Attachment of Farooq Abdullah’s property by ED seen in Kashmir as an act of vendetta: Saifuddin Soz
A large section of Kashmiris understand that since he had condemned abrogation of Article 370 and resolved to fight it politically, it had created unease in important quarters at the Centre, he said
Former Union minister and senior Congress leader Prof Saifuddin Soz on Monday said that the attachment of Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s property by the Enforcement Directorate is seen in Kashmir as an act of vendetta.
“Former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has rightly reacted to the ED’s action of attaching properties of Dr. Farooq Abdullah saying that he would take recourse to agitating the matter in a court of law. That is perhaps the best course available to the family,” he said in a media statement.
“While the government is entitled to conduct investigation in the affairs of J&K Cricket Association, and the fraudulent practices that might have happened in funds, the ED’s immediate action is seen by people of Kashmir as an act of vendetta,” he said.
“A large section of Kashmiris understand that since the National Conference leader had condemned the abrogation of Article 370 as illegal and unconstitutional and resolved to fight it politically, it had created unease in important quarters at the Centre,” Soz added.
“One can understand that the NC will prefer recourse to legal action besides fighting the adversaries politically. My understanding is that the Union will have a tough time in convincing people on its credibility. The
people of Kashmir understand the Centre’s game of incarceration against the mainstream Kashmir politicians,” he said.
