Says strengthening AIP is the only way out
Handwara, 27 May: Reiterating his appeal to masses to support AIP, Er. Rasheed has said that People of J&K don’t have a better sincere option other than AIP to represent their sentiment and sacrifices and to provide them a corruption free governance. Addressing a gathering of party workers from Handwara and Langate constituencies, organized to thank people of these two constituencies, Er. Rasheed said “despite all odds and reservations people of Handwara have endorsed AIP’s stand and a strong base has been laid for strengthening the party at the gross root level, however one needs to realize and understand that AIP has an agenda that is the voice of masses and their inner conscience despite the fact many of them may have compulsions to stand with AIP for the time being. NC, PDP and PC are wasted cards and they will never ever speak anything that may hurt or hit the interests of their masters in New Delhi. At the time when New Delhi is going to get a new government and India Pakistan seem to be heading towards breaking some ice, Kashmiris need a sincere, committed and honest leadership which should ensure that neither India nor Pakistan dare to take Kashmiris for grated. While India and Pakistan have every right to protect their rights but they cannot use Kashmiris like concubines and tissue papers, however a pro people and sincere political leadership can only ensure that voice of Kashmiris is respected”. Er. Rasheed appealed masses to understand the sensitivities of the issues and give AIP a strength wherefrom it can talk with confidence, authority and commitment. He said “Masses should not pay any heed to traditional parties especially NC and PDP who have not only mislead New Delhi but have also weakened the real Kashmir cause. Er. Rasheed also asked Governor Administration to withdraw the order asking for disengaging casual laborers in various departments and said that the order is itself draconian and unacceptable. Party leaders Ishtiyaq Qadri, Prince Parvez, Sheeban Ashaie, Mudasir Tantary and Molvi Shabir also addredd the gathering and urged party workers to strengthen the party ay the gross root level and urged cadres to understand that AIP is not a party but a mission and a movement.
