Tarigami decries ED action against Farooq as “political vendetta’’

Jammu, December 19: The CPI (M) here on Saturday criticised the Enforcement Directorate (ED) action attaching the property of National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah, saying it is “nothing but a political vendetta as the BJP government has been unnerved by the support of people to Peoples’ Alliance for Gupkar Deceleration (PAGD) in the just concluded DDC polls’’.

Attaching the property of Dr Abdullah is part of “vindictive politics practiced by the Central government to kill dissent and disagreement across the country’’ and the present case has surfaced at a time when the District Development Council Polls have just concluded, said CPI (M) leader M Y Tarigami.

The BJP government must realise the dangers of witch-hunting and intimidation and desist from vindictive designs, he said, adding it is time for secular democratic forces across the country to raise their voice against such designs of the BJP government.
