Governor crossing his domain, his own appointment is unconstitutional: Er. Rasheed
Karnah: Reminding J&K Governor Satpal Malik not to forget that even his own appointment as Governor of J&K is unconstitutional as per instrument of temporary accession, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that Governor’s revelations and concerns about ill governance, backdoor entries and other administrative failures are nothing new but whatsoever has been happening here during past seventy years has the full patronage of New Delhi.
“Those ruling the state have made fortunes out of sufferings of Kashmiri people with full consent of New Delhi, only to ensure that its proxies enjoy a wealthy and charming life,” the Langate legislator said.
While talking to the mourners at the residence of Ashiq Hussain Zargar at Tulwari Langate today who was killed along with with Manan Wani few days ago, Er. Rasheed said “Governor by his daily based untruthful statements on behest of New Delhi is trying to prove that Kashmir dispute is about governance but the fact is that J&K dispute is a political issue and needs a resolution through right to self determination.”
“Let Mr. Malik not forget that a particular class of politicians and bureaucrats have been given free hand all the times to suppress voices of masses. The job of the governor is not to speak about political issues but he has a limited role till the democratically elected government is in place. Whatsoever Mr. Malik is speaking day in and day out is not his domain and he is just speaking only what his masters in New Delhi ask him to speak. Does S.P Malik not know that J&K had its own prime minster and president rather getting someone like Satpal Malik as governor thrust upon them.”
Er. Rasheed dared Governor to probe the assets of IAS and IPS officers also who have been serving here and like few Kashmiri local officers they too have taken undue advantage of political dispute.
Later in the day while interacting with various deputations in Karnah valley Er. Rasheed while reacting to Bipin Rawat’s claim that Pakistan is taking revenge of India’s role in independence of Bangladesh by supporting Kashmiris said that Mr. Rawat has spoken partial truth.
He said “Mr. Rawat should not forget that Pakistan is a party to the dispute and one third of J&K is under control of Pakistan, as such Pakistan has to be taken on board for the final settlement. Mr. Rawat knows better that from UN resolutions to Shimla and Tashkand agreements Pakistan has been accepted as one of the stake holders to the J&K dispute. However, if Mr. Rawat really feels Pakistan is creating trouble in Kashmir to take revenge of India’s role in partition of Pakistan then he must collect courage to own the guilt of getting more than one lakh Kashmiris killed and huge properties destroyed in J&K.
