Srinagar: Awami Itthihaad Party(AIP) Saturday termed lodging of FIR into alleged copying scam involving son of senior Congress leader and a state Minster Pirzada Mohammad Syeed a good step.
Party President Er Rashid in a statement maintained that delay in lodging FIR speaks itself about the political pressure that crime branch had been facing since last two years.
He said, The Chief Minister must explain that why it took two years to lodge the FIR ,when the report was submitted to him within seven days after that scam had surfaced .lodging of FIR though late and despite political pressures proves that crime branch couldnt close the case as the evidences were concrete to confirm the involvement of ministers son and board officials .He asked Peerzada Mohammad Syeed to step down immediately and if he doesnt have moral courage to resign, Omar Abdullah must show some morality and seriousness to throw him out. He alleged that neither Peerzadas son is the first blue-eyed person to misuse the authority of his father nor will be the last as almost all political leaders and bureaucrats have inherited these qualities of misusing their authority and power at the cast of common masses.
