Srinagar, Jan 19: Sajad Gani Lone, Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference, wrote a letter to PAGD President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday claiming that his party is no longer part of the PAGD.
Sajad Lone claimed in his letter, a copy of which lies with the Kashmir News Observer (KNO) news agency, that the PAGD’s intent and feelings were not being pursued on the ground.
Sacrifice was necessary for this alliance. In terms of giving room to fellow allies, every party had to sacrifice on the field. No party is prepared to cede space, no party is prepared to sacrifice.
In Kashmir Province, we fought against each other, not against the August 5 perpetrators. And those who perpetrated August 5 and their supporters are now vocally satisfied,’ says Sajad Lone in his letter. He further mentioned that holding on and pretending as if nothing had happened is difficult for them. A breach of confidence between partners has occurred which we believe is beyond remedy.
