Farooq Abdullah refuses to learn from past mistakes

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Apr 14: NC president Farooq Abdullah, who is seeking re-election from the Srinagar parliamentary constituency, is terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "Hitler" and ridiculing his "Sab Ka Saath Sab Ka Vikas" mantra. He is also telling the followers of his community in Kashmir that democracy under PM Narendra Modi is under grave threat.
It's an election season and also time to say whatever those contesting election want to say. So, it doesn't surprise anyone when Farooq Abdullah says what he has been saying to induce voters to swing behind him and defeat others pitted against him by parties like the PDP, the BJP and the People's Conference (PC).
However, Farooq Abdullah, at the same time, is making a mockery of the whole electoral exercise and attacking the very cardinal principals of democracy that gives the people and the parties an opportunity at regular intervals to take part in electoral exercise and enter the Lok Sabha or the Assembly. He is saying that a vote against the NC is a vote against Kashmir and those who are contesting elections in Kashmir are the enemies of Kashmir.
In other words, Farooq Abdullah has been saying that to contest elections in Kashmir, capture Lok Sabha seats and capture state power in the state all are the sole preserve of the NC and all others are only enemies of Kashmir.
On Saturday, he crossed all the lines and accused PC chief Sajad Lone of dividing Kashmir by fielding his candidate from the Srinagar and Baramulla Lok Sabha constituencies. He also charged the RSS-BJP combine with creating new leaders and parties in Kashmir.
"The BJP and RSS want to divide Kashmir by creating new leaders and parties in the region. BJP wants to divide us…people are being brought from UP to fight elections in Kashmir. Who is funding them and who is promoting them? Why are not they contesting from Jammu? Why only Kashmir? Sajad Lone's participation in elections is a "move to divide Kashmir. Now Lone Sahib's son has formed another organization, but let me know why new leaders and parties are being launched in Kashmir only…Don't know how many crore of rupees were given to him to divide us," the angry Farooq Abdullah said.
What Farooq Abdullah said only indicated his state of mind. It also suggested that he has forgotten baneful influence of the 1987 wholesale rigging in Kashmir, which converted the people's anger against Farooq Abdullah and the Congress into anti-India anger and only produced Salahuddins. It was the murder of democracy that created a crisis in 1987 on an unprecedented scale and the nation is paying through its nose ever since then.
