Srinagar: National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Friday paid obeisance and offered Friday prayers at Dargah Hazratbal in Srinagar and said this election was a test of our integrity as a people. Speaking to supporters after offering prayers at Hazratbal, Dr. Farooq Abdullah expressed concern over the situation that has arisen due to inclement weather and said the administration should take all necessary precautionary measures to ensure there is no damage to property and are lives are safeguarded.
Dr. Farooq Abdullah said the upcoming parliamentary polls in the State would test the integrity and resolve of the people in ridding the State of the opportunistic and unjust PDP-BJP alliance which has devoured our youth and alienated the people like never before. “This election is not between National Conference and PDP but between the people of Kashmir and those who want to rule this State from Nagpur and New Delhi. PDP is just a local affiliate of the RSS and is here to do their work. By winning this battle against the two candidates fielded by the BJP and PDP, the people will demonstrate that their conscience is paramount and they cannot be divided into fragments to be weakened and suppressed”, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said.
