Tanvir cautions about attack on special status; says PDP a party to RSS plan
SRINAGAR: Political secretary to National Conference (NC) president, Tanvir Sadiq, on Sunday said that the PDP and BJP were “hell bent to attack our special status and it becomes a duty of every state subject to rise to the occasion and protect it”.
Stressing the need to end curfew culture in Srinagar city, Tanvir said, ”Sher-e-Khas has borne the brunt of curfews and crackdowns, business has suffered tremendously. This needs to stop.”
“Srinagar witnessed curfew-like restrictions on most occasions this year”, he said, adding that the city “has been ailing with many problems that need to be cured.” He said the people of the downtown should not suffer for PDP’s mishandling of the situation.
Tanvir was on tour to various areas of Zadibal, Lalbazar, Kralpora, Khousalsar and Alamgiri Bazar as an outreach to spread awareness about the disastrous repercussions of any misadventure on Article 35-A, a statement issued by National Conference said.
Tanvir said, “It is an attack on kashmiriyat and on the composite culture of this state.”
Our leader Omar Abdullah repeatedly warned Mehbooba Mufti both inside and outside the State Assembly, about BJP’s plan to launch a judicial assault on Article 35-A through proxies of RSS. But today it is evident that PDP is a party to this plan.”
He said nothing different could be expected from PDP, when “they are the ones who bought RSS to Kashmir and helped them in their agenda”. Sadiq said that for power, PDP had “sold their conscience”, adding that “only NC along with the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh can protect the special status”.
Tanvir said, “National Conference will not hesitate to protest in every nook and corner of the state if the PDP-BJP Government continues with its nefarious plan to attack the State’s Special Status.”
