After backlash, Farooq, Omar out to hoodwink people again, toe separatist line

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 4: National Conference president and former J&K Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah seems to have finally realised that his party is in quandary due to the recent statements of his son, Omar Abdullah, over abrogation of Article 370.
According to the sources, many senior NC leaders are unhappy over the approach adopted by Omar Abdullah and also over the party's silence on Article 370 ever since the father- son duo was released from captivity earlier this year.
It was only due to this approach that the party's senior leader and chief spokesman Aga Syed Ruhullah resigned from his post. “I have sent across my resignation from the post of Chief Spokesperson of @JKNC. From here on none of my statements should be considered as such,” Ruhullah tweeted last month.
After sensing that other leaders may also toe Ruhullah’s line, NC leadership has taken a complete U- turn vis-a-vis its approach.
As per the reports, National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah has invited leaders of many political parties, including Peoples Conference (PC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Congress, Awami National Conference (ANC), CPI (M), PDF and J&K Peoples Movement headed by former bureaucrat turned politician Dr Shah Faesal to attend a meeting at his residence on Wednesday (August 5).
Besides Dr Farooq Abdullah, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, MPs Justice (retd) Hasnain Masoodi and Mohammad Akbar Lone, Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, Sajad Lone Muzaffar Shah, Ghulam Ahmad Mir, Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami and Dr Shah Faesal are likely to attend the meeting.
Meanwhile, Omar Abdullah too seems to have gone into damage control mode. He is busy making statements to douse the flames within his party. “People are always right. The way Delhi treated mainstream politicians after the abrogation of Article 370 has vindicated people. The people used to call us puppets, and they have been proven correct. I still remember when we were jailed, people celebrated it. Whatever was happening with people earlier was done with mainstream politicians also. So people were jubilant after seeing our humiliation,” Omar has said in a latest interview.
