PDP facilitating promotion of rightwing agenda: Geelani

Srinagar: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Monday termed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as “stooges” of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for “facilitating and promoting their fascist designs”.
In a statement he said, “People in Jammu and Kashmir have no confusion regarding the secret agenda between BJP and RSS,” and added that “the PDP as local stooges are facilitating and promoting their fascist designs”.
Lashing out at the coalition partners, Geelani said that “executing the secret deal promulgated by BJP and RSS is a very sensitive and serious issue as PDP is being portrayed as plausible while actually under a well thought-out plan; their national agenda is on the cards.”
Terming this as “their Chankaiyan tactics”, Geelani said that “undermining the core realities will prove disastrous”.
Geelani said that the “complete integration of state with union is their [their BJP’s] national agenda”.
“We have no misconception about their agenda. However it is local stooges that are being utilised to implement [it], and PDP is playing the key role,” Geelani said.
Geelani said that people need to be cautious. “For [their own] mean interests, these shameless elements are bartering to get into power corridors and under the disguise of so-called development, they even agreed to doing away with the Muslim-majority status of state.”
Geelani emphasised the need for “strengthening right to self-determination movement at all levels”, saying that “despite their political pressure and military power, our peaceful political struggle can’t be sacked. However local pro-Indian political parties can prove more venomous and dangerous than enemies.”
While referring to Dusshera statement of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and of deputy chief minister, Geelani said that “their assertion about the complete integration of the state with the Indian union serves as an eye-opener for the puppet chief minister, while he called on people to “stand firm with the cause and stay away from all these pro-Indian parties”.
Reacting to the continuous braid-chopping incidents, Geelani said that “culprits were roaming free despite the presence of the armed forces, the CRPF, BSF, STF and police personnel”.
Condemning the statement of the DG Police, raising a finger at the resistance quarters, Geelani said that it was like the “pot calling the kettle black’’ and was a deliberate attempt to cover their failure.
