Army, IB plan to annex PoK, claims Omar's uncle

Ruling National Conference leader and uncle of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mustafa Kamaal, has claimed that “Army and Intelligence Bureau (IB) are conniving to launch a Bangladesh-type operation to annex Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).”

He also slammed the Army for its “undue interference in state administration.” A local news agency quoting Kamaal said: “Army and IB want to repeat the same plan in PoK by which India conspired to separate Bangladesh from Pakistan in 1971.”

Terming the IB and Army as “avowed” enemies of Kashmir, Kamaal said the two agencies are responsible for arrest of his father and NC founder Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah in 1953.

“Army and IB are engaged in hatching conspiracies aimed at diluting the special status of the State. They are working on a plan to weaken the constitutional and legal position of the State to enslave people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he alleged.

Kamaal, who is also brother of Union Minister Farooq Abdullah, said following the statement of Omar Abdullah on the floor of the Assembly last year that Kashmir had only acceded and not merged with India, the Army and IB have been “consistently conspiring to weaken the party.” He claimed that Dr Abdullah often told him “don’t go against IB, otherwise, they will not allow me to win in Tangmarg assembly constituency during elections.”
