Srinagar, April 7: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah said that the killers of Mahatama Gandhi are in power and alleged that they allowed Pulwama terror attack in spite of the intelligence inputs so that Narendra Modi could win elections.
“Maarne wale kaun the usko (Mahatma Gandhi)? Maarne wale yahi RSS wale jo aaj dhandhana rahe hain saare vatan mein…Aaj Delhi mein hukumat jo kar rahe hain vo vahi hain jo Mahatma Gandhi ke kaatil hain,” Abdullah said.
“It is their (Centre’s) mistake. They knew that the attack was going to happen. Where did the explosives come from? Modi had to win the elections, so he did this ‘karnama’ (misadventure),” said Abdullah, who on Sunday led an NC sit-in against the ban on civilian traffic on Jammu-Srinagar national highway.
“We are being pushed for no fault of ours. Are we living in a free country or is this a colony? They have imprisoned us. They must lift this ban before there is more bloodshed in Kashmir,” Abdullah warned the authorities.
The state government has banned civilian and public transport on Jammu-Srinagar highway on Sundays and Wednesdays to ensure safe passage to convoys of security forces in the aftermath of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack which killed 40 CRPF troopers.
