NC wants Mehbooba to resign
Srinagar: National Conferece in a statement on Tuesday said that Mehbooba Mufti should stop trying to fool people of Kashmir and should resign without any further dramas. NC spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu said, ”Mehbooba Mufti should listen to the call of her conscience and resign if she has any dignity left. “These scatted, second-rung voices being propped up to diffuse the level of anger against the PDP won’t feel the people anymore. PDP remains as desperate to be in this evil, nihilistic and opportunistic alliance with the BJP as it was on the first day of their coming to power through deceit and treachery. Mehbooba Mufti should shun these games and charades and resign if she has any dignity left”.
“The BJP-led Central Government has categorically – even in front of the Supreme Court – refused to initiate talks with the stakeholders in Kashmir either now or at any time in the future. The Union Power Minister categorically and directly turned down the demand of the Mehbooba Government to return certain power projects to the State. The Central Government has refused to even consider, leave alone formally discuss the revocation of AFSPA from J&K. These are the very alleged cornerstones of the PDP-BJP ‘Agenda of the Alliance’. When the ‘Agenda’ has been abandoned such brazenly, why is Mehbooba Mufti still in an alliance with the BJP other than her self-seeking, purely personal goal to be in the Chief Minister’s chair?”, the NC State Spokesperson said in the statement.
The NC Spokesperson said the PDP-BJP Alliance had brought the State on the verge of complete chaos and turmoil as the situation was now – in a lot of ways – worse than the most tumultuous years of armed turmoil and militancy. “An election has been cancelled after being aborted earlier to save the Chief Minister’s brother from imminent and embarrassing defeat. The turnout in the other election was dismal and unprecedented. Civilian protestors are being mowed down by the security forces in violation of all mandated SOPs as there are unofficial orders of ‘shoot-to-kill’. In the light of these circumstances and backdrop, the continuation of the PDP-BJP Alliance is detrimental to the very survival of electoral democracy in the State”, the NC Spokesperson added.
