SRINAGAR: Awami Ittehad Party chief and independent MLA Er Rasheed Friday reacted to Mehbooba Muftis remarks that accession of 1947 was not with a party but with every Indian.
Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti to stop insulting Kashmiris and reminded her that the instrument of accession was conditional and people of J&K are least bothered who rules India and with whom she forms govt, a statement issued by the party read.
He said, If she believes that there is no difference between BJP, RSS and others then why did she and her father sought votes to stop BJPs entry into Kashmir. The Mufti dynasty has been criticizing Sheikh Abdullah all these years and now praising Sheikh Abdullah to justify her alliance with BJP is silly and amounts to exploiting the people of the state by changing colors as per requirement to be in power. Kashmiris want plebiscite and nothing less, Mehbooba should stop acting as mouth piece of New Delhi.
Rasheed ridiculed Mehboobas statement over what is happening in Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and elsewhere in Muslim world.
He said. Who doesnt know, who is pushing Muslim world to take up arms and everybody knows that Indian agencies are also leaving no stone unturned to force Indian Muslims to radicalisation. Doesnt Mehbooba know who forced Kashmiris to take up gun in their hands? Mehbooba should know that it were not people of Iraq, Egypt, Libya or Afghanistan who raised the revolt against their popular government but was all engineered by the West and its allies.
MLA Langate said that every country, region and religion has passed through the phase what Muslim world is facing today and like others the Islamic world will come out of the situation and Mehbooba is too small to give sermons to Muslim world by speaking Sang Parivars language.
Doesnt Mehbooba know that India is facing not only revolt, insurgency and armed movements in every state but there are thousands and thousands of militants roaming free in Naxal hit and North-East States, he said.
Hindu sponsored terrorism and caste politics has brought India to the verge of disintegration. What Raj Thakray and others are doing in Maharatra and elsewhere, should make Mehbooba to realise that there are already states within the state in India. He said and asked Mehbooba to introspect and behave with some sense of responsibility.
Mehbooba being Treated as Ad hoc CM by Delhi: NC
SRINAGAR: National Conference Friday expressed shock at the bypassing of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in a high-level meeting chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on Thursday to discuss various issues pertaining to the State.
Instead of the elected Chief Minister, New Delhi invited the J&K Governor for the high-level meeting to discuss various key issues pertaining to the State. This is yet another sign of how Mehbooba Mufti has bartered the constitutional mandate and sanctity of the Chief Ministers office to remain in her chair. This brazen dis-empowerment of the States Chief Minister is an alarming development, National Conference Chief Spokesperson Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said in a statement issued here by the party.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh chaired the meeting in New Delhi to discuss various key issues pertaining to the State including the issues of rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandit migrants, return of civilian land by the army, the security situation in the State post the Handwara and Kupwara tragedy and the situation along the Line of Control.
