People subject to inconvenience at Sadhna top, says Er Rasheed
Calls on corps commander to stop ‘unnecessary harassment’
Karnah: Urging army, police and civil administration to have mercy on people of Karnah, AwamiItehad Party (AIP) Chief Er. Rasheed asked the government to explain why every single person cutting across age and gender has to face humiliation and hardship for hours together at Sadhna top while travelling towards Karnah or vice versa.
Notably, the former legislator who is contesting the upcoming Parliamentary elections from north Kashmir exchanged words with the army officer at Sadhna top where dozens of vehicles including ambulance were put to a halt.
“In the name of so called entry they were being made to suffer for hours together due to this unwanted humiliating process which is there is practice since long and not only results in wastage of their precious time but their lives too are put to danger as the traffic jam so caused puts the vehicles prone to the threats of slides and avalanches,” Er. Rasheed said.
He said that he has brought the matter in the notice of corps commander after the incident and was assured of abolishing all those unnecessary checks and entries which would cause inconvenience to the masses.
Earlier while addressing a public gathering at TangdaarEr. Rasheed said that if Kartarpur corridor can be opened in Pujnab why should Kashmiris be punished for closing the traditional routes between two sides of Kashmir and if these links are opened the miseries of Kashmiris in general and those of far-flung areas of Karnah will come to an end.
Appreciating the people of Karnah for showing overwhelming response to the pro-people agenda of AIP, Er.Rasheed said that neither Mehbooba Mufti nor Sajad Lone or Omer Abdullah have a right to even seek votes from people of Karnah as all the three so called regional parties have derived pleasure and entertainment from the sufferings of people of Karnah.
“ If all these three parties who have remained in power from time to time could not provide a tunnel at the Sadhna top, construct a fear weather road between Chowkibal and Kanah and provide basic amenities to the people of Karnah and Karen they should feel ashamed while asking for votes in the entire Karnah constituency,” he said.
Er. Rasheed while seeking special package for border areas like Karnah, Gurez, Keren, Machil, Uri, Nowgam and PonchRajouri asked the government if Kashmrispandits are entitled to get benefitted from various schemes for being migrants, why should not hundreds of families in Karnah, Karen and Bore valleys be given special packages whose land and other movable assets have been destroyed by natural climate or army has occupied them when they were forced to migrate to other side of LOC in 1989.
Er. Rasheed who addressed more than a dozen rallies in Handwara and Kupwara assembly segments at Haftrada, Phalmarg, Taratpora, Keegam, Kandi and Nutnussa and thanked people for listening to him.
He reiterated that it is not possible for traditional politicians to stop a possible revolt against them and said that this parliament election will be beginning of a new era in the history of J&K.
Er. Rasheed also appealed Shah Faesal to support him for the larger interests of people of J&K.
“It is appropriate time when sincere pro people voices should come forward and push out the dynasty politics being trusted upon them by NC, PDP and PC,” he said.
