Drabu Was JKLF Member Before Joining PDP: Malik


The statement said, "The party recognises Jammu and Kashmir as a political issue and ever since its emergence the party has relentlessly been pursuing its resolution through reconciliation and dialogue, both at internal and external levels".

JKLF leader said that Mr. Drabu is saying that everyone except him has been barking up the wrong tree for the last 50 or 70 years by talking about the politics of Kashmir and that it was not a political issue, we want to ask him that was he also barking the wrong tree when he was using freedom movement as a launching pad for his entry into politics. "We condemn this statement in the strongest of terms as it reeks of fallacy, delusion and indicates an enormous ideological U-turn for the party", he said.

Ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) today asked party leader and state's Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu to immediately retract his statement that Jammu and Kashmir should not be seen as a conflict state or a political problem, saying the state was a political issue and its resolution formed the party's core agenda.

Addressing a Press Conference at NC Headquarters "Nawa-e-Subha" in Srinagar on Sunday, NC General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, who was flanked by NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani and State Spokesperson Junaid Mattu, lashed out at Chief Minister and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti and her party for their "total sell-out and said this recent outrageous statement is the last nail in the coffin for PDP". Today, the same party suddenly declares that Kashmir is not a political issue.

He asked PDP president and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to explain Drabu's remarks.

"PDP feels highly perturbed at the obvious lack of urgency in resolving this issue and reiterates its commitment to uphold party's stated objectives in which the resolution of the political issue has a paramount importance", he said. Why have thousands of people lost their lives if Kashmir is not a political issue? India and Pakistan have fought four wars over Kashmir. It is a society which has social issues right now.

Speaking on the occasion, NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani hit out at the PDP for "fooling" the people of the State for nearly two decades by seeking their personal political empowerment by exploiting the political sentiment that they are now openly ridiculing.

"The PDP has time and again used the rhetoric of aspiring to become the bridge between New Delhi and Islamabad".

"It (J&K) is not a political issue as far as I can see. Why did the central government appoint an interlocutor if the PDP believes Kashmir is not a political issue?" he said.

He said the NC would always struggle for a dignified and acceptable resolution of the Kashmir Issue which is inherently and primarily a political issue.
