Geelani urges people to boycott April 18 elections, observe shutdown in poll-bound areas
Srinagar;Hurriyat (g) Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Tuesday urged people for a complete election boycott and shut down on April 18 in poll-bound areas of Srinagar, Budgam and Ganderbal.
The spokesman in a statement said that on one hand ruthless killings, unabated arrest spree, economic strangulation, vehicular restriction, is on its peak and on another a vast military exercise under the veil of election is being thrusted on this helpless nation just to endorse their brutal control.
He said that all pro-Indian parties and their leaders are least bothered about the miseries of the people, they, instead, are desperate to get to the power corridors to continue sucking our blood.
We are passing through crucial period of our struggle, it is a litmus test for our conscious, morality and commitment to the movement just like we did during 2017 Parliament election in Srinagar, Budgam and Ganderbal districts.
He said that we have invested mighty human material and every person, family and region has its own contribution which legalizes and compels the stakeholders not to let these precious sacrifices go waste.
He said that parties and its politicians are befooling the people with the promises, they themselves sold for their family gains. They are political vultures and greedy leeches who have always thrived on the blood and honour of this brutalized nation.
Pro-freedom leader said that they political parties are the main architects of all our miseries. Shedding crocodile tears on 35-A, 370, AFSPA, PSA or riding a deceitful slogan of change, all of them sail in the same boat and have contributed in turning this paradise in hell.
