Srinagar, April 27 : Asserting that the politics based on deceit and falsehood has vitiated the atmosphere in Kashmir valley, besides isolating people and causing huge damages to overall development of the State, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president and party candidate from Anantnag Parliamentary Constituency G.A. Mir has emphasized the people of south Kashmir to strengthen the secular forces led by Congress Party by ballot.
Mir also said that the present elections was a direct fight between communal and secular forces. “The victory of secular forces amounts to safeguarding the Art 370, 35A which was in great danger due to the betrayal by power-hungry PDP,” he said.
According to a statement issued, Mir while addressing public gathering at Nussu Bedragund in Devsar Assembly segment of Kulgam District on Saturday, said: “The politics based on deceit and falsehood was the main source behind the loses caused to life and property, besides witnessing bloodshed and causing huge damages to people in every respect, even the efforts were being made to abrogate special status granted to the state by the BJP and their so called Bakhts, this all happened when PDP surrendered its core agenda for the sake of coming into power.”
Mir also hit out at BJP Chief Amit Shah over dreaming about abrogating Art 370 if voted to power, saying that BJP Chief has gone senile while sensing the defeat of Saffron Party in the present elections.
“Shah was desperate enough about the poll outcome, trying hard to exploit people over Art 370. No one can abrogate Art 370 because the special status granted to J&K State under constitution of India was permanent,” Mir said.
He said Congress Party respects the urges and aspirations of the people and will do everything to ensure that people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh do not feel isolated in any way.
“The coming two phases of present elections in South Kashmir would a be litmus test for them, as that, it is the power of their vote which can keep communal forces at bay, for that matter people should vote for the Congress Party to send a strong voice to Parliament from Jammu and Kashmir to represent them genuinely,” JKPCC chief said and appealed people to ensure his victory from Anantnag Parliamentary Constituency.
