Srinagar, Jun 24: Peoples Conference (PC) senior vice-president and Abdul Gani Vakil on Monday accused the National Conference (NC) leadership of deceptive politics and questioned as to how can people expect the fulfillment of promises from those leaders who have been lying for decades together.
Addressing party workers in Nowpora,Miraji gund, Fedarpora, Dangerpora and Ruhama in Rafiabad Vakil said, 'It is strange that NC is making so much noise about the restoration of Sadr-e-Riyasat and Prime Minister Posts while the party along with their ally Congress not only denigrated these posts but also are the chief architects of the erosion of Article 370.'
A spokesman for the PC said more than 100 NC and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) workers joined PC on the occasion.Former minister Vakil said the people of Jammu and Kashmir have voted NC to power several times in the past, but while in power Abdullah’s have disappointed them.
'Even once NC passed the Autonomy resolution, but the Government of that time in Center (NDA) of which Omar Abdullah was a part, threw that resolution into a dustbin. Surprisingly, Omar didn’t even resign and continued to enjoy power,' he said.
Vakil, who resigned from Congress after about five decades and joined PC, said that it was NC’s wrong decisions at critical times has led to death and destruction in Kashmir and the present uncertainty is the outcome of sell-outs by the NC leadership to safeguard their family interests.
'Time has come to teach such people a lesson that have lust for the power, so that they no more exploit the gullible people for their vested interests,' he added.
Accusing NC of eroding article 370, Vakil further said, 'During decades of NC rule, through 47 amendments the special status of J&K was eroded and now the same party is shedding crocodile tears to appease voters.'
Vakil said that if PC comes to power, they will issue a white paper on constitutional position and erosions made thereafter which will expose NC and bring its real face before public.PC is headed by Sajjad Gani Lone, who was a minister in the PDP-BJP coalition government from the quota of saffron party.
