Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday said the National Conference was fooling people by raising slogans of autonomy.
Hurriyat (G) termed the advocacy of the JK’s autonomy and dialogues with Pakistan by the National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omer Abdullah as their vote-bank politics and said the NC remembers autonomy whenever it is out of power.
“They (NC) suddenly start to remember the state’s autonomy and the betrayal of India and also start to talk about the friendship with Pakistan and the resolution of Kashmir but when they are in the government, they not only hate to talk about the word “autonomy” but Farooq Abdullah also suggested India to attack Azad Kashmir and occupy that region too,” a Hurriyat (G) spokesperson said in a statement issued here.
He said this kind of politics had now become outdated and barring some of its party activists nobody else is taking them seriously.
“Had they been a bit sincere and honest in their claims with regarding to the JK’s autonomy, it would have got restored a long time ago. National Conference was once enjoying a two-third majority in the state assembly. They could have passed a simple bill and would have restored the autonomy of the state but they didn’t do that because their first and last goal was power and chair and for that they would never agree to take any risk,” the spokesman said.
He said by raising these slogans NC wants to befool the people of the state.
