. Isn’t it the fact that Congress put Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah behind bars and then installed him as chief minister and later on withdrew their support from NC government also.”

He said, “The leaders who could not save their self respect and self esteem are now projecting themselves as the lone saviours of honor and dignity of the people of Kashmir which is quite strange.”

Vakil appealed people to strengthen Peoples Conference because it is the only party which has the strong leadership to fight the duplicity of NC and PDP leadership. He asked people to defeat these parties in ongoing elections. Senior Leader Khurshid Ahmad Khan, Javaid Masoodi and Umar Rashid also spoke on the occasion.
