NC has a spoilsport history in Kashmir: Mehbooba

Srinagar, April 08, 2007 (Kashmir Newz Desk) :

Lashing out at the opposition National Conference, ruling coalition partner in Indian administered Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party, today reminded NC of playing spoilsport when New Delhi was holding dialogue with slain Hizbul Mujahideen leader Majid Dar in 2001.

"It is a known fact that, when NC was in power, how it sabotaged every move aimed at including the separatists in the dialogue process," PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said today while addressing a public meeting in north Kashmir's picturesque health resort of Tangmarg, a PDP stronghold.

Mehbooba was apparently irritated with the NC president Omar Abdullah's statement calling upon New Delhi to involve Syed Salahuddin, the chief of United Jehad Council, an amalgam of various militant organisations operating in the state, for talks.

The UJC supremo in turn, for the first time in the state's 17-year's armed insurgency, had reacted in approbation to the statement of a mainstream political leader of the state and lauded Omar for his ideas.

Welcoming, what Mehbooba called NC's change of heart, she said the same party, which went around trumpeting that PDP was advocating a separatist agenda when PDP called for inclusion of Hizbul Mujahideen in the dialogue process, was now vociferously raising the same demand.

The PDP president seemed uncomfortable with Omar Abdullah's statements and also restless thinking that the NC had stolen their agendas.

Mehbooba said that in Jammu or New Delhi, NC leaders join the voices of the Hindu fundamental organisations like the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sang and the Bharatiya Janta Party maligning PDP for raising the issues touching the skin of common masses in the state and once in Srinagar they take a diametrically different line to suit the local environment.

She said NC had no agenda for the people and were now become a piggy-rider of different parties in different regions of the state to suit their interests.

Mehbooba said unlike the NC, PDP had a clear agenda to advocate the cause of people of Jammu and Kashmir and added that it was pursuing the same with unwavering faith, whether it was in power or outside.
