SRINAGAR, July 27 : Bharatiya Janata Party Spokesperson and senior party leader Dr Darakhshan Andrabi has strongly reacted to the statement of National Conference leader Omar Abdullah in which he has threatened to boycott the elections till the statehood of J&K is not restored.
“They fought elections in J&K for more than seven decades. Their politics led us all to bloodshed; they divided us on regional, communal and linguistic basis to remain in power.
It will be a gift from them to the people of J&K if they disappear from the political scene in J&K,” said Dr Andrabi.
BJP spokesperson said that NC dealt with the state like a ‘public limited company’ and they wasted seventy years of the people on immature and hollow slogans. She said that the contribution of their long rule is just the ‘exploitation of the people’s sentiments’.
“It is the age of the fresh minds to lead J&K in politics and there is no need now for the exploiters. They are a story of failures. They always dodged Panchayat elections while in power.
They boycotted Panchayat polls last year. Panchayats were successfully elected by the people. The government has now gone to the doorsteps of people even in remotest areas.
Without these dream-merchants, J&K will go ahead and elect fresh leaders in the days to come,” said Dr Andrabi.
She said that it was loudly cleared by the Union Home Minister on the floor of the Parliament that the Statehood of J&K will be restored as soon as the law & order situation in J&K improves. “Then what is the fun of such hue & cry.
Let the law & order situation in J&K improve which has worsened because of these past rulers who allowed the situation to be out of hand for their personal-interests”, said Darakhshan Andrabi. She said that the change was the rule of the nature and the change in J&K has happened for the good of the people and the place.
She advised Omar Abdullah to learn from the change and behave maturely by trying to read the writing on the wall.
