ANANATNAG ,JANUARY, 10,
NC senior leader and former Chief Minister of erstwhile state of J&K, Omar Abdullah Tuesday said GoI had made entire country “fool” on abrogation of Article 370 that the move will end militancy in Jammu and Kashmir. He said instead of curbing militancy, the region is witnessing rise in militant activities post-abrogation of special status of J&K that bellies the claims of normalcy by Narendra Modi led BJP government.
The former CM who was speaking to reporters in southern district Anantnag said on August 5, 2019 the BJP government made deceptive promises to the country over abrogation of Article 370. “Earlier it was said that Article 370 pampered militancy in J&K and if it will be finished the region will get militancy-free and people will heave a sigh of relief. But with the passage of time all these promises and assurances have been proved deceptive. Instead of curbing militancy, there is a huge rise in militant activities in J&K. The claims of normaly being made by BJP government is aimed to make people further fool”, Omar said.
He said whatever claims made by BJP on abrogation of Article 370 and 35(A) were “far from realities”.
“The situation is out of control and uncontainable in J&K currently. Recently many civilians lost their precious lives in Dangri Rajouri attack and many suffered grave injuries. GoI is sending more troops to J&K. If BJP claims all is well then what for more troops are being brought here”, he questioned.
To a query, he replied that election is our right but BJP don’t want conduct of elections in J&K as they are well aware of this fact that people will give them befitting reply. “Election is our constitutional right however we will not beg for this right before New Delhi. We are not beggars. BJP don’t want elections here. They are fond of harassing people. They know if polls are held the elected representatives will come to the side of common people and heal their wounds that inflicted BJP after August 2019 till date”, he said.
