Modi’s visit a ‘futile exercise’: Muslim League

SRINAGAR: Muslim League Jammu Kashmir has termed the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s visit to J&K as “a futile exercise”.

A spokesperson of the League in a statement quoted party’s general secretary M Rafiq Ganaie as terming Modi’s visit as “a futile exercise and wastage of time”.

“These futile exercises won’t change ground reality in any way. India is trying its best to mislead the international community by linking Kashmir dispute with developmental issues,” Ganaie said. “Kashmir issue is not about governance, economic packages or incentives, neither is it a law & order problem. It is a political issue related to human society.”

He said the people of Kashmir are striving for their right to self-determination however New Delhi is neither responding nor honouring their aspirations.

“All rhetoric about development or construction of tunnels, roads, airports etc are futile and won’t succeed to lure us. We have presented unparalleled sacrifices and nourished the movement with pious blood,” he said.

He said the sole aim of this “drama” was to mislead the international community.
