Farooq Abdullah says BJP not ready to listen to reason on J&K


SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) president and Member of Parliament, Dr Farooq Abdullah today said BJP is not ready to listen to reason on J&K. He was speaking at the party’s provincial committee meeting at ‘Nawa-e-Subha’ Complex in Srinagar on Monday.
Blaming the incumbent state government as well as the central government for the rapidly deteriorating situation in the state Dr. Farooq Abdullah said deaths, communal polarization, chaos, anarchy have engulfed all the three regions of the state.
While taking stock of the emerging situation across the state Dr Farooq Abdullah said, “Under the present PDP-BJP government, people of the state are being pitted against one another along regional and religious lines. This is being done with a design to seek specific political dividends by the ruling regime. BJP government at the centre instead of helping us get out of this vortex of violence is watching as a mute spectator. They seem to have given up on the state and have so far failed in bringing in a workable, practical and sensible way-out. When it comes to Kashmir the present leadership of BJP is so dogmatic in their approach that they are not ready to listen to reason.”
In the meeting party working president Omar Abdullah, general secretary Haji Ali Mohammad Sagar, additional general secretary Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani, and other senior leaders and party functionaries were present.
