The Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) while reacting over the reports that PDP convention was stoned in Kulgam on Sunday said “those who killed our children and snatched their vision deserve such treatment.”
Terming the people’s resentment as “courageous”, a DFP spokesperson said in a statement “other districts should follow the suit and show the killers their worth.”
“Those unleashing pellet terror upon people and collaborators of communal elements don’t deserve any respect but the same treatment which PDP workers faced in Kulgam,” he said.
Meanwhile, party chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah termed the parliamentary elections as “drama” saying “National Conference and PDP are two sides of the same coin who can stoop to any low for achieving power”.
“Till yesterday, Tariq Karra used to lash out at National Conference and today campaigns for the same party. This is the height of opportunism and to expect any good from these people is a folly,” he said.
Shah challenged the government to allow the resistance leadership to meet people and “we’ll show you that your position is not above than a mohalla committee leader”. “Though we know these elections are sham but we still challenge the authorities to let us meet the people and everything will be clear,” he said.
Shah hailed the pro-freedom spirit of people particularly those of south Kashmir and Srinagar saying, “You have given shoulders to the coffins of your sons. Now, by observing curfew on election days, you have to show the pro-India politicians their worth.”—KR
