NC, Congress planning sabotage: Er Rasheed
AFZAL GURU AMNESTY RESOLUTION
Srinagar, Sep 22: MLA Langate, Er Rasheed has expressed apprehensions that National Conference and Congress ruling alliance are “planning to sabotage” his resolution seeking amnesty for Afzal Guru.
“I suspect that the ruling alliance will sabotage it by either abstaining from voting on the resolution in the House or voting against it,” he said.
In a statement, Er Rasheed appealed to all political parties to keep this issue away from politics and see it through the prism of larger interests of the state and principals of justice.
He reminded Congress and BJP that if they had no problem in voting in favor of the same kind of resolution in Tamil Nadu, why they are hesitating to do the same in Kashmir.
He appealed to the people that they should exert pressure on the MLAs of their respective constituencies that they not only remain present in the House on the date of voting, but also vote in favor of the resolution.
MLA Langate asked PDP, NC and Congress to show some respect towards sufferings, sentiments and aspirations of the people and ensure that they will make his resolution a success.
Meanwhile, reacting to the statements of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhary, Er Rasheed expressed surprise over the continuing changing political stands of various PaK and Pakistani politicians regarding Kashmir issue.
He said though flexibility in stand from any side should be appreciated, but at the same time, all the parties need to adopt a humane and honest stand for the resolution of Kashmir issue. Er Rasheed said if anyone from across the LoC says that they are ready to move beyond the UN resolutions, it doesn’t generate much heat, but if any Kashmiri takes a reconciliatory stand or favours negotiated settlement, he is dubbed as traitor from political forces from Islamabad to Delhi and Muzaffarabad to Srinagar.
