JAMMU: Ruling National Conference (NC) Saturday alleged that opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) had decided to act as the “State Wing of a Modi-led BJP in 2014.”
“PDP is free to align with even the RSS or the VHP since they have a democratic right to forge alliances without worrying about the sentiments of the people they tragically and falsely claim to represent,” NC spokesman Junaid Mattu said in a statement.
Alleging that PDP was established by the BJP to weaken, fragment and bifurcate the voice and representation of the people of J&K, Mattu said Mufti was now trying to “repay the favour of 1999 in 2014.”
“While gauging the reverential statements of praise for Modi that have come from Mehbooba Mufti and Muzaffar Baig, it’s evident beyond doubt that PDP has now decided to act as the State Wing of a Modi-led BJP in 2014,” he said.
Mattu said while NC worked hard and succeeded in effecting a historic ceasefire in 1996 and started dialogue with Hizbul Mujahidin in the most crucial and tumultuous phase of political turmoil in the Valley, most of the militant commanders who came forward to talk were targeted and killed during the government of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
