Syed Salahuddin’s statement a death warrant: AJKPC
Jammu, Nov 3: A day after Hizbul Mujahideen Supremo Syed Salahuddin asked the Panchayat representatives in JK to resign, All Jammu and Kashmir Panchayat Conference (AJKPC) on Saturday described his statement as “death warrant” for them and warned that the threat can generate fresh wave of resignations.
"Government of India (GoI) should clear its position whether they are providing security to Panchs and Sarpanchs within 24 hours -- What is their stand on this threat --Let them clear it," AJKPC chairman Shafiq Mir told reporters here.
"We demand security again -- we had demanded security after the killing of three of our members," Mir said adding, "The state government has totally failed to provide security to our members till now".
"Union Government can also intervene if the state is not serious over the security of Panchayat members," he said.
"None of the Panchs and Sarpanchs, even after the intervention of AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi during his visit, have been provided with security," Mir said adding," Panchayat conference has representation of 33,000 members ".
"We are not going to resign-- Our members of Panchayat Conference campaigned for democracy at the grass-root level particularly in Kashmir Valley as they requested and motivated members there not to go for resignations-- even those leaders have not even been given security," he said.
Time has come when Centre should intervene into the matter to take a decision over our security, he said adding that this threat can generate fresh wave of resignations.
