Asks Omer Abdullah to explain what he means by peace of 2014
Srinagar 03 July: Accusing PDP and NC of playing dirty with the people, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that both the parties showed cold shoulder to the suggestion that they must join hands to form the government in J&K in order to send a clear and louder message to New Delhi that Kashmiris are mature enough to decide what suits them. In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “It is unfortunate that both NC and PDP prefer to be like B Team of congress or BJP and they have lost their regional character and there is no battle of ideologies but that of egos and self interests. If NC and PDP need blessings of New Delhi and not of their people to form governments and alliances, one can ask a simple but serious question that how can either of them even talk of Kashmir dispute. While Mehbooba Mufti is herself responsible for what she is facing today, Omer Abdullah needs to answer what does he mean by saying that situation should return to that what it was in 2014. Praising governor administration and making 2014 a reference point it seems Omer Sahab wants governor regime to go all offensive against masses and shut their mouth at the barrel of gun. It is shameful that Omer Sahab rather talking of political resolution as a pre-requisite condition for restoration of peace is stressing on Governors rule, with the only intention that Governor administration should silence Kashmiris at the barrel of the gun so that in near future the may beg for Omer Abdullah to be given back the power. May one ask those seeking fresh elections that would angles come from the heavens and set everything a right after new government is formed. By not accepting the challenge to form the government most of the political parties have confessed either their incompetence or seem to be afraid of walking even an inch without blessings of BJP government”. Er. Rasheed added that conducting elections, forming government or brining state under governor rule has nothing to do with what is happening on the ground. However he said that the way New Delhi has been bundling rulers and throwing them into dustbin from time to time is a matter of concern for everyone including those not interested in electoral politics. Er. Rasheed reminded Omer Abdullah that before trying to create a perception about him being champion of peace, he should stop misleading New Delhi by not talking about the fact that people are on the streets not as they want him or someone else as Chief Minister but want a resolution to Kashmir dispute in its historic perspective.
