Reacting to Governor’s remarks against corruption, Er Rasheed has said that any step taken with sincerity to eradicate corruption should be welcomed and it is most appropriate to take bigger fishes to task on priority, however asking militants to kill corrupt politicians is a confession that government has miserably failed to handle the issue and has thus sought militants help to eradicate corruption.
In a statement issued today, Rasheed said that it is a bitter fact that politicians especially ministers have earned fortunes out of sufferings of masses but bigger fishes in police and civil administration are not far behind. There could hardly be someone who might not have got indulged in corruption scams when got an opportunity to reach corridors of power.
Rasheed added that if Governor Malik has asked militants to attack corrupt politicians, it is visible that he has lost hope in the system and out of sincerity is seeking help from militants. “Governor’s appeal to militants should be seen in the right perspective and one must understand that militants are not aliens and one way or the other governance should be their concern as well,” the spokesman quoted Rasheed as saying.
Rasheed added that why didn’t Omar Abdullah or someone from his party uttered even a single word when income tax department carried out raids on NC senior leader Abdul Rahim Rather’s business establishments.
“No one can forget when Ex Congress Minister Taj Mohidin was accused of land grabbing in South Kashmir the entire enquiry was closed after he expressed his displeasure and used his loyalty as a defence to defend huge charges against him,” Rasheed said in a statement.
