Srinagar, National Conference on Wednesday reiterated its resolve of upholding the dignity of the state by fighting forces who have announced an all-out attack on states special status.
Addressing the Party’s monthly South Zone Committee Meeting at Khanabal, the NC South Zone President Dr Bashir Veeri said, “The present dispensation both at the center and the state doesn’t seem to be interested in protecting the states special status. All they seem to be interested in is on holding elections irrespective of who participates in them. Holding elections in such circumstances, wherein states premier political parties have in unison asked for protection of Art 35 A, is nothing but the murder of democracy.”
Castigating those who are hell-bent in enforcing local body elections on people of the state, Dr Veeri said, “There are people in the state whose sole aim is to enjoy the power and for that, they will barter states dignity as well. We will not allow that to happen. We will fight them come what may and will safeguard states special status with all our might and defeat the forces hellbent to erode states special status.”
“The meeting unanimously passed a resolution condemning the wanton arrests of youth in south Kashmir. The night raids, the arrest spree in villages and towns of south Kashmir must stop. A fear psychosis has gripped the entire area and its reflecting on our collective psyche. The trust deficit among people particularly youth has grown exponentially and if it is not addressed immediately, then things will become more difficult in coming days,” reads the resolution.
The meeting was attended and also addressed by Party Legislators and Senior Leaders including NC vice Provincial President Syed Shafi, MLA Homshalibugh and District President Kulgam Ab Majeed Bhat, senior leader Ab Kabir Pathan, Provincial Spokesperson and In charge Kulgam Imran Nabi Dar, VP South Zone Shabir Kullay, Zone Secretary Ab Rehman Tantray, In Charge Shangus Riyaz Khan, District Secretaries Suhail Beg, Safdar Khan, YNC South Zone Secretary Ishtiyaq Ah Ganaie, YNC DP Pulwama Javed Rahim Bhat in addition to Block Presidents and members of the District Committees.
