Srinagar, Apr 13: The resistance leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik on Thursday criticized authorities for holding elections in poll bound areas amidst crackdown and deployment of heavy contingent of forces and said that “it is a slur on the democracy.”
Lamenting at state administration, resistance leaders in a statement issued to KNS said, “The authorities are deliberately adding fuel to fire and vitiating prevailing disturbance. Re-poling in Budgam and rescheduling polls in Islamabad constituency is just to affect the routine life and school education.”
Resistance leaders welcomed the statement of Anjumam -e- Sher-e- Shiyaan and said that proposed people’s congregation will send a unity message and participants will offer their tributes to martyrs.
Resistance leadership said that in poll bound areas of Budgam, police launched a heavy crackdown against youth and created panic, however the election once again proved a flop show.
Resistance leaders asked Delhi and its henchmen to stop these flop shows as these foolish moves are proving a nuisance and a reason for continuous bloodshed.
Pro-freedom leadership asked authorities to accept reality and shun their egoistic approach. Right to self-determination is a viable and acceptable solution to vexed problem, said they and it will pave way for political stability in the region. (KNS)
