Srinagar, June 26, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Kashmir, people from different walks of life have ridiculed the Kashmiri political leaders who attended the all-party meet recently convened by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, in New Delhi. The local people in their interview termed the meeting a fixed match, which the Kashmiri politicians had been longing for.
“New Delhi has always breached trust of Kashmiris and local politicians have always been hand-in-glove with the Centre. This time too, New Delhi is trying to show to the international community that all is well in Kashmir and, for that reason, a fixed match was held with Kashmiri politicians in Delhi,” said Shahid Ahmad, a college student.
He also has a word of caution for Kashmiri politicians. “New Delhi even didn’t spare late Sheikh Abdullah, who offered Kashmir on a platter to India. He was jailed, humiliated (in 1953) and when they (New Delhi) felt they needed him again, he was released and given power in 1975. They have been repeating the same formula time and again. But I can’t blame New Delhi as our own politicians are power-hungry,” Ahmad rued.
His views were echoed by Mushtaq Dar, a shopkeeper in old city Srinagar, who believes that politicians are responsible for the mess IIOJK is in. “Speaking one language in Delhi and one in Srinagar has been a hallmark of Kashmiri politicians over the decades and it has not changed. But, now they can’t fool people with their antics anymore,” he said.
NC leader from Badgam, Agha Syed Roohullah, who had asked some tough questions from the leaders going for the talks, in a tweet said: “A human does not turn himself into a dog for a piece of bone! (sic).”
Dr Khawar Khan, a registrar at Government Medical College (GMC), Srinagar while ridiculing the Kashmiri leaders, tweeted, “They were a gang 70 years back, they were a gang on August 5, 2019 and they are a gang now. Blood hungry political mafia who have landed us into what we are in (sic).”
Musadiq Shah, a Kashmiri businessman, while ridiculing the Kashmiri politicians, wrote on Facebook: “This hyped meeting was a dictation for delimitation and further elimination of Kashmir.”
