‘Disappointed’ MLA moves every one in house
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Mar 15: In an emotionally charged speech, Independent MLA from Langate, Engineer Rasheed today regretted of having contested assembly elections in the state where he failed to provide justice to his people, while demanding resignation of three cabinet ministers, who have allegedly taken major share in the creation and up-gradation of health and school institutions.
Disappointed over the “government indifference towards the issues of public importance”, the MLA was unable to stop his tears while expressing dismay over the partisan attitude of those at the helm of affairs
Seeking justice for the people who have elected and sent them (all MLAs) to the House, the MLA, with wet eyes, lamented that the House has failed to solve the problems of the people for which they (MLAs) were elected and sent to Assembly.
Participating in the discussion on demand for grants of education department, the MLA moved every body in the House, including those who had criticized him for “creating unnecessary trouble and often disturbing proceeds”.
“I remember the day when we took oath to work for the welfare of the people without any consideration to religion, region or caste, Par Aaj Mai Apne Samne Apne Zameer Ka Jinaza Nikelte Dek Raha Hoon”.
“Peerzada Sahib you have taken oath to provide justice to the masses, which you forget as you failed to see all with an equal eye”. “Wo Mere Zingadi Ka Manhos Din Tha, Jis Din Mainae Naukri Chode Aur Assembly Mai Aya (It was my worst day when I left the government job and joined the Assembly)”, Rashid said while crying feverously.
As Rashid was unable to control his tears and continue to sob on his seat, almost all the members from PDP, BJP and NC tried to pacify him and expressed their support to Rashid. PDP MLA Abdul Rehman Veeri and BJP MLA Ashok Khajuria told Speaker, “It is a lesson for all the members not to take the people for granted who have elected them to solve their problems”.
