Reacting to the BJP’s decision to skip the 86th Kashmir Martyrs Day today, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said that the only objective of the BJP-PDP alliance government in Jammu and Kashmir is to stay in power and loot the state.
The former Chief Minister also alleged that the BJP and the PDP have nothing to do with the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"It is obvious. They have nothing to do with this. They are only here to stay in power and loot the public of Jammu and Kashmir," Farooq Abdullah told media persons.
Farooq Abdulla pointed out that July 13, 1931 was the beginning of a struggle against tyranny, oppression and despotism.
He also added that July 13, celebrated as Kashmir Martyrs Day, was a watershed moment in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti along with Farooq Abdullah today paid tribute and observed the Kashmir Martyrs Day but the BJP skipped the event.
The state administration did not allow separatist leaders to organise any rally or programme on this occasion.
As a precautionary measure, mobile and internet services have also been blocked across the Valley.
