Srinagar: National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Sunday said that PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti as Chief Minister behaved as the Chief tormentor of Kashmiris and left no stone unturned to persecute the people of the State politically and economically.
“There are no buyers for Mehbooba Mufti’s crocodile tears in Kashmir and her new theatrical drama was aimed at covering her disastrous, unjust and corrupt tenure,” Dr Farooq said.
He was addressing party workers in Srinagar.
“Mehbooba Mufti’s latest theatrical performance amounts to adding insult to injury. Her crocodile tears have no takers in Kashmir. The people remember clearly how she clung on to power despite being sidelined and humiliated by her allies repeatedly over the course of the last four years and how she surrendered every aspect of the institution of the CM’s office to the BJP. The youth of the State witnessed an unprecedented reign of persecution and harassment under her rule and her party went above and beyond the call of their duty to the BJP in helping them inflict irreparable damage on the State’s autonomy and special status,” Dr Farooq Abdullah said.
“Where were Mehbooba Mufti’s tears when young children were being blinded by pellets? At that time we saw a different face of Mehbooba Mufti and the PDP – a face of arrogance, ruthlessness, and sadism.
Dr Farooq Abdullah said PDP was a party that was foisted on the people through clandestine and covert machinations to fragment the voice of the people. “PDP was, is and will remain a Trojan Horse that has been engineered within J&K to weaken the State internally and to launch an assault on our resolve to fight for J&K’s political dignity and rights. No amount of drama can change this reality. The people of the State have realised how PDP has taken the State back into turmoil, uncertainty, and disempowerment,” the NC President further said.
