The National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah on Thursday said PDP stood formally and publicly exposed as an opportunistic subsidiary of the BJP in J&K and it was now impossible for the party to cover its tracks.
The NC Working President, while addressing party workers at the launch of NC Membership Drive 2015 in Pulwama and Budgam districts today, said those in the Valley who had never participated in the electoral process came out to vote in 2014 to keep BJP out of power in the State.
“Sadly they were betrayed by PDP’s singular obsession with power at any cost. How ironic is it that Mehbooba Mufti went around asking people to vote for PDP in order to keep BJP out of power in the State and then the same Mehbooba Mufti went on to visit Amit Shah’s Durbar to seek his blessings for the PDP-BJP alliance”, Omar said.
He launched the party’s Membership Drive for Pulwama District at a workers’ convention held at NC District Headquarters in Pulwama and later for Budgam District at a workers’ convention held at Budgam Sports Stadium. The National Conference Membership Drive is being launched at all district headquarters across the State.
“Despite all our ideological and political differences with PDP, we had offered them our unconditional support with the intention of keeping RSS out of J&K. Tragically however, PDP preferred to embrace RSS and BJP instead. And despite his effortless, complete sell-out for becoming the Chief Minister, Mufti Sahab has been pushed into a humiliating corner where he has been stripped of all the powers and authority of the Chief Minister’s chair. Decisions taken by the Chief Minister are publically overturned by Cabinet Ministers,” he said.
