Terming today’s strike against efforts to abrogate Article 370 as eye opener for New Delhi, incumbent Langate lawmaker Er. Rasheed has appealed masses to be prepared for “stiff resistance” to foil New Delhi’s “nefarious” designs.
In a statement Rasheed said while people have shown unity, leadership needs to give up personal egos and agendas. “New Delhi must be prepared to face the worst if it continues with its dirty measures against the special status of J&K. It is disgraceful that on one hand Mehbooba Mufti claimed that PM Modi has assured her of not weakening the special status including Article 35-A, but on the other hand has decided not to defend India’s own constitution in the Supreme Court.”
“Mehooba should know that it is not Mr. Modi but the Supreme Court that has to decide the fate of Article 35-A. By not defending 35-A in Supreme Court, not only Govt of India but Mehbooba Mufti also stands exposed for misleading people. Such worst hypocrisy has exposed Modi’s duel policy by trying to keep a lollipop in Mehbooba Mufti’s mouth but on the other hand leaving India’s own constitution at the mercy of Supreme Court,” Rasheed said.
He said the act of not defending India’s own constitution in the Supreme Court should worry Indians and union Govt should be charged for disrespecting India’s own constitution.
