Unity necessary to defeat forces trying to fiddle with JK’s demography: Dr Farooq

Srinagar, Jul 12: Former Chief Minister Dr Farooq Abdullah on Friday called for unity to defeat the alleged conspiracy by communal forces to fiddle with the demography of the Jammu and Kashmir.
Speaking to number of delegation here Friday, the National Conference (NC) president Dr Abdullah, MP, said the state is caught in a tempest and that the need of the hour called for unity.
“The Sole agenda of the communal forces is to fiddle with the demography of the state”, he alleged. However, he said, if we strike unity within us, our enemies won’t be able to get an upper hand over us.
Dr Abdullah said in the days to come all sorts of political shenanigans and plots will be enacted in the state to divide the voice of the people in particular the Muslims. Our state is facing tirade on its identity. The situation is very dire. If we as a community fail to show unity at this time, the coming generations will not pardon us.
He said in the ensuing Assembly elections we will be voting for saving our identity. Furthermore there is no alternative to NC today; on one hand we have Trojan horses who owe their allegiance to the forces as are inimical to the interests of our state. On the other hand you have NC, a people’s party, and a party which has traditionally reflected the aspirations of the people of Kashmir. Now it is for you to choose between the two,” he said.
Dr Abdullah said that much productive time of the state was lost to uncertainty which had been bequeathed upon the state by former BJP-PDP coalition. “However, now the time has come that we should take it upon ourselves to usher in an era of development and prosperity in state.
“I am sure that with Omar Abdullah in the steering position of the new government the state will touch new heights of development. People too have made their mood to give reins of power in the trusted hands of NC. Our party has the legacy of service and sacrifice, we will continue with our mission of serving the people of state irrespective of their caste, creed and religious affiliations.”
