Srinagar, Dec 19: ‘Every killing in Kashmir fills the people with the sentiments of Aazadi. Pulwama incident was brutal and condemnable. It was better for Forces to use water-canons and tear-smoke shells than pellets and bullets. Killing of civilians disfigure the face of democracy,” this was stated by National Conference leader Dr Farooq Abdulla in response to a question here in Kashmir capital Srinagar on Wednesday.
To a question, Farooq Abdullah said that Governor Rule is always autocratic. “It is dictatorship. We hope Governor won’t take any step that will endanger peace in Kashmir. We also hope that elections will be conducted as soon as possible,” he said and took a dig over Governor for passing a number of bills in a jiffy.
On the reports that Governor administration has asked government employees not to use Firan in some government offices, Farooq Abdullah said that ‘Firan and Kangri’ are the part of culture of every Kashmir and he wears it in Kashmir during winters.
