National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah on Saturday accused the Central government of detaining and forcing his party leaders to join a different political outfit after they won the recently-held District Development Council (DDC) election in Jammu and Kashmir.
During a press conference in Srinagar, Omar Abdullah said, “Referring to DDC polls, the PM today said that democracy has won but the government has started to harass those who fought the election in Shopian.
They are being put under preventive detention for no reason.”
One lady of our party who won in the election in Shopian was forced to join Apni Party. We have a phone recording to prove it,” alleged the former J&K Chief Minister.
Omar’s remarks have come after Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) led by former finance minister Altaf Bukhari announced that Yasmeena Jan – the DDC member from Imam Sahib-I in south Kashmir’s Shopian district – has joined the party on Friday.
He said that he will present all this evidence if needed in future. At the behest of the government, the police and administration have detained the leaders of his party. All this is happening under a well-planned conspiracy. Government’s nefarious plans ever succeed.
