Dares NC to revive movement for right to self determination
Srinagar 08 Sept 2017. Urging National Conference leadership to show consistency, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has welcomed Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s stand on Article 35-A, but asked him not to repeat what suspicious and inconsistent role National Conference played since 1975. While interacting with various deputations in Srinagar today Er. Rasheed said that the two main regional parties will be held responsible for every erosion to the autonomy, special status and dilution of Kashmir cause. Er. Rasheed said “Whatsoever Dr. Farooq Abdullah is saying has to be seen in light of the historical events of the past. May Farooq Abdullah and his party explain what happened to the resettlement bill passed by the state assembly but was still dragged to Supreme Court and for the want of proper pleading it is now story of the past. Recently when PDP succumbed to BJP’s ego and ideology by thrusting GST on Jammu & Kashmir, NC played the most dubious role by keeping mum over the issue and not taking it to the public domain. NC being the oldest political party cannot run away by simply playing with the words but has to own the responsibility for the major erosions which have taken place all these decades. The records will reveal that either Farooq Sahab has changed his statements after regular intervals or Omer Abdullah has claimed that Farooq Sahab was misquoted, thus the party has ruined its credibility and helped New Delhi in maintaining the status-quo on political dispute”. Er. Rasheed expressed surprise over Farooq Abdullah’s comments that Central Govt. should find how money was pumped to weaken National Conference. He said “Why doesn’t Farooq Abdullah disclose all that what he wants New Delhi to reveal. He owes a responsibility to the people of the state to disclose if any secret deals had taken place in New Delhi to provide an alternate political plate form. If he doesn’t do so then one has a reason to believe that Farooq Abdullah is interested in only one thing that is how to maintain hegemony and supremacy of his dynasty over Kashmiris till doom’s day”. Er. Rasheed dared National Conference to revive the slogan of right to self determination and said that it would be the true tribute to Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah.
