NC helping BJP indirectly: Sajad Lone
12/1/2021 10:47:17 PM

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 1: Amid the ongoing “verbal duel” between Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and J&K Apni Party, Sajad Gani Lone, chairman of Peoples’ Conference charged National Conference (NC) with ‘indirectly’ supporting the BJP.
Lone countered NC vice president Omar Abdullah in which he blamed Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for the abrogation of Article 370.
“It was National Conference which had allied with BJP much before the formation of PDP-BJP government in J&K”, Lone reminded Omar Abdullah and recalled that despite being in alliance with BJP, the greater autonomy resolution passed by the NC government was thrown into the dustbin by the BJP led NDA government at the Centre.
On Tuesday, Omar Abdullah has slammed Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s ‘one wrong decision’ for the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35-A.
Abdullah said Sayeed made a mistake by forming a coalition government in the J&K with the BJP.
“I told Mufti Sahib I had no greed for power. I had already served for six years as a chief minister and I told him that we don’t want any of our MLAs and MLCs as ministers in the government. I told him that we will support you unconditionally, but please don’t bring BJP here in J&K,” Abdullah said.
“It was NC which first of all allied with BJP at the Centre”, he said.
Joining the controversy Sajad Lone said that after 1996, National Conference has become the establishment’s party.
Pointing towards the ongoing tour of Omar Abdullah in Doda, Kishtwar, and Ramban districts, Sajad Lone said that this belt is traditional a stronghold of Congress. “By visiting in this belt Omar Abdullah is trying to divide anti-BJP vote to indirectly support the Saffron Party”, he said, adding, “If NC is so serious in avoiding division of votes, it should leave this belt for Congress”.
Earlier in October, Sajad Gani Lone had asked National Conference to support his party if it was worried about the division of Muslim votes in Jammu & Kashmir.
Sajad said NC should support his party if it was concerned about the splitting of Muslim votes in J&K.
“If they think Muslim votes were being divided, let they support us and themselves stay away from elections,” Lone said when asked for his views about Farooq Abdullah’s statement that efforts are being made to divide Muslim votes in J&K.
