Srinagar: Chairman People’s Conference Sajad Lone said on Saturday that dynastic political parties such as National Conference and People’s Democratic Party remember Kashmir dispute at the time of elections only, a statement issued by the party said.
“At the time of elections both Abdullahs and Muftis claim they will resolve Kashmir issue and seek votes on this. They have been claiming it for decades. But once in power they forget everything and remember only one thing to loot the public exchequer,” Lone told an election meeting in Langate, Kupwara.
“People of Kashmir have a right to ask them what they have done for them in the past six decades except deceiving them. This time leadership of both NC and PDP are blaming each other for the miseries of Kashmiris. The fact is that these two families have ruled for decades and they have to answer of the miseries of Kashmir. For the lust of power Abdullahs and Muftis have always compromised with the interests of Kashmiris,” the statement quoted Lone as saying.
The statement said that expressing surprise over the statements of NC and PDP that they will safeguard the interests of Kashmiris and won’t allow anybody to abrogate Article 370, Lone asked, “I want to ask both these parties who are responsible for eroding the core content of Article 370. Let people check the history and see who is responsible for eroding Article 370. By shedding crocodile tears now, they can’t befool Kashmiris who have understood their deceit. Muftis and Abdullahs were always at the forefront of to compromise the interests of Kashmiris.”
