Rise to occasion to ostracize BJP, PDP: Mir
Srinagar: Maintaining that PDP-BJP unholy alliance was a “big cause of alienation among the people in the State, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G A Mir appealed the people to rise to the occasion to defeat these parties and to “ostracize” them.
He said these parties had “always exploited common masses for the sake of electoral gains and to grab power”.
Mir was addressing elections rallies in Lolab, Tangdhar and Sumbal in Kupwara and Bandipora districts in North Kashmir. He was accompanied by Senior Party Leaders Haji Abdul Rashid Dar, Gulam Nabi Monga, Usman Majeed, Mohd Muzaffar Parray, Haji Farooq Mir (INC Candidate), Imtiyaz Parray, Irshad Ahmad Wani and others.
Mir also cautioned the people about the “political gimmicks of PDP and BJP sponsored-parties in the valley, saying that “only Congress party can unite and safeguard the interests of people in all the three regions of the State”.
Mir hit out at BJP and PDP for “exploiting people for the sake of votes” and reminded the people about the designs of both PDP and BJP, who as per him, “compromised on their mandate after coming into power”.
“All the promises made by them have fallen flat, now they are again trying to mislead people by raking up sensitive issues concerning Jammu and Kashmir State,” he said.
Mir said the recently released manifesto of BJP was “based on the lies and deceit”.
“People of India will not trust the BJP again, as this party is responsible for the damages caused to secular fabric and harmony of the country”.
Mir said that people “will defeat the BJP in the upcoming parliamentary Elections miserably and will vote in favour of Congress Party and others secular forces in the country”.
He also hit out at PDP and other smaller political groups which, he alleged “are in the fray with the active support of BJP RSS”.
“PDP cannot escape the responsibility of damages caused to peace in Kashmir valley as it was under PDP rule in which hundreds of people were maimed and killed, even children were not spared for no fault of theirs, PDP has presided over darkest era of the State especially in valley, he said.
