Receives heroic welcome in Uri, addresses more than a dozen rallies
Uri April 4: Hailing people of Uri for their overwhelming response to AIP’s agenda of innovative and creative politics AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that people have rejected sectarian, regional and ethnic politics. While addressing more than a dozen rallies in Rafiabad and Uri Er. Rasheed said that people of Border areas are most misunderstood citizens of J&K as they have suffered on either sides of the LOC. Er. Rasheed said “Today’s response in Uri and other adjoining areas should be an eye opener for those who often claim that Kashmiris can be bribed or misled by anyone. People have grown mature and the sacrifices and sufferings of seventy years have made them politically mature and they can easily differentiate between their friends and foes. Those claiming to be landlords and princes of Uri should explain why Uri didn’t get its due share from NHPC and other mega projects which have benefitted no one except few families and blue eyed white collar bureaucrats and politicians. Those trying to gain sympathy on sectarian lines are the biggest enemies of Kashmiris and are agents of New Delhi. While New Delhi has a deep agenda by creating ethnic and sectarian divide, these narrow-minded individuals are playing cheap politics just for getting votes without realizing the consequences of their dirty politics”. Er. Rasheed said that the overwhelming response being shown by people of north Kashmir has unnerved not only the regional parties but their masters everywhere. He said “What Kashmiris need is a genuine honorable and acceptable resolution to seventy year long political dispute, end of animosity between New Delhi and Islamabad and a corruption free governance till final resolution of Kashmir dispute. However unfortunately the regional parties do not talk about Kashmir issues once the elections are over. However in the season of elections they try to be hardliners than Salah-ud-din, Geelani Sahab and Asiya Indrabi. Time has come to replace all these proxies and enemies of common man who have brought nothing except miseries and nepotism. It is proper time to give AIP and chance and ensure that voice of Kashmiris doesn’t go unheard within and outside India”. Er. Rasheed while reacting to the shameful orders of the government prohibiting vehicular traffic on Jammu Srinagar Highway on two days during a week has said that this is the worst kind of dictatorship but the architects of such barbarian and inhumane orders should realize that it exposes New Delhi’s claims of J&K situation being under control. He said that despite claiming to be the superpower New Delhi has failed to provide a world class road link between Jammu & Srinagar. Since the road has lost its utility and to hide the failures government is now giving lame excuses to show its colonial mind set, however all such nefarious and sick minded decisions will be resisted by masses.
