HandwaraAIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has blamed congress and BJP for forcing Joint Resistance leadership to reject the talk offer for resolution of Kashmir issue.
While interacting with various deputations at Handwara today, Er Rasheed said that while P-Chitambram made untimely and unwanted comments about restoration of Autonomy, BJPs response was equally unfortunate.
He said Let all the stake holders understand that sincerity and commitment are the primary condition for making talks a success. Imposing conditions has neither yielded anything in the past nor may yield anything in the future. It is high time for the main national parties to create a conducive atmosphere so that all the stake holders are made to come on the negotiating table to find out a durable and amicable resolution to the seventy year long Kashmir dispute.
He appealed BJP and congress not to use Kashmir card in getting votes in rest of India and realize the huge sufferings and sacrifices of people of Jammu & Kashmir.
Er Rasheed also asked NC and PDP to persuade their alliance partners congress and BJP respectively to adopt a realistic attitude so that Huriyat and other stake holders find it easy to have a meaningful dialogue which can be extended by including Pakistan also in the final settlement of the dispute.
