Srinagar: Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference Sajad Gani Lone Saturday said National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party had always stood against Kashmiris in the Indian Parliament. “It is moral obligation on the elected representatives to articulate the aspirations and grievances their people more effectively in the parliament. Unfortunately for the decades, the parliamentarians of NC and PDP have always stood against the Kashmiris in the Indian Parliament or at times prefer to keep mum and let things happen which are against the people of Kashmir,” Lone said addressing a gathering in Lalpora Lolab in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
“PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Syed justified every atrocity committed on Kashmiris on the floor of parliament as a Home Minister. He defended the Kunan-Poshpora rape case on the floor of the parliament. Omar Abdullah also bought the similar shame to the Kashmiris. He was a Minister in the NDA regime and refused to budge and resign and instead supported the carnage of Muslims in Gujarat. Omar Abdullah justified every atrocity committed on the Kashmiris during his father’s rule in Kashmir, ”Sajjad said.
He said the parliamentarians from the rest of India gaze in disbelief as Kashmiri leaders go against their own people on the floor of the Parliament. “They have never defended the Kashmiris. They never talked about the draconian laws prevailing in Kashmir, in the parliament,” he said.
