Rasheed holds sit-in, demands plebiscite on both sides of LoC

Jammu: Holding playcard seeking plebiscite on both sides of LOC in J&K, AIP president and MLA Langate Engineer Rasheed on the first day of Assembly session had a sit in at the main entrance of Assembly, where Governor had to address the joint session. Er. Rasheed confronted Governor when he started his speech and reiterated that people of state don’t accept him as the Governor of the state and added that Mr. Vohra or anybody else has technically no right to hold the post of Governor as J&K is supposed to have is its own elected president and Prime Minister. He said that India’s might would never force people of J&K to succumb, who are seeking right to self determination.

Later speaking over obituary reference Er. Rasheed said that since the house has unanimously agreed to pay tributes to those civilians killed in past six months in the state, as such it is proven that they were all innocents. Er. Rasheed said “Paying tributes and expressing solidarity with the families of victims of state terrorism is of no help, as it cannot bring the precious human lives back. However including the civilians in the list of Assembly business for paying them tributes, proves that those martyred by Army and police had not gone to buy toffees and milk, as was claimed by CM. Martyrs don’t need condolences or obituary from those who are controlling their killers”.

Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba who was in the house to confess being guilty of killing innocents and said that her crocodile tears would never be of any help to the victims of state terrorism. Er. Rasheed rejected Congress legislature party leader Nawang Jora’s claim that mass uprising in Kashmir was due to unholy alliance between PDP and BJP and said that it is disgrace to the sacrifices and every member should realize and confess that those martyred were seeking nothing but Right to self Determination. He blamed PM Modi for the border killings as her claims about Surgical Strikes created the war like atmosphere at borders. Er. Rasheed retreated that people of J&K could not be deprived of right to self determination always. (CNS)
