Meanwhile, the former Srinagar mayor said that he did not agree with party’s “carte blanche to allow National Conference to absolve itself of its ingenuity and insincerity”, “Absolutely. I don’t agree with the party’s carte blanche to allow the National Conference to absolve itself of its ingenuity and insincerity – through history and today in the context of the post August 5th scenario.
