Terming the statement of BJP leader and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari as “ridiculous” and “hypocritical”, Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani lashed out Delhi leadership for lacking political vision and courage to accept the ground realities in Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement Tuesday Geelani said that creating a venomous and war like atmosphere on flimsy and baseless issues to lure the electorate and grab the political power is a curse and a part of filthy politics which has ruined the very ethics of democracy and moral values.
Referring to Gadkari’s statement Hurriyat chairman said that irrespective of absolute majority in the outgoing Parliament of India, the BJP leaders referred to the sensitive situation in Jammu and Kashmir as a main stumbling block in the way of abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A.
Terming these lame excuses as “silly political postures” the veteran Hurriyat leader asked when was conducive atmosphere available for India on the ground floor of Jammu and Kashmir since 27th of October 1947?
Hurriyat chairman while citing the historical facts reminded that it was the same sensitive situation which India put forth as pretence to defer the plebiscite before the UN and pledged to implement it as and when the situation is conducive.
Advising to refrain from making Kashmir as an election stunt, the pro-freedom leader said these “deceitful tactics” have failed to dilute the pro-freedom sentiments of the people of Kashmir.
