ISLAMABAD: (APP) Pro India NC leaders lash out at Indian policies for Kashmir
Pro-India National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah has said that a long-existing lobby in India is re-inventing its mission to erode what remains of the Article 370 , which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir .
Addressing a day-long lawyers' conclave in Srinagar, Farooq Abdullah said Mehbooba Mufti and her colleagues should draw lessons from history and fear the reprisals of political connivance with forces inimical to the interests of Jammu and Kashmir .
He pointed out that "This is a chronicle of betrayals and breach of faith that started with the deposition and incarceration" of his father Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah and continues to this day, Kashmir Media Service (KMS) reported.
Today we see the efforts of this lobby manifest in the form of the extension of NFSA and NEET to the State while the PDP-BJP Government is peddling an Industrial Policy' which is glaringly conspicuous in its ambiguity on the question of non-State-subject investors and promoters," he added.
Interestingly Dr. Farooq Abdullah , who himself remained at the helms of the affairs as so-called chief minister for most of the period in the territory, recollected various intrigues unleashed on the territory at various junctures in history through various local pliant politicians.
Mehbooba Mufti , he advised, should draw lessons from history and see how the people have first disowned and then completely forgotten those pliant leaders who connived against the territory's political rights to remain in power.
