Srinagar|Dec,21: Former Union Minister Prof Saif Ud Din Soz on Monday called the attachment of National Conference President late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah an action of vendetta.
In a statement issued on Monday Prof Soz said “ the attachment of Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s property by the Enforcement Directorate is seen in Kashmir as an action of Vendetta”, adding that “former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has rightly reacted to the ED’s action of attaching properties of Dr. Farooq Abdullah saying that he would take recourse to agitating the matter in a court of Law. That is perhaps, the best course available to the family”.
Maintaining that While the Govt. is entitled to conduct investigation in the affairs of J&K Cricket Association, and the fraudulent practices that might have happened in funds, Soz said “the ED’s immediate action is seen by people of Kashmir as an act of vendetta as a large section of Kashmiris understand that since the National Conference leader had condemned the abrogation of Article 370 as illegal and unconstitutional and resolved to fight it politically, it had created unease in important quarters at the Centre”.
Soz furrther said ” One can understand that the NC will prefer recourse to legal action besides fighting the adversaries politically. My understanding is that the Union will have a tough time in convincing people on its credibility”, adding that “the people of Kashmir understand the Centre’s game of incarceration against the Mainstream Kashmir politicians.”
