Anti J&K forces won’t stand test of democracy: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar,  The Jammu & Kashmir National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday said that anti J&K forces won’t stand the test of democracy

The veteran leader was addressing party workers and functionaries from Sangrama constituency at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.

Abdullah said opportunistic politicians pose a bigger threat to the historical individuality and cultural uniqueness of Jammu and Kashmir.

“People have recognised the true face of these opportunists, who behind their deceptive facades are working towards dividing our voice and strength,” Abdullah said adding, “they know that they cannot stand the test of democracy. Whenever elections are held, people will teach them a lesson. How long can they run away from facing people? One or the other day they have to face them. However I’m sure that people won’t allow them to play with their honour and dignity.”

Stressing on the importance of maintaining unity in the ongoing struggle for restoration of J&K’s rights, Abdullah said he saw no way of achieving anything in J&K without a lasting unity between different sections of society.

“Unity in diversity must be our creed to last for all times and under all circumstances, otherwise there is no end in sight to our common problems in the shape of poverty, unemployment,” he said.
