Srinagar, Mar 9: National Conference leader Muhamamd Akbar Lone Monday said that the name of Sher-i-Kashmir can’t be erased from the annals of history of Kashmir. He said that hearts and minds of some Indian are filled with the hatred for Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah and this name will always give sleepless nights to those who are stooges of New Delhi.
Lone told Kashmir News Trust that the name change spree across India is only to divert attention from the real issues. “Such forces get active from time to time but these forces should understand that Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah was the tallest leader of Kashmir who changed the course of history,” Lone said while reacting to the government move to drop ‘Sher-i-Kashmir’ from International Convocation Centre here in Srinagar.
The incumbent Member Parliament while reacting to the formation of a new political party in Kashmir said that those who are part of this new dispensation betrayed Mehbooba Mufti and late Mufti Muhammad Sayeed. “Some people in this party used to even swear on National Conference. These politicians back stabbed Mehbooba Mufti and people know their reality. They surface from time to time to aid and assist New Delhi, forgetting the sufferings and emotions of people of Kashmir,” Lone said.
While responding to question, Muhammad Akbar Lone said that in coming days the reality about this new party will dawn upon the people. “Whether it is a BJP backed party or not, truth will surface in coming days,” Lone said.
