While reflecting on the efforts of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) to finalize their Common Minimum Programme , Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) President and MLA Langate Er Rashid Monday termed the same as ‘farce’.
“The biggest Common Minimum Programme for the browbeaten masses of Jammu & Kashmir is the unresolved dispute of Kashmir as it is a matter of life and death for every Kashmiri and its non-settlement has cost the people of Kashmir dearly,
“Yesterday Kashmiris mourned deeply over the loss of Pakistan cricket team and the only people to burst crackers were security forces. Even the 70 percent those who voted in recent elections in Jammu &Kashmir mourned the loss of Pakistan cricket team, Rashid said.
Rashid reaffirmed that Kashmiris on their part have a well defined Common Minimum Programme and that is they stand for the just and dignified resolution of Kashmir Dispute.
“Futile and compromising Common Minimum Programmes will lead us no were, only that CMP would work which keeps the resolution of Kashmir Issue in its core. “It is the NC and PDP which have weakened the issue of Kashmir,” MLA Langate said.
Rashid observed “PDP should deeply introspect as to why its supporters did not dance on streets over the victory of India at a juncture when it is about to have alliance with BJP.”
