Union minister Jitendra Singh slams Farooq Abdullah's defence of Kashmiri stone-pelters

Farooq Abdullah has backed stone pelters and asserted that they were doing nothing but fighting for their nation. But the person, who is pelting stone, has nothing to do with tourism. They do it for the sake of nation.

Taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government, Abdullah had earlier this week earlier come out in support of stone pelters in Kashmir. "He is not connecting with tourism", Abdullah, who is NC-Congress candidate for Srinagar-Budgam parliamentary seat, said while addressing party workers, here.

"J&K National Conference has all along worked for the welfare of displaced people and initiated several measures to make their life comfortable in and outside camps in Jammu and elsewhere in the State", Dhar said while interacting with the people. "This needs to be understood", Abdullah said at an election meeting in Sonawar constituency here. Abdullah added that a third party should intervene to resolve the issue "before our nuclear bombs drop there (in Pakistan) or their nuclear bombs will drop here". "A politician of the stature of Abdullah has also come under pressure of upcoming polls and therefore has felt tempted to speak the language of the separatists", Singh told reporters outside Parliament.

Farooq Abdullah said, "Youth who are pelting stones have nothing to do with tourism".

"Every conscientious individual and organization in Kashmir - whether mainstream or separatist - should have the ultimate aim of facilitating a resolution of the political issue to give relief, hope and peace to our people".

"New Delhi cannot remain invested in the status-quo on the Kashmir issue and all possible methods of engagement and facilitation could be explored in the quest for a lasting resolution".

"India has been telling the world community that it will hold dialogue with Pakistan to resolve Kashmir issue".
