Criticising authorities for holding elections in poll bound areas amidst crackdown and deployment of heavy contingent of forces, separatist leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik Thursday asked the government to accept reality and shun the egoistic approach.
Lamenting at state administration, they said, “The authorities are deliberately adding fuel to fire and vitiating prevailing disturbance. Re-polling in Budgam and rescheduling polls in Anantnag constituency is just to affect the routine life and school education.”
The leaders welcomed the statement of Anjumam -e- Sher-e- Shiyaan and said that proposed peoples’ congregation will send a unity message and participants will offer their tributes to martyrs.
They said in poll bound areas of Budgam, police launched a heavy crackdown against youth and created panic. “However, the election once again proved a flop show.”
Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik asked Delhi and J&K Government to stop these flop shows as these “foolish moves are proving a nuisance and a reason for continuous bloodshed.”
They asked authorities to accept reality and shun their egoistic approach.
“Right to self-determination is a viable and acceptable solution to vexed problem, they said adding it will pave way for political stability in the region.
