Uproot NC, PDP to end ‘politics of exploitation’: Er Rasheed to people
Srinagar: AwamiItehaad Party (AIP) president and former MLA Langate, Engineer Abdul Rasheed Sheikh on Tuesday asked National Conference (NC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop mud sliding at each other, saying people of J&K should wake up and uproot both of them, so that politics of hypocrisy, exploitation and deception comes to an end.
Reacting to allegations being levelled by Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti against each other in south Kashmir today, ErRasheed as per a statement issued here said, “Both have disrespected people’s mandate, diluted Kashmir cause and given New Delhi a free hand to carry on its policies of oppression and suppression through state terrorism.”
“Let Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti bring clarity in their goals and tell people either J&K is India’s integral part or a dispute that needs to be resolved. They must either side themselves with the masses or with New Delhi,” he said.
ErRasheed added that Omar and Mehbooba’s confusing stances on one hand are diluting Kashmir cause and creating false hopes in New Delhi that Kashmiris can be forced or persuaded to surrender and on the other hand their promises not to repeat mistakes of the past create a false hope among a large section of Kashmiris that they will represent them the way they promise or they deserve to be represented.
ErRasheed appealed people to make a choice once for all if they want to be trapped continuously between the duel policies of NC and PDP or truly want a leadership which would speak with consistency and sincerity and ask New Delhi and Islamabad to give Kashmiris right to self-determination.
“It is responsibility of masses not Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti to ensure that people don’t get cheated every time by the traditional politicians. No one should expect NC and PDP to talk about issues which are mainly created by them only,” he said.
He added that if masses on one hand continue to abuse main stream parties but still vote for them, which is the only thing they require, why people should be so angry and disappointed with them after they bring them to power.
ErRasheed appealed people to unite and reject both NC and PDP so that New Delhi is made to understand that its hidden proxies cannot rule, always run away and leave Kashmiris to death and destruction.
