Srinagar: Expressing his deep sorrow and shock over the startling revelations of the minister for industries and commerce Chander Prakash Ganga that “545 industrial units have been already established by the non-locals in Jammu & Kashmir”, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani today said that at a time when the entire Kashmiri nation is protesting against the implementation of new industrial policy, this shocking revelation from the government is an open expression of arrogance of power and it has also came to fore that the new anti-people industrial policy which is being discussed on and off assembly already stands implemented and is working on the ground.
Geelani cautioned the “RSS backed Mehbooba Mufti government” that if the public reservations regarding the new industrial policy are not cleared, the pro-freedom leadership will come up with a joint strategy to counter this move.
In a Tuesday’s press release, Geelani said that the revelation of the Chander Prakash Ganga has confirmed that the discussions which were going on in the assembly on the new industrial policy and which lasted for many days was just a ‘drama’ and was a waste of time for both the public and the house.
Geelani, however, said that it is not a new thing for the Kashmiri nation but it has been routine since 1947.
“At first India forcibly captured this land and then gradually started to erode the special position of this state which was granted to it by the India itself,” he said.
Geelani said that it is quite obvious and expected from an oppressive invader like India but the role of those local politicians is more criminal and condemnable who merely for their petty interests are selling out every single asset of the state to the New Delhi.
He said that nobody from Sheikh Abdullah to Farooq Abdullah and from Mufti Sayeed to Mehbooba Mufti is exception to it and all of them have proved to be the merchants of the national interests of the Kashmiris. These are faithless people having no religion. (PTK)
