NC’s duplicity exposed
9/20/2020 10:45:52 PM
National Conference president and former J&K chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah not talking about abrogation of Article 370 in the ongoing session of Parliament has punctured the so-called “Gupkar Declaration” which was issued jointly by Kashmir centric parties last month.
Through this declaration these parties had challenged the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and had claimed that they would fight to get everything back.
Before the commencement of the ongoing Parliament session National Conference had indulged in tough posturing. Its leaders had dropped enough hints that they would take up the issue of scrapping of Article 370 and J&K’s reorganization in the Lok Sabha, and would try to corner the government over the issue. However, after the monsoon session of the parliament commenced, NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah spoke about everything except Centre’s August 5 decision.
Dr Farooq maintaining silence over the issue of Article 370 has made it amply clear that Kashmir centric politicians are continuing to follow their old tradition of speaking one language in Kashmir and another in New Delhi. When these leaders met in Kashmir they raised hue and cry over revocation of Article 370 and tried to send a message to people that they are firm on their stand, but after reaching the national capital they have not even referred to what they had spoken in the Valley. It appears that National Conference has accepted the change in J&K’s status-quo and wants to move on. The tough posturing which NC has resorted to in Kashmir appears to be a tactic aimed at making people believe that it has not changed its stand but the actions of NC leaders are speaking louder than their words. It’s high time for the NC leaders to give up their double standards and duplicity. People are aware about their stunts and know it very well that there is lot of difference between their “kathni and karni” and they don’t mean what they are saying.
What’s more surprising is that what has made Dr Farooq change his stand within a span of just few days after he gathered everyone at his Gupkar residence in Srinagar and vowed to fight to get everything back that J&K has lost. It appears that Dr Farooq Abdullah and his party are in no mood to annoy New Delhi anymore. They want to remain free rather than getting caged again. The NC leaders should clear the air and make an announcement that their party is no more interested in what has happened and wants to bury the hatchet and move ahead.
