Sumbal, Aug 31: People’s Democratic Party Sarpanch and Block President from Sonawari Constituency of North Kashmir’s Bandipora district Wednesday claimed that some PDP workers get the innocent youth arrested and after demanding money from the parents ensure their release from the police stations.
“Its shocking that police is getting money from some PDP workers and release the arrested youth. First these PDP workers get these youth arrested, then they demand money and give a share from it to police for their release. This is a big mafia that needs to be exposed,” PDP Block President Sumbal Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri told news agency CNS adding that PDP workers have become the brokers of police.
He said that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti during her election campaign had promised peaceful protesters will never be harmed. “Even those youth are being hunted and arrested who staged peaceful protests in different areas of Sonawari Constituency including Shadipora, Shilwat and Wangipora. The ugliest part is that some PDP workers have become active and are minting money from the hapless poor parents. This is not what PDP stands for. I have decided to resign from the party,” he said.
Qadri said that the present situation clearly indicates that PDP in connivance with BJP is hell-bent to ruin the careers of Kashmiri youth. “I want to remind Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti what she used to say during her election campaigns in Sonawari Constituency and what she is doing now. She has digressed from her path and it has brought a bad name to the party that I supported and belonged to,” he said and added that he will resign from the party. (CNS)
