Kupwara: Legislator Er Rasheed has cautioned govt. not give an impression that it has done some favour to people of Handwara by removing the army bunker at main Chowk Handwara and added that the way local politicians are trying to get political dividends from the issue is condemnable. During his visit to various villages of Handwara on Thursday he praised people for their resistance against the state sponsored terrorism during last few days and added that it was all due to sacrifices of people of district Kupwara that govt. had to concede to their demands.
Removal of army bunker by no ways means justice to the martyrs as people of Kashmir have made huge sacrifices for the resolution of Kashmir issue. People will feel satisfied only when army will go back to barks in every village and town and GOI will sincerely come to the negotiating table for the resolution of Kashmir issue. It is in Indias own interest to resolve Kashmir dispute as delay in resolution not only gives India a bad name at the international forum but also has become an impediment in India becoming UNs prominent member.
Er Rasheed asked all political parties to stop cashing sacrifices and reminded them that people of Handwara and elsewhere have sacrificed for a bigger cause which leads to resolution of Kashmir issue.
