Cross border firing : Er Rasheed visits Uri victims, seeks residential plots for them


Independent lawmaker and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Saturday have asked the government to give alternate land to border migrants and all those who are under constant threat of cross LoC shelling in the entire state.

The spokesman said the government must take other immediate and concrete steps to rehabilitate the border victims of Uri, who have been forced to migrate from their native places due to shelling and escalation at the borders.

The spokesman has quoted the Er Rasheed saying “while saner voices on both the sides often claim that war is not a solution but no one in India dares to tell Narendra Modi and others that Kashmir dispute is the root cause of tension in the sub-continent.”

Rasheed said that dispute has proved to be the giant killer for people not only on both sides of LoC but for innocent Kashmiris who have been butchered in thousands by the hands of security forces. While those who matter are just using words either to condemn the incidents or threaten each other, the common masses, militants and the army men live in a situation of uncertainty and chaos round the clock.

Rasheed urged New Delhi and Islamabad to include militant leadership and elected representatives in the dialogue process, which should calumniate at finding a durable resolution to Kashmir dispute, matching sentiments, aspirations and sacrifices of Kashmiri people.

Rasheed on the occasion announced providing coaching for all the children of affected families through Joint Effort Trust and said despite all odds we may wait for many things but not for education.

Rasheed added that the state government has miserably failed to protect the rights of inhabitants of Selikote, Hatlanga, Charunda, Tilawari and Balkote, whose lives are always under constant threat as almost the whole population has been thrown on the other side of the LoC fencing. He asked the government to provide residential plots to each of the families rather providing bunkers which may serve no purpose amid continuous escalation at the borders.
