Srinagar, Jan 16: Seeking unconditional release of Bilal Kawa, arrested by Delhi Police AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed today rocked state Assembly over the issue and said that security agencies outside state leave no stone unturned to harass Kashmiris and destroy their future.
As soon as House began its proceedings on Tuesday morning, Er. Rasheed got up and raised the issue and quoted the version of State police confirming Bilal’s innocence.
Rasheed said that if Bilal Kawa was truly wanted by Delhi police in 2000 Bomb Blast Case, Government must tell the House why didn’t Delhi police communicate even once to state government about Bilal being wanted.
The records reveal that Delhi police has never made any communication with J&K Police about Bilal’s involvement, who was never an absconder and was frequently travelling Delhi. The silence of Delhi police for 17 years is itself a proof of his innocence.
Rasheed asked NC legislators not to talk of morality and state terrorism and reminded them of their criminal role in dozens of cases like that of Bilal Kawa. Later Rasheed ended his protest when Government promised to come out with a statement over the issue in the House.
Later in his budget speech Engineer Rasheed questioned sincerity of central Government over supporting Palestinians and said that on one side New Delhi supported Palestinians in United Nation but on the other side invited Nitin Yahoo and Modi Ji gave him big hugs and even broke the protocol, thus adding salt to the injuries of billions of Muslims all over the world.
Nitin Yahoo’s visit has exposed hypocrisy of BJP Government, he said.
Rasheed demanded disbanding of legislative council and said that it has no significance or moral sanctity except being a rehabilitation centre for those who lose elections and other blue eyed persons.
Er Rasheed also lashed out at Govt. for creating extra constitutional posts like nominating vice chairmen for various corporations and boards thus not only creating a system within the system but also causing huge financial burden on state exchequer. (CNS)
