Srinagar: Urging National Conference leadership to show consistency, MLA Langate Shekh Abdul Rasheed has welcomed NC president Farooq Abdullah’s stand on Article 35-A, but asked him not to repeat the “suspicious and inconsistent role National Conference played since 1975”.
In a statement issued here, Rasheed said that the two main regional parties would be held responsible for erosion of the autonomy, special status and dilution of Kashmir cause.
“May Farooq Abdullah and his party explain what happened to the resettlement bill passed by the state assembly but was still dragged to Supreme Court and for the want of proper pleading it is now story of the past. Recently when PDP succumbed to BJP’s ego and ideology by thrusting GST on Jammu & Kashmir, NC played the most dubious role by keeping mum over the issue and not taking it to the public domain,” Rasheed said.
“NC being the oldest political party cannot run away by simply playing with the words but has to own the responsibility for the major erosions which have taken place all these decades. The records will reveal that either Farooq Sahab has changed his statements after regular intervals or Omar Abdullah has claimed that Farooq Sahab was misquoted, thus the party has ruined its credibility and helped New Delhi in maintaining the status-quo on political dispute”.
Rasheed expressed surprise over Farooq Abdullah’s comments that Central Govt. should find how money was pumped to weaken National Conference.
“Why doesn’t Farooq Abdullah disclose all that what he wants New Delhi to reveal”.
