Srinagar: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday described opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as an “amalgam of power hungry lot whose track record is sufficient proof of betrayal, opportunism, deception and double-face.”
“Power hungry PDP leadership is known for political somersaulting and making alliances for their convenience,” Omar, according to a statement said while addressing election rallies at Bandipora, Handwara and Pattan in north Kashmir.
“All are aware that on employment front Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Mehbooba Mufti got themselves employed as the Chief Minister of the state and the Member of the Parliament, and instead of giving healing touch to the people, the leadership of PDP gave them killing touch and indulged in highest degree of nepotism, malpractices and misgovernance. So much so that they dislodged the government of their coalition partner for power thrust,” he said.
Omar said that presently PDP leadership is “misleading the masses by carrying the bogus propaganda bogie of ‘badlau’ (change)” in the current election campaign despite the fact that Lok Sabha Election has nothing to do with the election of Chief Minister or the MLAs.
Lambasting Narendra Modi for his alleged anti-Kashmiri campaign and instigating university students against Kashmiri boys and girls seeking education in various universities of India, Omar, who is also Working President of National Conference, described it most unfortunate and an act of highest disregard.
Omar urged the Chief Ministers of all the states to ensure safety of Kashmiri students and debar such politicians to address university students who flair up communal and regional tension and generate hatred against Kashmiri students.
Omar said that Modi and his agents should learn a lesson or two from the Kashmiris about the trait of mutual brotherhood, secularism, love and dignified treatment to the guests.
“The people of Kashmir receive lakhs of visitors and Yatris every year and are extending highest degree of hospitality and love to them”, he said.
