Says, Kashmir facing brunt of 1987 rigging needs thorough investigation

Former DFO including two hundred workers from different parties join PC

Sopore July 23: Peoples Conference Sr. Vice President and Former minister Abdul Gani Vakil today said the greed for power between National Conference and PDP is a main reason for the prevailing chaos and insecurity in Kashmir and said these parties can go to any extent for the sake of power. Vakil was addressing the party workers Convention in Zainageer Rafiabad today. While addressing the gathering Vakil reminded people that it was the leadership of NC which brought the laws of POTA and PSA to J&K and "turned the valley into a prison of despair". "NC and PDP leadership at the time of elections always promise heavens to gullible people of Kashmir but once they are trusted back to power, they not only backtrack from their election promises but bring disaster and catastrophe for the people of Kashmir. NC has always promised autonomy but never tried to restore it, PDP always promised Self Rule but never dared to speak about it in power. Instead, history has proved how the dynastic parties collaborated with Delhi in eroding the left out autonomy enjoyed by the erstwhile state".

According to a statement issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Vakil asserted that NC and PDP are the two sides of the same coin and their dynastic rule inflicted only misery on the common people of Kashmir. Holding both these parties responsible for nepotism and deep rooted corruption in state, Vakil said that "it is NC and PDP which institutionalized corruption in state and fixed rates for even class fourth recruitments." Appealing to people not to fall into the trap of this deceptive politics of these two parties, instead it is time to defeat these dynastic parties and throw them out of the political spectrum of J&K.

Vakil also demanded thorough investigation in 1987 election rigging which led to armed rebellion which has consumed hundreds of thousands of lives till now." Mass rigging in 1987 elections, is responsible for both the current sorry state of affairs in the valley and bloodbath. People of J&K deserve to know the truth, Vakil added.

In the convention more than two hundred workers of different parties joined the People's Conference led by retired DFO Mushtaq Ahmad Lone and expressed full faith in the leadership of Sajad Gani Lone and assured party leadership that they will leave no stone un-turned in fighting against the dynastic rule.

Besides others who addressed the convention include Mushtaq Ahmad Lone retired DFO, Bashir Ahmad retired Tehsildar, BDC Chairman Ghulam Mohammad Mir, Sr. PC Leaders Tariq Ahmad Hachepori, Fayaz Ahmad Naikoo, Muzzafar Naikoo, Youth Leaders Tasleema Akhtar, Umar Rashid and several others.(KNS)
