Union min terms Farooq's statement as politics of opportunism

Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

Taking a dig at former chief minister Farooq Abdullah on his controversial statement over Kashmir, Union Minister of State in the PMO, today said that it was "politics of opportunism".

"Some Kashmir centric political parties are like, when they are in power they say Kashmir to be an integral part of and when the very same people are out of power they get enlightened overnight," Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a function here today.



Without naming the (NC) President, the union minister said that it become necessary for such leaders to raise question mark on Kashmir once they are voted out of power.

"These Kashmir centric politicians feel the necessity to raise question mark on Kashmir, and I must make this prediction that tomorrow if they come back into power, they will again see Kashmir as an integral part of Kashmir," Singh said.

A section of electronic media had reported that Farooq while speaking at a public meeting in Kishtwar last week had said that Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) is not "your father's property" as he insisted that neither nor Pakistan could capture the state's territory falling outside their control.

Singh said that the people of Kashmir especially the youth have understood the "dual nature" of this type of politics.

"This is a type of opportunism politics, but the satisfactory thing is that the people of Kashmir especially the youth of the valley have understood the dual nature of their policies," Singh said.
