MLA Langate questions extension by 18 days


Srinagar, Feb 1: MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has criticized the decision of Shri Amarnath
 Shrine Board to increase the duration of Yatra by 18 days.
 “Worst enemies of Kashmiris and even communal forces have always been confessing that Kashmir’s majority community has offered whole-hearted support to the Yatra under all circumstances. But it is unfortunate that hidden hands often want to keep one issue or the other on the boil with regards to Yatra,” Rasheed said in a statement here.
 “It were the environmental experts, civil society members and other well-meaning institutions who were demanding that duration of Yatra should be cut down for various reasons but it is unfortunate that the Shine Board has taken a reverse decision. The long duration has not only been proving as an environmental disaster but also affecting the work in civil secretariat and other essential departments badly. Shrine Board should not show arrogance and it will be proper and in the interest of everybody if the decision of extending Yatra is reversed at an earliest,” Rasheed said.
 He also condemned the demolition drive and ‘use of force against innocent people majority of whom were hailing from minority community’ in Sidra and warned government of serious consequences. Er. Rashid questioned government that why the drive was taken only in a particular area where people of a particular community are residing.
