BJP has been changing the statements about the DDC polls and the latest is that after the PAGD registered win, BJP said it is a victory of democracy.
PAGD leaders have questioned this logic of BJP and said that if they really mean it then they should restore article 370 as people have through democratic means rejected their abrogation article 370.
“If in real sense you are saying that democracy has won then you have to listen to people’s voice. People of Jammu and Kashmir have made it clear that August 5, 2019 is not acceptable to them,” Omar Abdullah expressed his sentiments about the BJP utterances on the victory of PAGD.
The BJP government had abrogated article 370 and 35A on August 5, 2019 followed by massive clampdown and communication blockade. Media reports during those times suggested that thousands of people, including three former chief ministers, Dr. Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti.
“This is not I who is saying that August 5, 2019 is unacceptable to people of J&K. You would earlier say no one is behind Farooq Abdullah. This People’s Alliance is an alliance of two families and people are not with them. We fought the elections and you know now people are with us.”
“How long will you tell the world that Kashmiris are likening August 5, 2019? How long would you tell the world that people of Jammu and Kashmir have nothing to do with Article 370? If this propaganda of yours would have been true, today you wouldn’t have been in this position,” Omar Abdullah concluded his recent speech after the PAGD victory.
