Blistering attack on opposition

Social Welfare Minister Sajjad Ghani Lone launched a blistering attack on National Conference and Congress saying they were playing politics over dead body of Burhan Wani. This shows the political game plan of opposition leaders to not run the State Legislative Assembly smoothly. Taking a dig at the opposition NC and Congress, Sajjad said, “I don’t think that the opposition has a bit of sorrow for those who were killed instead they are score settling.” He blamed the opposition of “indulging in theatrics over the killings in Kashmir.”
Sajjad Lone went all guns blazing against the National Conference and Congress saying there record was very high in human rights violations and that they have nothing to do with protesters but were only using their name for political purposes.
Taking on former Chief Minister and National Conference working president Omar Abdullah, Sajjad Lone said when Omar had alliance with Narendra Modi (the Prime Minister), everything was good. “When I’m in alliance with them, it’s wrong. It’s not only your domain,” he remarked.
The Minister said the he is grateful to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)…their Government at the Centre…they gave me the passport…they gave visa to my children. The previous Government had denied me the passport and visa,” Lone, a leader of People’s Conference and an ally of the BJP.
Amidst frequent interruptions to his speech by NC and Congress members especially by former Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone, Sajjad said: “historically, National Conference and Congress have a role behind every Kashmir killing as they signed so much treaties”.
Taking on Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Rigzin Jora, who had often been using the term ‘unholy alliance’ for PDP-BJP Government, Sajjad Lone said “you were in alliance for 40 or 50 years, was everything holy? Congress is equally responsible for unrest in Kashmir”. Sajjad also countered opposition attack over use of pellet guns which have been responsible for widespread injuries, saying it was the National Conference government which had introduced these weapons for mob control in the Valley.
“Nawang Rigzin Jora (CLP Leader) has started a new term of unholy alliance and those whom you (Congress) mug down in last 40 or 50 years where holy. Do you have any account how many people have you killed, if there is any political party which is number one in terms of killings, is Congress”, he said in J&K Assembly on the debate on Kashmir situation here.
The BJP government came, God bless them, they not only gave me passport but visa to my children. You talk of communal riots but …One thing I will tell you about Congress, that be it corruption or communal riots you top in both”, he said.
“The NC and Omar Abdullah had to cross thousands of dead bodies to reach here, be it 1987 or 1996. Are you saying that those killed when NC is not in power are more sacred then the ones killed when NC was in power,” Sajjad said.
Asserting that Opposition National Conference and Congress have nothing to do with the people of Kashmir, he charged them with playing politics over the dead bodies including that of Burhan Wani. He called upon the Opposition to at least have respect for the
dead bodies.
