All existing political parties responsible for the mess in J&K: Altaf Bukhari

 “We are just trying to ease up the situation’

SRINAGAR, January 13: Former finance minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari has said Jammu and Kashmir has been the worst victim of politics of deceit and double talk and all the existing political parties are equally responsible for the current situation in this erstwhile State.

Reacting to BJP State General Secretary’s statement in which Altaf Bukhari and his colleagues were offered to join BJP, Bukhari said that BJP leadership should go for self-introspection and quantify its contribution in erosion and subversion of democratic edifice in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Time for the politics of deceit and drama is over. I, my friends and colleagues are joining heads together just to safeguard the interests of people of Jammu and Kashmir. Our efforts are on to get rid of politics of opportunism played by other political parties,” he observed.

The former minister remarked that the wrong policies adopted by political parties that have been at the helm of affairs at Centre and the State during last many decades pushed Jammu and Kashmir into a quagmire and uncertain situation. This situation, he added, not only led to death and destruction but drastically hindered the growth of this region.

“Be it Congress, BJP, or for that matter the regional political parties like NC, PDP and others—all of them are directly or indirectly responsible for the chaos and confusion among the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” Bukhari averred.  

He said like Congress, BJP cannot evade the responsibilities of its wrong doings and failures in building trust and confidence among the people of this erstwhile State despite ruling at the National level.

“We are deeply concerned about the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir and do not intend to do any kinds of politics on the sufferings and miseries of our people. It is in our individual capacities that we are trying to mitigate peoples’ despondency. Time is ripe that all political parties should rise above power politics and think about easing up the situation for the helpless people of this state,” Bukhari opined.

He urged all the parties across the political spectrum at Centre and the State not to adopt rhetorical politics for the sake of power instead help Kashmiris to come out from the current distressing situation.  “Need of the hour is that all the stake holders should put in their efforts and work together for peace and prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir,” Bukhari observed.
