The demarcation process was a smokescreen to cast a veil over the murky agenda at work and no amount of gerrymandering can change the situation on the ground in Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference President Farooq said on Saturday. Abdullah.
He said the whole delimitation exercise was blind to universally accepted and practiced criteria and principles of electoral representation.
The party’s position on the whole delimitation process was crystal clear. The whole process was just a smokescreen to hide the murky agenda at work, Abdullah said in Boteng, Kulgam district, south Kashmir, where he had gone to offer his condolences to the bereaved family of a party leader.
However, no amount of gerrymandering will save the BJP and its proxies from people’s wrath. The JK people made it their business to punish BJP and its proxies for everything they did to JK. No matter how many false fronts they present, people will not forgive those who have robbed the region of its precious unique status, historical individuality and dignity. The writing is on the wall, he said.
Abdullah, who is also an MP for Srinagar, claimed there was an outpouring of anger against the BJP and its proxies across JK and Ladakh.
All sectors of our economy are bleeding. Our youth is at a crossroads, our traders are facing unprecedented situations. The fate of our tourism players, transporters and craftsmen is no different. Inflation, unemployment and the development deficit have greatly aggravated the concerns of our people, he said.
