Srinagar: Accusing the ruling National Conference of having lost its credibility, hardline Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday said the Centre was trying its best to "bail out" the party in Jammu and Kashmir.

"New Delhi is finding it difficult to find a replacement for National Conference and hence started supporting the party," Geelani said. "This is not 1975 but 2010 and on Monday it is not very easy to deceive the people of Kashmir," he added.
