Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti Monday said that ‘a dangerous game is going on between National Conference and Bhartiya Janata Party’ and both the parties are hell bent to put the state on fire.
“Both these parties are hand in glove. Reaction and over-reaction on Kishtwar violence by the top leaders of these both parties makes their game plan clear. National Conference is going to lose nothing in Chenab Valley but it is the Congress which would suffer as this party is dominant in Chenab,” she said.
Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Mehbooba condemned the statement made by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah that two Muslims and one Hindu was killed in communal violence. “This statement on part of CM makes it clear that he wants to divide the people on communal lines. Why Muslims were not being compensated and why killers are being allowed to roam freely. Kishtwar people especially the people living in Paddar area are suffering and there are reports that most of them have been migrated from their villages,” she said.
Criticizing Omar for his 'tall claims', Mehbooba said that there is no curfew on ground. Protests are going on in Kishtwar and no security agency is there to control them. This is selective justice. People from a particular community are being made to suffer,” she said adding that if Omar is accusing Modi today then why he was silent when his father supported Modi over Ghodra killings.
“Now Omar has sought resignation from one of his Ministers. People want to know what action Omar Abdullah took in 2010 when more than 100 innocent people were butchered,” she said.
Mehbooba said she was surprised the way BJP members behaved in Parliament on Kishtwar incident. “Why these members were silent when more than 100 people were killed in Kashmir in 2010 and now they are raised hue and cry,” she said adding that Village Defence Committees and Police Task Force was the brain child of Farooq Abdullah.
While replying to a question, Mehbooba said that VDC’s should be disbanded and alternative jobs should be provided to these members associated with these Committees.
She said Omar is not serious in diffusing the situation. “If he had been serious and wanted us to take on board then he should called us in time to attend in that all parties meeting. Divisional Commissioner Jammu called me at 11 informing me to attend the meeting at 1:30. What is this that I was being informed about the meeting just before two hours? Was I possessing a government chopper which could have helped me to reached in Jammu in one hour,” she said.
