Incumbent Langate lawmaker, Er Rasheed on Thursday disclosed the details of his properties before media.
Challenging the media to prove his property statement wrong, Rasheed said that Indian government and a section of media have started a campaign against the Kashmiri leadership.
He however said that he is planning to sue the channels for the false propaganda in J&K High court and all other available forums.
Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Rasheed said that while watching television last night he was shocked to find a television channel, claiming to be number one, accusing that Rasheed has raised huge properties. He said that though the Indian television channels stand already discredited in Kashmir, however, it is hard to imagine that these “so called” journalists will stoop so low.
Detailing about his property, Rasheed said that any body interested can get the details verified and probed by the agencies from state crime branch to NIA.
Rasheed said that Indian agencies should spare some time, from maligning those speaking truth, and investigate those who have raised huge properties from Karnah to Dubai and UK to Switzerland.
He said that in addition to this income he and his brother have raised bank loan to the tune of almost sixty lakh rupees. He provided the bank account numbers and said that anybody is free to investigate the claims.
Rasheed said he has a house in Jammu built on 5 Marla’s of land which was purchased even before becoming MLA in 1996.
He said that he has a single story house built on 10 Marla’s of land in Srinagar and added “though I am not answerable to any accuser but for my people I solemnly state it keeping almighty as witness.
