Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference led by Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani asked Kashmiri Pandits to oppose the planned “townships” for them.
Holding CM Mehbooba Mufti responsible for “RSS’ anti-Kashmir plans”, Geelani said that the APHC-g will not allow an “Sainik Colony” in Kashmir.
APHC-g held its advisory council (Majlis-i-Shoora) meet at Hyderpora in which was addressed by ailing Geelani, a statement issued by the Hurriyat amalgam.
The meeting thoroughly discussed the proposals of the “Sainik Colonies”, separate Townships for Kashmiri Pandits, induction of the New Industrial Policy and announcement of medical colleges after the Supreme Court decision on NEET and to counter these dangerous plans, the executive body also discussed the future strategies in this regard.
While summing-up the suggestions and views of members of the advisory council, Geelani in his presidential address said, “India is working on different plans to strengthen and prolong its forced and illegal occupation in Jammu & Kashmir and the inception of the new BJP-PDP coalition government has accelerated the implementation of these plans and the communal forces are using the government machinery for the implementation of the RSS agenda.”
“Mehbooba Mufti Ji and her party (PDP) are extending their every help and cooperation in the execution of these communal agendas and she has sold the collective interests and the identity of the Kashmiri nation for the chair,” the octogenarian Hurriyat leader said.
Geelani said that the recent statements of the right wing Hindu nationalist BJP leaders regarding “Sainik Colony” “have proven that Mehbooba Mufti, her cabinet ministers and some officials of the civil administration are lying over this issue and are keeping the people in dark”.
“The circumstantial evidences indicate that Ms Mehbooba Mufti and the Bhajpa had already entered into some agreement with regard to the establishment of the Sainik Colony and this deal had deliberately been kept hidden from the general public,” the ailing leader claimed.
On the issue of separate townships for the Kashmiri Pandits, Geelani reiterated his part stand that “no Kashmiri is opposing or is against the return of the Pandits to Valley”.
The Hurriyat Conference (g) Chairperson said, “India wants to weaken the special status of the Kashmir in every possible way and want to convert the Muslim majority into minorities here. This country wants to settle non-state subjects in the Jammu & Kashmir on different names and schemes and wants to snatch the livelihood of the Kashmiri traders and businessmen. For this purpose the RSS backed government has formulated a new industrial policy which will open the doors for the Indian industrialists in the state.”
Terming the announcement of the new medical colleges in the state as “Lollipopí”, Geelani said, “these colleges will admit non-local students and they will be like the NIT Srinagar.”
“We will not let the RSS and the Sangh Parivar to succeed in their evil designs in Kashmir and the Kashmiri people will resist them in every possible way,” he asserted.
