NC denounces Sajad Lone’s remarks on opposition meet

SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Saturday denounced the jibes of People’s Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone on the opposition parties meeting as unfounded and out of sync with reality.

In a joint statement issued party’s segment in-charges from district Kupwara including Choudhary Muhammad Ramzaan, Mir Saifullah, Qaiser Jamsheed Lone, Kafeelur Rehman, Shafqat Watali said the rants against Dr Farooq Abdullah is coming from a person who is hopelessly inconsistent in his views. “Known for changing narratives, his only permanent character is that of a pendulum which keeps on swinging from one extreme to another. From joining PAGD to leaving it, he has only damaged the cause of restoration of Art 370 and 35 A. JKNC and likeminded parties and individuals do not need his certificate on their commitment to fight for restoration of Art 370. In fact he needs to come clear on his deserting of the cause and subsequent unabashed lapping up with the RSS in Pahalgam recently,” the joint statement read.

Reiterating the party’s stand on the restoration of abridged democratic and constitutional rights of people of J&K, the functionaries added, “NC never claimed a national consensus on restoration of 370/35-A. There are parties who support our stand but others who don’t and we continue to engage with all of them to convince them,” the functionaries said.

However, the leaders said, it is unacceptable to be lectured by a party led by an individual who left the PAGD and abandoned the struggle to fight against 5th Aug 2019. “His dithering approach gives slip to his dishonesty about the cause. He has never been honest either to his supporters or the general public. His singular act of deserting the PAGD was the biggest blow to the unity that had been forged to fight for the restoration of J&K’s dignity. He has been rewarded for this by being invited to the high table of RSS backed conferences in J&K,” he said—(KNO)
