Srinagar, April 27 : Terming the statement issued by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi as a cruel joke and unrealistic, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that issue of Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute and can’t be changed by these “false and arrogant” statements.
He said Modi is “absolutely ignorant” about the history and must shun his “ego and stubbornness” , accept the ground realities and come forward to address this basic issue according to the wishes and aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Out rightly rejecting Kashmir being an integral part of India, Hurriyat (G) chairman said that the glorious political history, geography and culture of Jammu and Kashmir has “a bright dissimilarity with the non-serious utterances” of the Prime Minister.
Terming Kashmir as an outcome of noncompliance of Indian Independence Act of 1947, Geelani laid stress on the early resolution of Kashmir issue by granting right to self-determination in a peaceful atmosphere.
He called for complete election boycott and shutdown on April 29 in Kulgam district.
“The poll boycott has frustrated the Indian leadership which can be well read from the Indian Prime Minister’s speech,” Geelani said.
