Asks people to understand the communal designs of government
Srinagar 21 Dec: Expressing deep concern over the methodology being adopted for the recruitment of police constables in the state, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has warned the government against adopting dirty ways and means to change the demography within the civil and police administration.
Ina statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “while the recruitment made in police department has been by and large fair but the norms fixed through the advertisement notice have fulfilled the vicious agenda of those forces who never think beyond communal lines.
The proposal to create two further border battalions in J&K is unacceptable and straight away aimed at decreasing the number of majority community in Jammu & Kashmir police.
Onewonders what does government mean by creating ‘Border Battalions’. J & K police has nothing to do with the surveillance of borders and it is primarily the duty of army and BSF to protect borders.
Ifthe government sincerely believes in empowering people of border areas , it must take up the issue with the central Govt. and ensure 60% reservation for residents of border areas in the ten lac army and BSF serving in J & K”.
However Er. Rasheed added that government will never do that as it is BJP not PDP ruling the state and nothing lies in the hands of Mehbooba Mufti. Er. Rasheed said “In fact BJP is implementing its agenda in letter and spirit and is adamant to corner the majority community in the state only for its vote bank.
If govt believes in empowering border residents by creating border battalions, one has a right to ask why cannot the government raise few south Kashmir oriented battalions as the youth in that part of the state feel completely alienated.
Letthe government recruit police constables at district level with population to be the criteria so that all sections of society feel accommodated and get their rights “Er. Rasheed cautioned Mehbooba Mufti about the possible consequences of the issue and appealed all sections of society to get together to fight for the rights of the majority community, which is being deprived tactfully in every field.
