Srinagar, Dec 8: Former Union Minister Saifuddin Soz and the President of J&K Pradesh Congress Committee on Monday, Dec 8 said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally at Srinagar turned out to be highly unimpressive.
"After a great fanfare, PM Narendra Modi's rally at Srinagar turned out to be highly unimpressive and to add insult to injury, he want
to take credit for things which have either not happened or had happened with his contribution", he said in a statement.
Reports claimed that at the most in Modi's rally, 2500 people turned out after a great effort in the length and breadth of Kashmir to
"To say the least PM Modi's speech was highly disjoined and the content was mere propaganda", he said.
"First of all, Mr Modi is not aware of what the then Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee meant by saying that Kashmir question would be resolved within the parameters of INSANIYAT.
Modi very widely recognized a strong votary of abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. How can he talk of solution within the Parameters of INSANIYAT. His silence on Article 370 at this time speaks volumes on his perception of Kashmir problem. Unfortunately, he does not know how to set a limit to his propaganda about things", he said.
"While it is true that Army went wrong in opening fire in many situations, it is also true that the Army apologized many times for
its wrong actions and that had happened long before Mr Modi was on the scene."
Mr Modi forgot that before Nowgam incident, the Army had warded punishment to five Jawans of the Army in a fake encounter at Machil (Kupwara). He also did not know that it was CBI which had found Army guilty in Fake Machil Encounter and had wanted further enquiry by the Court.
It was then that the Army instituted Court Martial and found the Army guilty and awarded Punishment. In his (Modi's) enthusiasm to take credit for everything he exhibited his taste for running down his government's own Institutions.
Modi's assertion that he represents 120 Cores of People of India is a cruel joke which only he could crack. He should be
conscious of the fact all the time that despite his majority in the Lok Sabha, he had got 31% of the votes and 69% electorates
of India had voted against him.
