Er Rasheed announces boycott of remaining assembly session


 Seeking unconditional release of Bilal Kawa, arrested by Delhi Police, independent leader and  MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Tuesday rocked state Assembly over the issue and said that security agencies outside state leave no stone unturned to harass Kashmiris and destroy their future.

As soon as the house began its proceedings this morning, Rasheed got up and raised the issue and quoted the version of State police confirming Bilal Kawa’s innocence.

Er Rasheed said that if Bilal Kawa was truly wanted by Delhi police in 2000 Bomb Blast Case, Government must tell the house why Delhi police communicated didn’t even once to the state government about Bilal being wanted.

The records reveal that Delhi police has never made any communication with J&K Police about Bilal’s involvement, who was never an absconder and was frequently travelling Delhi. The silence of Dehli police for seventeen years is itself a proof of his innocence. Er Rasheed asked NC legislators not to talk about morality and state terrorism and reminded them of their criminal role in dozens of cases like that of Bilal Kawa. Later Er Rasheed ended his protest when Government promised to come out with a statement over the issue in the house.

Later in his budget speech Er Rasheed questioned sincerity of central Government over supporting Palestinians and said that on one side New Delhi supported Palestinians in United Nation but on the other side invited Benjamin Netanyahu and Modi who gave him big hugs and even broke the protocols, thus adding salt to the injuries of billions of Muslims all over the world.

Rasheed also lashed out at government for creating extra-constitutional posts like nominating vice chairmen for various corporations and boards thus not only creating a system within the system but also causing a huge financial burden on the state exchequer.

He reminded the house of the fact that New Delhi is doing no extra favour to the state as it has looted the resources of J&K and sold even out water to Pakistan to safeguard the interests of rest of  India. He also referred to the misuse of assets including J&K house and Bombay house,  J&K is possessing outside the state.

Rasheed added that without accountability and proper planning, packages from the centre will yield nothing and urged for cutting down on the expenditure of Ministers, legislators, and bureaucrats.

He sought an end to VIP culture so that the true spirit of democracy reaches to the grass root level. Talking to media Er Rasheed said that house is losing its credibility fast and has become a house of goons where even elected representatives are handled like criminals.
