IGP vows to arrest Hurriyet leaders for conduct of polls
Srinagar, March 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, reiterating boycott for sham upcoming Indian parliamentary elections in the territory, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has said that pro-India political parties including Peoples Democratic Party and National Conference are following the same agenda and are not different from each other.
Describing NC’s recent statements as deceit and drama, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement said they were singing the same mantra as the PDP did in opposition. “Their rhetoric about autonomy, self-rule and parroting mantra for freedom are just political gimmick. Their main aim is to grab powers,” Gilani said.
He said that in 1975 NC embraced the power after backtracking from its promises and now PDP is beating about the same bush to remain in power”.
“The NC stands exposed. The people know well that they are deceiving and power is their sole motive,” he said. “National Conference is playing a dual and devilish card to garner sympathy by portraying their sympathy sentiment for the freedom camp or playing well wishers for Huriyet and many a time shower their love for our brave hearts,” Gilani said.
Taking a dig at PDP, Gilani said that during last election campaign the party misled people into believing that they enjoy support of the pro-freedom camp. “PDP is responsible for killing and maiming our hundreds of youth and we won’t forget their devilish role during peoples uprising in 2016.
They killed more than hundred, maimed thousands and ransacked properties worth billions,” he added. “…pro-India parties are no more interested in people’s welfare but they run after power and perks. They are responsible for the agonies people are facing as their actions justify illogical occupation of India over our Kashmir,” he said.
Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police SJM Gilani in a media interview said that police would arrest pro-freedom leaders and activists to ensure that the Lok Sabha by-elections were held in Srinagar and Islamabad. When asked if the police will take pro-freedom leaders in custody ahead of the by-polls, the IGP said, “We are ready to take all preventive measures to create a fair atmosphere for the by-polls.”Follow @kmsnewz
