National Conference Monday said that Sajad Lone’s ‘obnoxious’ and personal remarks against Omar Abdullah was his reading from a script he had been handed over by the former RSS leader who recently had a closed door meeting with him in Srinagar.In a statement NC Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal while lashing out at Lone for yet ‘again being a source of embarrassment and an icon of compromise’ for the people of Kashmir, said, Peoples’ Conference was inherently opposed to Article 370 and the PC founder, Late Abdul Gani Lone had publically said that Article 370 was irrelevant and should be thrown in the Jehlum.”
“Sajad’s absolute mesmerization with Narendra Modi is not only embarrassing for the people of Kashmir but has also made his workers embarrassed as they are finding it hard to justify how the angry poster-boy of Kashmiri nationalism has jumped into the lap of a person who ridicules and mocks the flag and constitution of Jammu and Kashmir. Today Sajad Lone has found his brother in the same person who is accused of overseeing a mass genocide of Muslims during one of modern India’s worst communal riots. Sajad Lone has sold his conscience for an ashirwaad from Nagpur and if reports are to be believed, Sajad is in the process of merging his party with the BJP soon after the elections conclude,” Kamal alleged.
Reacting to Lone’s delusional remarks, Kamal said, “People like Sajad Lone had no moral right to give sermons on faith and religion and should rather introspect and realize how they have juiced the miseries of the common man in Kashmir to make personal fortunes out of nowhere. Those who sold the guns of Al-Barq and took false swears with their hands on the Holy Quran should not issue moral lectures to others. While Sher-e-Kashmir Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah was in prison during the struggle of the Plebiscite Front, the founders of People’s Conference were busy being a part and parcel of the Congress and every puppet regime that eroded Article 370.”The senior NC leader said that Sajad Lone faced a defeat due to his recurring U-turns in the Parliament elections of 2009 and ‘he would yet again have to eat a humble pie as far as his dreams of entering the State’s Assembly are concerned.’
