Pattan, Baramulla, Apr 18 (UNI) National Conference (NC) President Omar Abdullah today accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of using ''threatening posters in the name of Hizbul Mujaideen'' in the Assembly constituencies of north Kashmir's Baramulla district where by-elections will be held on April 24, to harass the voters.
However, he said the Hizbul Mujahideen acted swiftly and denied publishing such ''threatening posters''.
Addressing an election meeting here, Mr Abdullah also accused former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed of complicating the Kashmir issue.
''Mufti Sayeed is engaged in complicating the Kashmir issue for a pretty long time and in fact indulging in acts which will make it further complex,'' he added.
The NC President also came down heavily on Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti, saying ''her waving a green handkerchief was a perfect way of enacting a political drama''.
He said the positive initiatives taken by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf will definitely help in finding a permanent and amicable solution to the vexed Kashmir issue in the near future.
The people of Jammu and Kashmir were hopeful that Dr Singh and Gen Musharraf will give the necessary impetus to efforts aimed at resolving the long-festering issue, Mr Abdullah added.
