New Delhi [India] Apr.30 (ANI): Condemning National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah's remark on Kupwara attack, the National Panthers Party (NPP) on Sunday held the former and his party responsible for the prevailing 'nuisance' situation in Jammu and Kashmir. "He is the one who creates all the nuisance in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Farooq Abdullah has been getting all the benefit of time, right from whatever his father did or the people of Kashmir sacrificed for. How he became the Member of Parliament today, nobody talks about it. He didn't even get 3.5 percent votes. He can speak anything he likes," NPP leader Bhim Singh told ANI. Singh also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the growing tension in the state, asking, why till now the situation has not been controlled. "He (Farooq Abdullah) and his party are one among, those who is responsible for creating the present situation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The credit goes to Prime Minister Modi as it was his responsibility to amend the Article 370 and integrate the state of Jammu and Kashmir. What happened now, the entire Parliament is with him and the entire country is with him, what happened now?" he said. Earlier on Saturday, Abdullah courted another controversy by saying, "The noise is not so much about 25 CRPF jawans getting killed in Chhattisgarh, rather, the noise is about three army men killed in Kupwara. They are beating the drum to increase hatred towards Muslims, please keep this in mind." "Now a days, new tricks are being played, be careful. This is not an attack on particular sect of people, but on all of us," he added. The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister also slammed the Centre for banning Internet and other social media services in the Kashmir Valley. "I called on the government and told them don't take such types of measures. They are mistaken that the by imposing ban, conditions will improve. The situations will not improve until and unless talks are not held with all. They think they can suppress us with force. The more they try to suppress it, the more fire it will create," he said.
