NC leader Anil Dhar resigns
Srinagar: Senior National Conference leader Anil Dhar on Monday resigned from the basic membership of the party and all other posts he held. In a resignation letter addressed to NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah, Dhar, who was the vice president Jammu province and member of the Central Working Committee of NC resigned from all the positions held by him in the party “ after being associated with it for 35 years”.
“I regret to point out that the leadership of J&K National Conference has lost interest in the cause of Kashmiri Pandits. This was recently highlighted when the leadership said that the late Shri Jagmohan, the then Governor of J&K was responsible for exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in 1990. This is contrary to the fact that it was Pakistan and its proxies which still continue to be responsible for the migration/exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Valley” Dhar wrote in the letter.
He said various other statements and utterances from the leadership of NC “ do not instill any sense of confidence in the Kashmiri Hindu community…” . “In fact the latest statements of Hon’ble Vice president of the party Mr Omar Abdullah reflect communal overtones and at times give a feeling of his bias against the Hindus” reads the letter. “In view of all this, I have lost faith in the leadership of NC and as such I tender my resignation” reads the letter.
