Handwara 27 March : Challenging his rival candidates from NC, PDP and PC to have an open debate at a place and timing of their choice AIP President and candidate from Baramullah parliamentary constituency Er. Rasheed has said that his rivals have no moral right to talk over various sensitive and burning issues as they are the architects of miseries and sufferings of Kashmiris.
While addressing public gatherings at Warpora, Magam, Dudikote Kupwara, Gushi, Kupwara Gonipora Handwara, Dangerpora Sopore and other places Er. Rasheed appealed masses to rise to the occasion and teach their enemies a lesson. He said “it is strange that all the so called three regional parties are behaving like concubines of BJP and Congress and have degraded and disgraced Kashmiris in every forum and in every form. The leaders of these parties have created huge assets by indulging in corruption and misusing their position from time to time. Before taking moral ground on governance and corruption let the leaders of these parties give details about their assets and tell masses how they have created them.
While common masses continue to struggle for bread and butter the white collar elite political class and most of the bureaucrats have looted state and become multimillionaire overnight. Most of them have managed assets by illegal means in foreign countries but are still trying to give a notion as if they are angels”.
Expressing surprise over Omer Abdullah’s and Mehbooba Mufti’s allegations and counter allegations over each other Er. Rasheed asked people to think ten times before voting either of their nominees in the elections. He said “Mehbooba Mufti is becoming extra shameless by talking about Jamat-I-Islami and JKLF. She needs to be reminded the fact that her tenure as Chief Minister was much more brutal than the atrocities Kashmiris faced in Maharaja’s regime.
By trying to show her sympathy with Kashmiris is like adding salt to the injuries and she will get nothing out of this mockery and cheap politics except losing her credibility.
