Srinagar, June 30: Director General of Police (J&K) Dilbagh Singh Tuesday said that the former chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani has admitted in a letter sent by him to his all constituents that the “path chosen by him was wrong and people were using it for personal gains while the mission they were pursuing has failed.”
While talking to reporters after inaugurating the state-of-art women Police Station at Rajouri, DGP said “Geelani’s letter to his constituents is an eye-opener.
He has admitted that they have miserably failed their mission and Kashmir issue was used by the people for their personal gains”.
Singh added, “Geelani confessed that his path was wrong, and they were propagating negative thinking vis-à-vis Kashmir issue.”
On Monday, the former chairman of the Hurriyat Conference (G) announced parting ways from the amalgam citing the prevailing situation as the reason.
In his separate letter sent to the Hurriyat constituents, the aged leader had stated that some people sitting across LoC were violated the moral ethics of the amalgam and augmented links with ministers for their personal gains.
Geelani, in his letter, also accused members in the amalgam of resorting to “financial irregularities and taking decisions on behalf of him (Geelani) without his consent.”
Replying to a query whether there was any deadline set by the security forces to wipe out militancy from Kashmir in the coming months and to declare entire J&K as militancy free, the DGP said since Pakistan continues to push in militants, no time frame or deadline can be set for wiping out militancy.
“Our efforts are on to flush out militants and make J&K militancy free zone.
Yesterday, a last surviving militant from Doda district was killed in an encounter with the result Doda district is militancy free,” he said. (KNS)
