Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti giving false hopes to Delhi that Kashmiris will surrender: Er. Rasheed

Srinagar 15 January: Asking NC and PDP to stop mud sliding at each other, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that people of J&K should wake up and uproot both of them, so that politics of hypocrisy, exploitation and deception comes to an end. While reacting to allegations being levelled by Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti against each other in south Kashmir today, Er. Rasheed said “Both have disrespected people’s mandate, diluted Kashmir cause and given New Delhi a free hand to carry on its policies of oppression and suppression through state terrorism. Let Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti bring clarity in their goals and tell people either J&K is India’s integral part or a dispute that needs to be resolved. They must either side themselves with the masses or with New Delhi. Their confusing stances on one hand are diluting Kashmir cause and creating false hopes in New Delhi that Kashmiris can be forced or persuaded to surrender and on the other hand their promises not to repeat mistakes of the past create a false hope among a large section of Kashmiris that they will represent them the way they promise or they deserve to be represented”. Er. Rasheed appealed masses to make a choice once for all if they want to be trapped continuously between the duel policies of NC and PDP or truly want a leadership which would speak with consistency and sincerity and ask New Delhi and Islamabad to give Kashmiris right to self-determination. Er. Rasheed said it is responsibility of masses not Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti to ensure that people don’t get cheated every time by the traditional politicians. He said “No one should expect NC and PDP to talk about issues which are mainly created by them only. If masses on one hand continue to abuse main stream parties but still vote for them, which is the only thing they require, why should people be so angry and disappointed with them after they bring them to power”. Er. Rasheed appealed masses to unite and reject both NC and PDP so that New Delhi is made to understand that its hidden proxies cannot rule, always run away and leave Kashmiris to death and destruction.
