Amid tensions, Kashmir Ex-MLAs seek all regional parties to contest upcoming elections jointly

SRINAGAR: Asking all pro-people voices to unite, Ghulam Hassan Mir, Hakim Mohammad Yaseen and Er Rasheed have suggested for collective efforts to overcome the grave situation the state of J&K is facing under current era of uncertainty.

Quoting three of them, the spokesman said that it sounded good to see two former Chief Ministers including Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah showing much concern about protecting the special status of the state. Mehbooba Mufti’s appeal asking various political forces to come together should be given a due hearing. The two former Chief Ministers need to be reminded that our parties have supported both the chief ministers in and outside assembly whenever the situation truly demanded the same.

Omar Abdullah had raised valid concerns about the division of votes in Kashmir province. Omar needs to be reminded that whenever NC or PDP feel insecure not for the interest of Kashmiris but only for the reason that their duplicity and self-centered politics gets exposed, both the parties talk of division of votes, regional aspirations and do waste no time in calling everyone as New Delhi’s agent without having any sincere self-introspection.

However without entering into blame game that who is responsible for the division of votes, it is imperative upon all saner voices to unite and ensure that votes of regional parties don’t get divided. While the state is passing through the crucial phase and not only the special status and identity of the state is at stake, the two countries are at the verge of war and people of J&K feel insecure at all fronts. It is moral responsibility of all forces to unite and protect the rights of the entire state and various identities within the state, the spokesman said.

“Three leaders suggested that If Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah sincerely believe that regional forces need to be united then all like-minded political forces must contest upcoming elections together and form a joint strategy not only to fight for protecting the special status of the state but to move forward for resolving the larger issues.
