‘It has now gone beyond elections’, Mehbooba calls for all-party meet on Modi’s fresh onslaught

Srinagar, August 18 (KMS): Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti has contacted Farooq Abdullah to convene an all-party meeting to decide the future course of action on the latest onslaught of the Kashmiris’ rights by granting franchise to the Indian citizens in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, stating that it has now gone beyond elections.

Addressing a news conference at her Gupkar residence in Srinagar, Mehbooba Mufti pitched for unity among all stakeholders and said that after the 2024 elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will remove the constitution of India and replace the Indian flag with the ‘Bhaghwa flag’.

Mehbooba Mufti said that the decisions are being taken in the interests of the ruling Bharatiya Janata party not general public.

“The new diktat from Chief Election Officer to give voting rights to outsiders will enable BJP’s 25 lakh non-local voters to vote for it. Democracy has been already trampled in Jammu and Kashmir.”

She said BJP wants to de-franchise the people of Jammu and Kashmir. “When 25 lakh voters from outside will vote in Jammu and Kashmir for BJP then what is the value of the vote of Kashmiri and Jammu people,” she asked.

“BJP wants to install a local fascist in Jammu and Kashmir to advance the interests of the party. BJP has been ruling Jammu and Kashmir directly for last 3 years but failed to break the resolve of people of Kashmir.”

She said that BJP wants to change the demographic character of Jammu and Kashmir and warned that this will not only affect the Muslims of Kashmir but will prove disastrous for the Dogras of Jammu and Kashmiri Pandits. She said the BJP which claims to be the messiah of Pandits has made things complicated for them. “BJP advanced its interests using the pain of Kashmiri Pandits,” she added.

Mehbooba said that BJP is implementing the policies of Nazi Germany and Israel in Kashmir and wants to gain votes across India by forming a government in Jammu and Kashmir. “Let me tell the BJP, Hitler crossed the limits of suppression but failed to eliminate the Jews and Israel which has let loose a reign of terror in Palestine has been failing to break their resolve. In the same BJP won’t succeed in her evil designs till a Dogra and a Kashmir survive in Jammu Kashmir.

“We have been witnessing how the elections are being rigged everywhere in” India. She urged Indian civil society to understand the intentions of the BJP.

The BJP is not going to change India into Hindu Rashtra, but in BJP Rashtra, she said, adding that the way Article 370 was removed unconstitutionally and the Indian constitution was subverted — It is all in the interests of BJP as, after the decision, the party sold Jammu and Kashmir plot in rest of the countries.

“Similarly, voting rights to the non-locals are aimed at conducting fraud elections to allow the BJP fascist local to rule here. They have understood that after three years of rule in J-K, they couldn’t break the resistance of silent people,” she added.

“The situation is not different for Muslims only, but for every community including Dogra, Pandit as well,” she said.

“We need to get united after the latest onslaught”. She also appealed to all parties to join hands to fight tooth and nail.

“It’s not about the legality but about the intentions behind it. The Modi government is not following any rule, she said when asked about the voting rights of non-locals.

She said ground reality never changes and the Kashmir issue has to be resolved sooner or later.
