Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) President and MLA Langate , Er Rashid has once again reaffirmed that without active involvement of United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Salahuddin, no solution to Kashmir issue is possible.
While replying to Governor’s address on Wednesday, Rashid said, “I want to remind the Indian leadership that they conducted a dialogue with five Hizbul Mujahideen commanders at the Nehru Guest House in Srinagar but now calling Syed Salahuddin, the head of the same outfit, a terrorist has no rationale.”
He also called upon the central government to initiate a meaningful and result orient dialogue with Hurriyat and Jihad Council.
Rashid also called upon the NC and PDP leadership to present the copies of supposed letters written by their respective party presidents to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over Afzal Guru issue.
“Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Opposition leader Mehbooba Mufti have time and again stated that Farooq Abdullah and Mufti Mohammad Sayeed wrote letters to Manmohan Singh to return mortal remains of Afzal Guru. If such letters have really been written they should be presented before Assembly so that we are convinced that NC and PDP are not lying. If actually these letters have been written it would be clear before everybody that New Delhi does not care about Kashmir and gives no heed even to letters written by former Chief Ministers like Farooq Abdullah and Mufti Mohammad Sayeed,” Rashid said.
