Jammu: National Conference was responsible for suppressing Jamaat-e-Islami in the 70s and rigging assembly polls in 1987, PDP legislator from Wachi Aijaz Mir said.
“Both these historical incidents perpetrated by the NC set the state on or fire and today we are in this mess because of them,” Mir said, echoing his party leader and chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.
However, he blamed all (pro-India) parties and resistance groups for “messing up Kashmir situation”, asking them to come together and “douse the fire”.
“How did Burhan become a militant? Who is responsible? We all are responsible, whether Hurriyat, PDP, BJP, NC and Congress,” he said.
“I was in depression during the unrest as I wanted to work for my people who have elected me but this cycle of violence did not let it happen. We should talk with Huriyat to solve this lingering problem,” he said.
