Seeks NC, PDP Support
SRINAGAR: Apprehending that his resolution seeking the return of the body of parliament attack convict, Mohammad Afzal Guru, to his family could be sabotaged, Independent legislator Engineer Rasheed today asked National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party to support the resolution.
Addressing a news conference here today Rasheed said,”Sixty-nine resolutions have been submitted in the assembly (to be taken up in the forthcoming session) and my resolution can or cannot be taken up. However, seeing the urgency of the issue, they (NC and PDP) should urge the speaker to take it up without balloting.”
Rasheed said that he would take back his resolution if a similar one is brought up by the leader of the house or leader of the opposition.
However he said that if the political parties get directions from the centre to sabotage the resolution, they would make every effort to do so.
Speaking about the detention of Syed Ali Geelani in Delhi, he said, an MP was not allowed to meet him. Politicians should understand what respect and privileges they enjoy.
