Farooq seeks votes in favour of Aga Syed Ruhullah

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, May 9: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah today alleged that the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are suffering the consequences of the mistakes made by PDP in 2014.
Addressing an election rally the NC President appealed to the people to make the National Conference candidate Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi successful and defeat the BJP.
Dr. Abdullah said, “Parties who come to ask for votes from you today, just ask them who is responsible for the current situation in J&K. Aren’t these the same people who brought BJP here? These parties not only paved the way for the abolition of Article 370 and 35A here, but by remaining in the government, applying GST and bringing in the SARFAESI Act, they have presented a clear proof of their hostility to Kashmir.”
“Waqf was an institution and not a fiefdom of any party or any person. It was managed and administered by Muslims here. Today, the same institution is completely controlled by the RSS,” he said.
Dr Abdullah said that if the current rulers are not defeated in this election, then the future of minorities especially the Muslims will have to face more difficulties and sufferings.
He said that although BJP is not fighting parliamentary elections in Kashmir, it’s A, B, C and D teams are in the field and all government machinery has been deployed to support them.
“It is important to reject these proxies of BJP,” added.
Among others who were present during the rally included Sheikh Gayasuddin, Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi, Khalid Najeeb Suhrawardy, Dr. Sameer Kaul, Ghulam Nabi Rather and Mushtaq Mir.
