Srinagar: Hizbul Mujahideen district commander for Pulwama Dr Abrar Ahmad has said PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference chief Omar Abdullah can not befool the people with their misleading slogans. Dr Abrar said the masses have not offered sacrifices for participation in elections but for freedom, Kashmir Times reported. He said Mehbooba and Omar wear green and red caps respectively. 'They also raise emotional slogans and try to give an impression that they are sympathetic towards freedom fighters. But people will not get misled by their gimmicks. He added that nothing short of freedom is acceptable to Kashmiris. People must disassociate themselves from elections to show the world that they want to take the ongoing movement to its logical conclusion, the district commander said.
