New Delhi disgraced elected representatives in Kashmir, says Er. Rasheed
AIP chief and MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed Saturday said that centre’s response to Supreme Court on Kashmir issue has yet again exposed New Delhi’s casual attitude and insincerity in resolving the issue.
According to a statement issued here Rasheed was addressing various public meetings in his constituency today.
“Although Supreme Court has no right and domain to force Kashmiris its view on an internationally recognized political issue, but whatsoever Attorney General said in Supreme Court is nothing but distortion and denial of facts,” Er. Rasheed said
He said that Even if central government’s response to talk to elected representatives is analysed on merits, there is every reason to conclude that New Delhi is short of ideas and wants just to consume time.
Rasheed questioned New Delhi about the plight of elected representatives in the valley. Citing his own example, he said, “If New Delhi really cares about elected representatives, why is Er. Rasheed being labeled as Pakistani agent for talking about Kashmir dispute time and again at the floor of the house? If New Delhi cares so much about elected representatives, why was Afzal Guru’s resolution seeking clemency sabotaged, what happened to the autonomy resolution passed with two third majority in the assembly? What happened to return of power projects and revocation of AFSPA which has been the long pending demand of MLA’s cutting across party lines”?
He asked New Delhi not to bring more shame to its reputation by playing card of elected representatives. He reminded New Delhi about the fact that he being an elected public representative is not being allowed to visit Jammu region even to attend social functions.
“Attorney General should have told Supreme court how despite four high court orders state police is not allowing me to have a free, peaceful, political activity in Jammu Province and few parts of Kashmir Valley”, He said.
Er. Rasheed accused New Delhi of just misleading the facts and creating confusions.
“Supreme Court has nothing to do with political resolution of Kashmir dispute and asking Kashmiris not to seek right to self determination is the violation of United Nation Charte,” He said.
