#Day54: Instead of Geelani, NIA Should Investigate Assets of Unionist Politicians, says Rasheed



The killing in Nadihal has “exposed” the “nefarious designs of Indian state”, MLA Langate, Er Rasheed said on Wednesday.

“It is beyond doubt that it not wants only to kill Kashmiris with bullets, pellets and curfews but also by ensuring that the already dying fruit industry, the back bone of Kashmir economy, should also get destroyed,” Rasheed said while referring to raid on Fruit Mandi Sopore.

In a statement issued this afternoon, Rasheed said, “it is ironic that forces don’t allow Fruit Mandi Sopore to start its business in the morning hours, nor does it allow any vehicular movement on any route in the valley from morning to evening as it wants to counter the resistance movement.”

“However, forces need to remind that it is not choice of the government but that of the people to decide when to work and when not. The arrogant and colonial attitude of government that has already led to losses of billions to fruit growers, forced the fruit growers and dealers of Fruit Mandi Sopore to take to roads and under already designed plan forces used bullets and rendering dozens injured and death of Danish Manzoor,” the MLA Langate said.

He further condemned government for harassing various people including Dr Naeem Geelani, son of Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani by sending them notices through NIA and alleging them of disproportionate transactions in bank accounts.

“Indian state by doing such dirty tricks has proved that it can’t fight the mass uprising by genuine means,” he said, “if NIA and other agencies are really interested in finding those who have got black money, why doesn’t it take notice of those mainstream politicians, bureaucrats and police officers who have made properties worth billions by misusing their positions and sucking blood of common masses.”
