PDP hits out at Vikramaditya Singh over remarks on 1931 martyrs

Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday held meeting of its north Kashmir leadership to take stock of the overall functioning of the party affairs and measures needed to strengthen it further.
The party also flayed Congress leader Vikramaditya Singh over his statement on July 13, 1931 martyrs, terming it “derogatory, mischievous and reflection of a communal mindset”.
Party Vice President Abdul Rahman Veeri held a detailed meet with party’s top leadership over the present political situation and measures needed to be taken to defend core interests of Jammu and Kashmir state.
According to the party spokesman, the meeting discussed in detail the current political situation in the state and the need to safeguard state’s unique position and core interests.
A party statement said that while being part of the coalition, the PDP took “drastic and vital measures for the defence of the Article 35-A and the government had engaged the top lawyers of the country for the purpose”.
Veeri during the meeting emphasised that the need of the hour is to strengthen the party not to go adrift at such a crucial movement of history.
PDP’s General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura in his address termed remarks by Congress leader Vikramaditya Singh about the July 13, 1931 martyrs, as “derogatory, mischievous and blasphemous in nature”.
Castigating Singh over the use of the “foul language”, Hanjura asked the Congress leader to “read the history correctly to get an idea about supreme sacrifice made by the 22 Kashmiris on July 13, 1931”.
Hanjura said that the statement had reflected Singh’s “vindictive and communal mindset and has exposed how some people in the state love to remain in their feudal fantasies and seek pleasure in witnessing peoples’ rights being trampled with impunity”.
He also asked Congress party to come clear on its policy vis-a-vis the historic event of July 13, 1931.
“On one side Congress leaders play theatrics by offering Fateha on martyrs’ graveyard and on the other hand, the leaders of the party ridicule the same martyrs publicly. This is the high time, said Hanjura, that the Congress party must make its stand clear,” he said.
Other senior leader who attended the meeting include Javaid Beigh, Noor Mohammad, Abdul Qayoom Wani, Raja Manzoor, Mohammad Khurshid Alam, Gh Nabi Panditpuri, Irfan Sofi, Shabir Ahmad Mir, District Secretary Kupwara Mohammad Afzal , Adv khurshid Shah, besides all District and Zonal Presidents of north Kashmir.
