Boycott elections: Naqash

SRINAGAR: Senior leader of Hurriyat Conference Jammu and Kashmir and chairman Islamic Political Party Jammu and Kashmir, Mohammad Yousuf Naqash on Sunday urged people to completely boycott elections and pro-India parties including National Conference, PDP, and Congress.
“Our martyrs’ have put on our shoulders the responsibility of realising their sacred mission. Participating in Indian-staged fraud and sham election drama is treason with freedom sentiment and betrayal with the blood of our martyrs’,” Naqash said in a statement here.
He said, “These Indian parties have been tasked to bleed people here and strengthen the forcible occupation of India by propagating and strengthen Indian occupation in Jammu Kashmir. In return they are rewarded (with) power and material benefits. Their hands are soaked in the blood of innocent people. Voting them is to invite more death and destruction here.”
“The unabated oppression by Indian occupation forces is haunting us every time and we can never forget how Indian occupation forces at the behest of India and puppet agents of India are bleeding our people, killing them mercilessly, arresting torturing and detaining them, subjecting them to custodial killings and disappearances and shamelessly violating the chastity of our womenfolk and raising our houses, chattels and business establishments to debris blasting them,” Naqash added.
