Lone said, "I urge the NC leadership simply to provide a transparent account of their parliamentary achievements for the public good. For the duration of their tenure in Parliament, particularly post-August 5, they acted as silent spectators, neglecting to advocate for our people's rights and aspirations. Their inaction disqualifies them from seeking re-election to Parliament."

Expressing the importance of the ongoing election, Lone emphasised its significance as the most crucial since 1947, especially given the absence of assembly elections.

Referring to the rigging of 1987, he asserted that the NC bears responsibility for the emergence of the gun culture and subsequent bloodshed in Kashmir."The social divide in Kashmir was starkly evident," he said.

"One segment of the population endured relentless persecution: killings, torture, hangings, and constant trauma during checking, verifications, and crackdowns. This represented the vast majority, of which I am a part. In contrast, the NC represents the one percent who have been victors and exploited the rest,” Lone said.

He continued, emphasising the repercussions of choosing such oppressors as representatives. "We cannot afford to continue selecting NC to lead us. Doing so would mean perpetuating the shackles of slavery on our society," PC President said.

"I pledge that once I enter Parliament, every oppressive law instituted by the National Conference will be eradicated. We refuse to compromise on our dignity," Lone vowed.

In a swipe at Omar Abdullah, Lone highlighted the stark contrast between his roots and those of Omar, whom he described as a tourist. He noted that Omar's oppressive regime has earned him notoriety and disqualifies him from claiming to be a savior of the people.
