Srinagar, April 27 (UNI) Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari on Saturday said that the regional parties and their leaders established their own form of monarchy in Jammu and Kashmir after the end of Maharaja’s rule in 1947.

He asserted that those who continued to propagate provocative and misleading slogans like ‘Raishumari,’ ‘Autonomy’, and ‘Self-rule’ even after J&K’s accession with the country have
damaged the interests of the people of this land.

Bukhari made these comments while addressing an event to welcome the new members including prominent citizens and political workers from Charar-i-Sharief, and Ganderbal, into the party fold.

“This party’s agenda and policies are rooted in the politics of truthfulness and integrity of its leaders. We do not believe in deceptive narratives and fake promises for gaining political advantages,” he said.

"We had the chance to decide the future of Jammu and Kashmir in 1947 and the leadership at that time decided to accede with India. After this decision, whoever raised emotional slogans like ‘Raishumari’, ‘Autonomy’, and ‘Self-rule’ during the past seventy years were the enemies of the people. Unfortunately, the regional parties and their leaders used innocent people as cannon fodder through such emotional and provocative slogans. For their own political gains, these parties and leaders made our youth scapegoats by misleading them through deceptive narratives,” Bukahri said while taking a dig National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party


“These parties and their leaders led our youth down the path of destruction. Over the past three decades, we have tragically lost thousands of our youngsters. Thousands of our young people
ended up either in jails or in graveyards,” he said.
