Let Kashmiris unite to get IIT, IIM
Srinagar: Independent MLA Er Rashid has appealed the civil society to wake up against the injustices being done to Kashmiris.
Addressing a meeting of party workers in Handwara, Er Rashid accused mainstream political parties of digging grave of Kashmiris interest by acting as collaborators and mouth pieces of New-Delhi.
Er Rashid said Not only that a huge sacrifices offered by Kashmiris are tactfully being rendered waste but the much hyped PMs financial package has proved to be like stabbing from behind.
The details provided by the Chief Minister about breakup of the package reveal not only establishing IIT and IIM in Jammu but also establishing of AIIMS in the Jammu region. Mufti and others owe an explanation that why should be Kashmir Province deprived from IIT and IIM.
He added The govt. has offered a huge financial package to west Pakistani Refugees and Kashmiri Pandits who still call themselves as migrants despite the fact that they get jobs in Kashmir.
New Delhi has to explain that if it can honour Kashmiri Pandits with all that what they want, why it couldnt spend a penny on the rehabilitation of internally displaced Muslims of Valley, Doda and Poonch regions.
It is ironic that those Kashimiri Pandits who call themselves as migrants do get jobs to serve in Kashmir thus proving that their migration drama was more to get perks, privileges and jobs rather to ensure their better security, the MLA said.
The figures reveal that govt has added salt to the injuries of flood victims. The package is just an eye wash and the projects and sectors were money is supposed to be spend in five years were to be taken in hand under normal discourse from time to time.
He appealed for a broad based consensus among Kashmiris for future course of action with reference to these extra important issues. Er Rashid also proposed a peaceful, organised and collective public campaign to seek IIT and IIM for Kashmir and dignified rehabilitation of flood victims.
