Describing ex-separatist leader Sajjad Lone’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi as ‘shaddy’, the Jammu Kashmir Congress spokesperson Shafiq Mir said that it has unmasked BJPs nationalistic drama that this party can go to any extent for the sake of political gains.

Terming the development surprising and unfortunate, Shafiq Mir said that the people who patronised separatism and have been promoting terrorism in the state for the past two decades have been invited by the Bhartiya Janta Party on “evening Tea” at the level of prime minister that too without any accountability. This development shows this party can go up to any extent for the sake of political gains which they call mission 44, he said, adding that they will, however, never succeed in their designs as the people of the state are wise enough to decide their future.

He also expressed surprise that the BJP, which has been in the past two decades exploiting whole nation in the name of separatism in Jammu Kashmir, has for the sake of power now forging  “unholy alliance” with such groups who have always been on war with India. The Congress leader cautioned and also warned the Central government against any attempt to launch any such person in the state as it will have dire consequences.

He said the top most priority of the Central government should be free and fair elections in the state irrespective of who so ever comes to power. The BJP’s so called “mission 44’’ slogan indicates that this party can go up to any extent to grab the power which will have dangerous consequences in the future.

    I am shocked. Congress is finding it objectionable if Modi is talking to Lone, a moderate separatist, and trying to bringing him into mainstream. At the same time, Congress is lambasting BJP govt for its tough stand against s meeting known extremist separatists. Shame on you, Congs.

      For 67 years what did Congress do ? Give "special privileges" to Kashmir, Nehru signed the double standard called Article 370 and average Indians hard earned tax money is used to feed, cloth and develop Kashmir where they can't even set up a tea stall. Now dirty "sickular" Congress traitors want to teach us about "nationalism" and who are separatists ??Dont worry CONgress - your days are numbered.

          Mirchi lagi to bahoot dard ho ta hai - you can get relief by rubbing ice where it hurts. Congress have to say something even if it is nonsense.
