PDP got moneybags in Delhi to wipe out NC: Farooq
NC kick starts campaign for LC seats polls

SRINAGAR, Nov 20: Union minister and National Conference (NC) leader Dr Farooq Abdullah today alleged that some forces in New Delhi and Kashmir were hatching conspiracy against his party.

He alleged that huge amounts of money were being spent to ‘disintegrate’ the NC.

“People in Delhi in collaboration with their well wishers in Kashmir are working over time to pull down National Conference, and for this they spend hefty amount of money,” he said while addressing panches and sarpanches at party headquarters in Srinagar. With the function NC kick started its election campaign for the coming election for four legislative council seats from Panchayat quota.

Farooq Abdullah today accused opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of getting bags full of money in Delhi to wipe out his party from Jammu and Kashmir.

"PDP got moneybags in Delhi to wipe out National Conference but we want to tell them NC is not weak and even if you spend crores of rupees you cannot wipe us out," Abdullah, who is also Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy, said.

He accused the PDP of trying to break the NC-Congress coalition in the state and said "the Muftis cannot fool people by showing green flags."

"National Conference is in the heart and blood of the people. It is not run by money. The enemies want to break the government but they will not succeed," Abdullah told a party convention here.

He said NC workers had faced bullets and made many sacrifices for the party and the state.

"Where was PDP in 1996 when we faced bullets. We have given many sacrifices for the state. What has PDP done?" asked Abdullah.

Dr Abdullah, however, expressed hope that such attempts of ‘conspiracies’ would be foiled at every level. “They must know that National Conference is not too weak. We are a deep rooted party and nobody has the guts to shake it.”

He said if such elements were not busy in hatching conspiracies, BJP would not have hoisted flag in Kashmir. “National Conference is people’s party and we have been representing their aspirations over decades now. It was NC which brought the Rawalpandi Road issue on its 1953 Sopore convention,” he recalled, adding that the day would come when the ‘barriers’ between the divided Kashmir would collapse.

“Zulfkar Ali Bhuto once told me that my father Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah was raising the Rawalpandi road issue, even an 11 year old girl from Azad Kashmir spoke to me and said it was only NC that could bridge the gaps between the two parts of Kashmir,” claimed the former chief minister adding that Kashmiris should not forget the sacrifices his party (NC) had made for them.

“They (Kashmiris) cannot forget our sacrifices. We have been fighting for them and will do so in future also,” asserted the NC president.

Accusing PDP of what he called, ‘introducing corruption at official level’, Dr Abdullah said that it (PDP leadership) should set their house in order first before leveling allegations on others. He added that so many attempts were being made to wipe out NC from the political map of Kashmir, but all such attempts failed.

The union minister appealed the panches and sarpanches to vote for the candidates of NC and Congress for LC polls.

Appealing to the youth to help in development of the state, he said the state cannot move forward without them. "Old people have fought for the party, but it is the youth who have to take it forward. We cannot move forward without the youth. They should come forward to help in the development of Jammu and Kashmir," Abdullah said.

"I am ill and cannot run around. I am there to guide you but it is you who have to make the party strong," he said.
