Centre funding separatists: Sagar
|Srinagar: The J&K works minister, Ali Muhammad Sagar, today accused the centre of funding various mainstream opposition parties and separatist organizations to weaken the National Conference in J&K. ‘We are neither Pakistani agents nor Indian agents, but only the well-wishers and servants of the state people’, he told a big public meeting. Launching a blistering attack on what he described as the Hindu fanatic groups, the minister condemned the continued violence and killings in Gujarat. He accused VHP and Bajrang Dal of fomenting trouble saying these groups were responsible for the massacre of Muslims in the state. He asked the centre to put an immediate end to violence and safeguard the lives and properties of minorities in the BJP-ruled state. "Conspiracies are being hatched this time in what he described as ‘Delhi durbar’ against Jammu and Kashmir’s identity particularly against National Conference like in 1977", he said, adding Delhi was playing several cards against the state’s ruling party.
