He said it was most unfortunate that the democratic and constitutional rights of the people of jammu and kashmir were being trampled with impunity each passing day . He said continued witch hunting against political leaders of Jammu and Kashmir including Dr Farooq Abdullah was deplorable.He described the use of central agencies like Enforcement Directorate (ED) and National Investigation Agency (NIA) to settle scores with opposition political parties was darkest period of democracy in the country.
