Srinagar: Jammu & Kashmir Peoples Conference (J&KPC) Chairman Sajad Gani Lone on Friday ridiculed former chief minister Omar Abdullah over his ‘good’ and ‘bad’ political remarks. Lone highlighted the hypocrisy within the National Conference (NC) and their shifting alliances and differing perspectives depending on their position of power. 

Lone addressed the notion of “Good BJP” and “Bad BJP,” drawing attention to the dynamics of NC’s relationship with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 

“When the NC is in alliance with the BJP and the “touristy prince” makes a saffron debut by being the first Kashmiri to join the union cabinet led by the BJP – that is what we call the Good BJP. And it is so good to be the poster boy of the Good BJP. When NC is rebuffed, and not entertained by the BJP – that is the Bad BJP.”

Referring to recent statements from the Shiv Sena unit indicating support for NC in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, Lone coined the terms “Good Shiv Sena” and “Bad Shiv Sena.”

 “When NC was in alliance with the Shiv Sena – in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) from 1999-2002. or in the current INDIA alliance – that is the Good Shiv Sena. And the Good Shiv Sena will support NC in the ongoing parliament elections. However, when the NC is not in alliance with the Shiv Sena – it is the Bad Shiv Sena. Which in that case is rabidly communal, original Hindutva and of course the planner and executor in chief of the bloody Mumbai riots where hundreds of Muslims were killed”, he added.

Lone further dissected the dichotomy between “Good Kashmiris” and “Bad Kashmiris” stating that “all those Kashmiris who vote for the NC are the Good Kashmiris.  They are angels who have descended from the skies. As per voting data that is 25% of Kashmiri’s. And those Kashmiri’s who vote against the NC are sellouts, traitors, agents of central agencies and they are stooges of BJP. As per voting data, that is 75% of Kashmiris.”

Lone while highlighting the changing perspectives of the NC on PSA further said that “When the NC is in power and thousands of people in Kashmir are booked under PSA and packed to jails — it is the Good PSA and a Good Law. And it is the need of the hour and so essential to save Kashmir. And so thankful the NC is to Sheikh Sahib for having the vision to invent a law as draconian as the PSA.  And make no mistakes while in power, no question of repealing the PSA”.

He added, “When the NC is not in power, people booked under PSA and packed to jails – it is the Bad PSA. And while the NC is out of power the PSA should be repealed”.

Lone further added that “When NC was in power and people used to be arrested and subjected to third degree torture – that was Good Torture,and the need of the hour. When the female members meaning sisters or daughters or mothers of the allegedly absconding persons were picked up by the NC regime, as a bargain tactic to make them surrender, that was a part of Good Torture. That was a good strategy. And when NC is not in power, all hell breaks loose and standard policing becomes Bad Torture”, he concluded.
