National Conference Press Statements for today, the 8th of April 2014 follow: Page 1 of 1 Dr. Farooq says NC won’t let BJP touch Article 370 Omar, Dr. Farooq address rally in Batmalooo We now know who Modi's friends in Kashmir are: Omar

Srinagar: National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah and Working President NC and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah addressed an impressive public meeting in Batmaloo today. According to a statement issued to KNS, the public meeting was organized by MLA Batmaloo Irfan Ahmed Shah in connection to the campaign for Dr. Farooq Abdullah as the NC-Congress Coalition Candidate for Srinagar. The meeting was also addressed by National Conference Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani and MLA Batmaloo Irfan Ahmad Shah. Senior Vice Provincial President for Kashmir Sheikh Abdul Rehman, NC District President for Srinagar and MLA Zadibal, Peer Afaq Ahmed and NC Spokesman Junaid Mattu were also present on the occasion. Speaking on the occasion Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that National Conference would not allow Narendra Modi and BJP to touch Article 370 leave alone think of its abrogation or dilution.



BJP's intentions towards the people of Jammu & Kashmir are very clear now, as their manifesto has proven beyond any doubt that Narendera Modi can never be a friend of J&K. Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that the same people who played a role in the erosion of J&K's Autonomy and facilitated the sabotage of democratically elected governments were now singing different tunes in different garbs. There can be no compromise on the State's identity, despite the ink-pot brigade's covert tactical understanding with the BJP on this matter. Speaking on the occasion Working President National PageChief 1 of 1Minister Conference and Omar Abdullah said that the coming parliamentary elections were centered around the protection of the very ideals that form the bedrock of India's secularism and inclusivity. Omar Abdullah said that Narendra Modi had repeatedly asserted that he has friends from Kashmir

to Kanya Kumari and one couldn't help but wonder who Modi's friends in Kashmir could possibly be. Today, we have our answer - Modi's friends in Kashmir are the leaders of the ink-pot brigade. Omar Abdullah said that the National Conference and Congress alliance was our attestation of the fact that Rahul Gandhi was a young and sincere friend of the people of Jammu & Kashmir and a validation of our ideology of integrity and secularism. We see in Rahul Gandhi a leader who believes in inclusiveness, equitable growth and reconciliation with isolated sections of our society, unlike Narendra Modi who has revealed his tendency to communally polarize this country for political power.The public meeting was attended by thousands of men and women from Batamaloo Constituency and Dr. Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah were welcomed with pro National Conference slogans upon their arrival at the venue.

NC-Cong coalition exposed, no takers of hallow slogans”

PDP is going to make history in Parliament elections: Mufti

Surankote-Poonch, Apr 8 (KNS): Patron of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said that a strong wind is blowing in favour of PDP in whole State. He said that on-going Parliamentary elections are going to be proved as waterloo for Congress and National Conference in the country. According to a statement issued to KNS, addressing huge public gatherings at Surankote and Poonch in favour of party candidate Yash Pal Sharma on the last day of the campaigning for first phase of elections in J&K, Mufti said that over-whelming response to the PDP is a clear indication that party is going to make history in the Parliamentary elections. Seeking a decisive mandate of the people to get them rid from the yoke of scandalous, inept and corrupt National ConferenceCongress coalition regime, Mufti said that this government has proved as non-performing liability on the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that it is high time to intensify the campaign for change in Jammu and Kashmir. He said that PDP is contesting Parliament elections with a visionary agenda to change destiny of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. “We have fielded trusted and genuine candidates for the Parliamentary seats so that issues related to the people of Jammu and Kashmir should be effectively and vociferously taken up in the Parliament”, he said and added that a vote in favour of PDP would harbinger a new era of peace, growth and development in Jammu and Kashmir. “After 2002 Assembly elections PDP had proved how to translate promises into reality”, he said while recalling historical steps taken after formation of PDP led coalition in the State to restore peace and to accelerate developmental activities. Mufti especially mentioned that PDP led coalition, without compromising with the dignity of the people of the State, had pursued the reconciliatory process which was endorsed by the then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpyee and his successor Dr Manmohan Singh. He further said that PDP led regime had not only removed a number of misconceptions but also managed economic package for the development of the State without bartering wishes of the people. He mentioned towards financing of various developmental projects by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the State during that tenure. He, however, regretted that the present dispensation headed by National Conference has miserable failed to carry forward the process of peace and developmentwhich was initiated by the previous regime. “What to say of further consolidating the reconciliatory and peace initiatives made by the PDP led government, this coalition regime has even reversed the whole process through its wrong policies”, he said. He said that successive National Conference regimes were responsible for creating mistrust between people of Jammu and Kashmir and rest of the country. “Instead of properly projecting aspirations and wishes of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, successive NC governments in the State have brazenly bartered interests of people for the lust of power” he said, adding, “Since 1947 NC leadership has been compromising with wishes of the people and changing its stance from the time to time for power and

this is main reason of mistrust between residents of Jammu and Kashmir rest of the country”. “Facing credibility crises NC leadership has failed to prove itself as true representative of the people of Jammu and Kashmir before rest of the country”, he observed. “National Conference-Congress Coalition Government stands exposed for its non-performance and there are no takers for its hollow slogans now”, he said and added that this regime has reneged on almost all the promises made with the people during 2008 Assembly elections. Observing that opening of LoC for crossing and trade was a biggest achievement of PDP government, he emphasized that besides initiating steps to boost cross LoC trade, facility of visiting both sides of LoC should not be confined only to divided families. “There should be free movement of people from both sides of Kashmir”, he demanded. Terming opening of points on LoC as most significant CBM since 1947, Mufti that opening of Uri-Muzafferabad and Poonch-Rawlakote roads has liberated people of Jammu and Kashmir from seize which they had been facing after partition of the country While reminding the people about steps taken by the PDP regime to complete work on Mugal road, he told the people that Poonch would be soon emerged as “Gateway of Kashmir” and this belt would be a biggest business centre of this sub-continent. He reminded that during the regime of PDP-Congress various steps were taken for the development of this land locked border districts of Poonch and Rajouri.
