Kashmiris have rejected Vajpayee’s formula ….Er. Rasheed
Handwara 26 April: Ridiculing Mehbooba Mufti for her claim that Modi
Govt. would follow Vajpayee’s policy on Jammu & Kashmir, AIP Supremo
and MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed has said that Kashmiris have rejected
Vajpayee’s policy in Kashmir and those praising Vajpayee are trying to
mislead none but themselves. Addressing a public meeting at Sochalyari
today Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti and others who are talking much
about Vajpayee’s Kashmir policy to explain what was Vajpayee’s Kashmir
formula. Er. Rasheed said neither was Vajpayee in favour of UN
resolutions nor has he shown willingness to leave entire J&K as an
independent state. His only mission was to engage Kashmiris into
futile talks and get them tired and pitch them against each other by
creating confusions and doubts. There is nothing special in Vajpayee’s
Kashmir mission except adding to the confusion. Mehbooba Mufti while
talking much about Vajpayee’s Kashmir mission is hiding her failures.
If New Delhi is really sincere to initiate dialogue process it must
end all operations against militant outfits and declare a unilateral
seize fire before offering unconditional talks to militant leadership
who are the real custodians of huge sacrifices”. Er. Rasheed added
that there is no fun to indulge into formal talks whatsoever, unless
Govt. of India doesn’t reveal what it has to offer to Kashmiris. Er.
Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti not to make illogical claims and added
that everybody must realise that Kashmiris will agree to nothing less
than right to self determination.
