The exposure of civilian killings allegedly in fake encounters by the personnel of special operation group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police has provided a whip to the opposition National Conference to lash at the ruling PDP-Congress coalition. The PDP in particular is the main target of the NC blitzkrieg.
NC President and MP Omer Abdullah on Saturday came down heavily on the PDP leadership and alleged that the last four years of the coalition rule has broken all records of human rights violations in the state.
He said that the PDP got votes from the people in the last assembly elections on the symbol of pen and inkpot "but they used the pen like sword to cut the throats of common people". "They have patronized the criminal element in police. The SP accused in Abdul Rahman Paddar's killing was brought from Kulgam to Ganderbal by the PDP leadership", he said.
"Enough is enough. We will not remain silent now. We will expose the criminal conduct of the PDP. They, on one hand, kill people and, on the other, visit their families to express sympathy with them", the NC president alleged.
Omer Abdullah chose to hit the PDP below the belt at the slain civilian's village Larnoo Kokernag. The NC president today visited Paddar's family in the village and held a massive protest rally.
The NC president sought enquiry into Paddar's killing by the CBI. He said that his party would not participate in the meetings of Working Groups unless human rights violations were completely stopped in the state.
