Reacting to the recent statement of hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani that Kejriwal and Modi are the faces of the same coin. "Like the roles of Farooq Abdullah and Mufti Sayed are dangerous and harmful for the Kashmir cause, so in the same way every person who will vote or support AAP or any other pro-Indian party, will commit an act of treason," Geelani had said.
 
“The corruption in Kashmir must end and for the same it is the need of the hour that someone within the system has to eradicate it,' Bhat said.

He said, "The people of Kashmir have witnessed the worst power crises and huge tariffs for the same and every time the people of valley had been promised, but nothing concrete was done so far”.
 
"I want to ask Geelani sahib, shouldn’t he want to end corruption, shouldn't people be given proper electricity, he said.
 
“I want to ask these leaders that who is going to rectify the power crises in Kashmir and who will strive so that the corruption could end,” Bhat said.
 
He added further that it is the policy of the separatists to speak against mainstream and the people of Kashmir must understand that AAP is fighting for their day to day issues within the system and it has noting do with the ideology of any political party here.
