Omar blames Indian government for Kashmir Unrest; fields Pak
SRINAGAR: Ex Jammu and Kashmir Chief minister has again incited peers with his hateful speech against Indian government. The father-son duo have been induldging in maligning Indian government’s stance and fielding for Pakistan in one way or the other
This time Omar has said that the cause of Kashmir unrest in not Pakistan but India. “The unrest in Kashmir cannot be blamed on Pakistan as it was a result of “mistakes” made by the government of not engaging with the people of the state.”
“Do not be under this false impression that the fire you see in Kashmir has been ignited by Pakistan.
“It is a result of our mistakes,” Omar said addressing a function of his National Conference in Baramulla.
“To blame Pakistan alone for the political situation or the current unrest in the Valley is a distortion of the truth.
“The people of J&K have espoused a political sentiment even when there was no external interference and this political sentiment forms the basis of the State’s special status that has since been eroded by extra-constitutional machinations,” Omar said.
He said the political issue in Kashmir is a result of “historic blunders and broken promises by successive dispensations” in New Delhi.
“The situation today stands compounded because of the present Central Government’s refusal to even acknowledge that a problem exists in Kashmir,” Omar said.
The National conference president has acccused PDP led government for not being able to live up to the expectations of people. He said that while the parties coalition with BJP is historic,PDP has been a great disappointment when it came to concealing party’s brazen abandonment of its own ideology and vision document in a bargain to attain power.
“Her theatrical performances as an opposition leader might have served her well but when people compare her present avatar to her previous posturing she stands exposed.
“Every single promise made by the PDP to seek votes in the previous elections has been broken with utter contempt shown towards the people of the State,” he added.
Omar alleged that the PDP-BJP Alliance has “wreaked havoc” with the State.
“The Government has ceased to exist on the ground and its mere presence is exhibited solely through indiscriminate arrests and imposition of Public Safety Acts against the youth.
The loss of nearly a hundred innocent young lives in the current unrest and the unimaginable and indiscriminate repression of our youth has been the most noticeable hallmark of the PDP-BJP alliance and Mehbooba Mufti s refusal to acknowledge her failure has only compounded the misery of the people,” he said.
