Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir-based senior separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani resigned as the chairman of the Hurriyat Conference on Monday (June 29). He was a part of the Hurriyat Conference since 1993 and was appointed as the lifetime chairman of his faction in 2003.

In an audio message to the media, Geelani said, “In view of the current state of the Hurriyat Conference, I am announcing my complete dissociation from the forum. In this context, I have already sent a detailed letter to all constituents of the forum.”

In the detailed letter, he wrote to all the members of the separatist amalgam explaining his reason behind the resignation. He said, “The activities of these representatives were limited now to seeking access to assemblies and ministries for joining the government there (PoK). Some members were expelled while others started holding their meetings. These activities were endorsed by you (constituents) by holding a meeting here to endorse their decisions.”

Geelani said he was forced by the constituent parties to take the reins of Hurriyat conference in 2003. He was the chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat for almost 14 years before resigning and handing over the reins to his deputy and confidante Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai.

“I sent messages to you through various means so the next course of action could be decided but all my efforts were in vain. Now that the sword of accountability is hanging over your heads for the financial and other irregularities, you thought of calling the advisory committee meeting,” Geelani wrote.

“The lack of discipline and other shortcomings were ignored and you did not allow a robust accountability system to be established over the years but today, you have crossed all limits and indulged in rebellion against the leadership,” he further added.
