Srinagar: Independent MLA representing Langate, Engineer Rasheed on Tuesday ridiculed the statement of CM Ms Mehbooba Mufti in which she had said that “only 5% of people are responsible” for current situation in Kashmir.
“In love of Sangh Parivar,” Rasheed said in a statement, “Mehbooba Ji has forgotten that her appeasement speech in Jammu has hurt every Kashmiri even her own those who have voted her to power.”
“If only five percent people are with the on-going uprising, may CM and her other cabinet colleagues explain why they need to impose curfew in entire Kashmir and get more troops to suppress the voice of masses,” Rasheed asked.
“CM has hurt the sentiments of even those who voted for her by agreeing to her then arguments that in order to stop BJP, people must vote PDP. But it is now ironical that she has spoken at Jammu against the sentiment of her own voters by claiming that Kashmiris in masses are not with the sentiment but has also alleged that they want to spread communal tension in Jammu province, which is highly condemnable,” the MLA Langate said.
He accused both NC and PDP of using their all skills and efforts to “dilute the real issue” and said, “had Omar Abdullah taken a tough stand while meeting PM Modi and others, Modi would never have dared to offer talks within ambits of constitution of India and similarly if Mehbooba Ji rather shamefully accusing and abusing Kashmiris would have asked New Delhi to initiate dialogue in light of historic perspective and UN resolutions, it would have been a realistic and genuine approach. But both these parties seem to have surrendered not only their own limited agendas but are keen bent to force Kashmiris for yet other surrender.” (CNS)
