Not joining existing mainstream political parties, Hurriyat: Shah Faesal

Says will take decision after meeting people across board


Srinagar, January 11: Ex-Bureaucrat Shah Faesal on Friday said that he is not going to join any existing mainstream political party and is not going to be part of any Hurriyat camp.

Faesal was addressing his maiden press conference in a Srinagar hotel here.

According to KNO correspondent Faesal said that his vocabulary will be different and he will try to make people convince that he is credible and its nothing being done to distract them.

“As of now I want to create my niche outside any mainstream parties,” he said, and added that he will be going to grass root level and talk to people across the board.

Faesal said that that mainstream have not been able to represent the sentiment of people in right way.

“We need to tell truth to the people,” he said.
According to Faesal he is not either going to abruptly launch a new party.

“I thing we should be able to judge Hurriyat’s representative character if they are given opportunity to contest elections and we don’t know that people who are winning now, will they win if hurriyat contests elections,” he said.
“It will be wrong to presume hurriyat has no role to play,” he said.

Faesal also said that the problem in the state of Jammu and Kashmir has been that while politicians have been given the job to deal with the municipal issues and military to deal with the political situation.
“My narrative will be different and it will be according to people,” he said.

Faesal resigned from his services recently to join the political landscape of the state.
He was quickly hailed by Omar Abdullah and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also tweeted on his resignation.

“My manifesto will be out once I begin my interaction with the people,” he said.

“I am man from system and have my specialization in governance and I will be happy to do things in institutions.

I wish I could do that elsewhere but hurriyat doesn’t give me that opportunity,” he said, adding that we should accept the difference of opinion as they don’t believe in electoral politics.
