NC, Geelani 'war of words' worsens

 Amid speculations that the PDP and the BJP are inching closer towards government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, a festering ‘war of words’ has erupted between opposition National Conference (NC) and hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani.

The NC is again openly crying that hardline Hurriyat supports Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while Geelani accused the former of playing “vote bank politics.”

As of now, the hardline Hurriyat and the NC are at daggers drawn, trying to strip each other in public. After some statements by Geelani against NC president Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah, the latter spewed venom against the former. And, there’s no end to this.

In the latest, hardline Hurriyat issued a formal statement against the Abdullahs.
The separatist party said the Abdullahs were playing “vote bank politics” by doing “sweet talks.”

“Whenever NC is out of power, they suddenly start to remember the state’s autonomy and the betrayal of India and also start to talk about the friendship with Pakistan and the resolution of Kashmir. But when they are in the government, they not only hate to talk about the word autonomy but Farooq Abdullah also suggest India to attack PaKistan and occupy that region too,” Hurriyat spokesperson Ayaz Akbar said in a statement.
