Sameer Kaul, former spokesman of the PDP, who yesterday joined the National Conference (NC), today accused his former party of not fulfilling its promise to resettle Kashmiri Pandits and said they had been left at the mercy of the Centre.

Kaul made an emotional address before the media in the city here as he tried to galvanise support for the NC ahead of the upcoming bypoll for two parliamentary constituencies in Kashmir. He lashed out at the PDP, which he had previously represented as its national spokesman, and accused it of not doing anything in the interest of Kashmiri Pandits.

He described the NC as a “movement” and said his joining the region’s oldest political party was his “homecoming”.

“The National Conference still has relevance even though it has made mistakes in the past. It is relevant because it has been a movement which represented the aspirations of the underdeveloped and poor in Kashmir,” he said.

Kaul had joined the PDP in 2011. He was subsequently assigned the task of the party’s national spokesman. He resigned from the PDP in 2015, immediately after it formed a coalition government with the BJP. Kaul also accused the PDP of “stealing from the plate” of separatists by hijacking their agenda.
