SRINAGAR : Demanding immediate and unconditional release of all prisoners, Hurriyat conference blamed PDP led administration for unnecessarily prolonging their detention period. Accusing PDP for playing deceitful politics, Huriyat said that hypocrisy and treachery is the trait of PDP.
Lashing at PDP, Hurriyat said that this party is the creation of agencies and its rhetoric for battle of ideas stand exposed and added that they should realize this fact that pellets, bullets and Safety Act now stand sign and symbolic for their treacherous politics.
Since the inception of PDP, they are following dictates from Nagpur and there seems no let-up in pellets and bullets, said Hurriyat and added that though pellet gun and chemical weapons are specifically used against wild animals, however PDP in order to remain in power corridors and appease their masters, used these weapons against innocent and unarmed civilians.
Their rhetoric for battle of ideas, is nothing but hoax, said Hurriyat and instead caged people and strangulated their genuine voices. Slapping PSA against its opponents and youth is its favourite game, said Hurriyat and added that PDP puppets of Nagpur have crossed all limits and turned valley into a graveyard.
Hurriyat expressed its deep concern over the deteriorating condition of prisoners, saying they are being subjected to political vendetta and no proper medical treatment is provided to ailing detainees.
