Says by claiming NC has not asked people to boycott polls, party stands exposed
Terming Omer Abdullah’s statement that NC has not asked people to boycott upcoming Municipal and Panchayat Polls as unfortunate and disgusting, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that NC has yet again changed its colors and all those who participated in the All party meeting convened by Farooq Abdullah should clear their stand whether they subscribe to the views of Omer Abdullah or not.
In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “From Omer Abdullah’s statement that party has not asked people to boycott, it is obvious that NC is misleading people, trying to keep New Delhi in good humor but at the same time befooling Kashmiris and stabbing them yet again. It seems that whatsoever NC has been doing vis-à-vis these polls is a well crafted strategy and a drama aimed to make Panchayat and Municipal elections a success and at the same time to create an impression that NC stands with the sentiments and aspirations of people of J&K.
First by rejecting the electoral process NC tried to create sensationalism and diverted attention from the huge damage caused to the party as a result of Farooq Abdullah chanting “Bharat Maata Ki Jai”slogans publically and now is taking a u-turn to bailout New Delhi.
However Omer Abdullah needs to be reminded that Kashmiris are mature enough to understand the duplicity and the politics of exploitation NC has yet again tried to play with the Kashmiris”.
Er. Rasheed said that claiming to have boycotted elections but asking masses not to boycott is like claiming to not use a prohibited drug but not objecting if the rest of the family uses the same.
Er. Rasheed advised Omer Abdullah to show some respect towards the sentiments of Kashmiri people and appealed other parties who participated in the all party meet to come clean over the issue.
