Interlocutor Sharma has come to waste our time: Vakil

Asks Mehbooba to reopen corruption cases against sitting Ministers, MLAs


Srinagar, Nov 08 (KNS): Terming the appointment of Interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma as a “waste of time”, President J&K Bacho Tehreek and former minister Abdul Gani Vakil Wednesday said Hurriyat, Pakistan and India are the people who need to sit and solve Kashmir issue.
Vakil said the interlocutor Sharma is “wasting his own time and has come to waste of others in Kashmir”.
“A serious dialogue process needs to be started. Such appointment of interlocutors who come and meet everyone here is wasting time,” he said.
In a press statement issued here, Vakil, who recently floated a new party "J&K Bachao Tehreek”, sought probe into the assets of both sitting and former MLAs and MLCs and ministers against cases of corruption pending for disposal in several investigation agencies of the state government?
He also reiterated his commitment to fight against dynasty politics of the mainstream political parties in the state.
Addressing a one day party convocation at Town Hall Kupwara, Vakil said some people of disintegrating tendencies are hell bent upon to create a wedge between the people of the three regions and people of different religions in the state but his party will fight tooth and nail such disruptive forces and foil their nefarious designs.
Hitting out at both the central and state governments for applying discriminatory yardstick in crusade against corruption Vakil said if National Investigative Agency (NIA) and Enforcement Directorate are probing charges against separatist leaders and put them behind bars then why Mehbooba Government in Jammu & Kashmir is not reopening the corruption cases of both sitting and former MLAs, MLCs and ministers to show equal treatment to both mainstream and separatist leaders in crusade against corruption.
He alleged the even some incumbent ministers holding key portfolios and legislators are amassing wealth.
Reiterating that dynasty politics mainly propagated by mainstream political parties particularly National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the mother of all ills, Vakil asked Farooq Abdullah that why he himself and his son Omar Abdullah were silent over autonomy when they were ministers in the central government and dared Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti that whey she did not utter a single word over her party's demand for "Self Rule" when she was Member Parliament and currently as Chief Minister of the State.
