Srinagar: National Conference (NC) president and former Chief Minister Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday alleged Narendra Modi led NDA government at the centre has created a war like situation in the country to subvert the attention of people from real issues.
Flaying Prime Minister Modi for squandering the precious mandate of people Dr Abdullah said, โ€œPM Modi had promised to deliver on various issues concerning the nation during his 2014 election campaign but he has aggravated the problems to an extent that will take decades to solve.
โ€œModi Government presents a tale of failures and misgovernment. People have now made it a point to give befitting reply to Modi for his failures and lies โ€, he said.
Dr Abdullah while reproving Union Finance minister Arun Jaitly for his recent uncouth assertions about Art 35-A said, โ€œArt-370, Art-35 A sanctify the constitutional link between New Delhi and the J&K state. They are hell bent to degrade our constitutional status; this assertion of his reveals their anti Kashmir agenda. Kashmiris have lent immense sacrifices to throw the autocratic yolk away from state. We have never allowed anybody to enslave us; we will never give up on that predilection of ours. We will fight for the unity and integrity of our state at any cost.โ€
While underscoring the importance of ensuing Lok Sabha elections, Dr Abdullah said, โ€œToday it is an opportune movement to clean the country and the state from the communal yolk. India is a vast country and our fight is with the communal forces. This time you have to cast vote for securing Indiaโ€™s Secular visage, and in particular the very identity and integrity of our state.โ€
Addresses party functionaries, workers at party head quarters Srinagar today Dr Abdullah claimed that the flag of NC symbolizes the sacrifices of many who gave their lives to end the ill- fortune Kashmiris faced for centuries. He said that the need of the hour calls for a second revolution to put up a joint effort to trounce the forces as are bent to destroy the integrity and unique constitutional character of the state.
Dr Abdullah said, โ€œThe leadership of the country who liberated the nation from colonial clutches bequeathed us with a secular and progressive constitution. They idealized an idea of India that was deemed to be for all, where everyone lives with dignity; where caste and religion would not have fettered anyoneโ€™s socio-economic advancement,โ€ adding, โ€œHowever there are forces as are disposed to tarnish the very secular visage of India. The agenda of BJP-RSS is all exclusive; they have all along shown consternation for the secular and progressive ideals of the Constitution of India.โ€
While underscoring the significance of the constitutional safe guards including Art-370, Art 35-A Dr Abdullah said, โ€œIt was in that constitution, a social document that National Conference was able to achieve a special dispensation for our state. The Delhi agreement streamlined the relation between Srinagar and New Delhi. Nonetheless whatever we were able to achieve was eventually eroded by the successive governments of the state led by Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad and G M Sadiq. They had to implement the agenda of New Delhi because they drew their sustenance from them. They were bound to do so, being at their beck and call, they had no other choice.โ€
โ€œHowever no sooner we returned to power, the unrelenting erosion of our special status ceased to end. However our absence from power corridors of our state gave all the forces as is inimical to stateโ€™s unique character and integrity a field day to fiddle with our status. What enfolded during past few years during the PDP-BJP rule bears my assertions out, be it implementation of National Food Security Act or GST. What was left of our special status in shape of our fiscal autonomy was eroded by PDP, the NC president alleged and added we have seen it all with our eyes. This should act as an eye opener to all.โ€
Dr Abdullah while reproving Union Finance minister Arun Jaitly for his recent uncouth assertions about Art 35-A said, โ€œArt-370, Art-35 A sanctify the constitutional link between New Delhi and the J&K state.

We have never allowed anybody to enslave us; we will never give up on that predilection of ours. We will fight for the unity and integrity of our state at any cost.โ€
He said that PDP canvassed in 2014 election campaign to keep BJP out but what followed they eventually landed up in the lap of RSS-BJP. โ€œMufti Syed in his last days repented for his colossal mistake but that delayed repentance of his was of no help. His daughter followed her fatherโ€™s suit and hobnobbed with BJP to keep her flock together. She hunkered down before BJP-RSS for the sake of power and chair. Not to talk of preserving what was left of our autonomy.โ€
โ€œThe countless miseries that were inflicted on Kashmiris in PDP-BJP government will take years to heal. Now Mehbooba Mufti is again up to the same gimmickry, she masters; this time we should not fall prey to her theatrics,โ€ he said.
While referring to the mushrooming of parties mostly one man armies in every nook and corner of the state, he said, โ€œMy father Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah foretold about such mushrooming of leaders in every alley of Kashmir after his death. People who were seeking freedom until the recent past are now sitting in BJP-RSS. Today they are hobnobbing with them but time will come when they will also suffer at hands of their masters.โ€
