Appealing masses to vote for him, AIP President and candidate from Baramulla Parliamentary constituency Er Rasheed on Tuesday addressed around a dozen gatherings at Pattan, Khunbal Handwara, Chowkibal, Trahgam, Kralpora, Batergam and other various places.
The spokesman said that Rasheed thanked the people for showing their support and assured that he will not let them down. “My eleven years performance in Assembly needs to be judged by masses and people have a right to reject me if others have represented them better. Let Kashmiris understand their duties and not miss the opportunity to send the right persons in parliament to represent their sufferings and sentiments. If people make a wrong choice yet again, the onus will lie on them, not on those who exploit their sentiments,” Rasheed was quoted by the spokesman as saying.
Accusing NC, PDP and PC of displaying worst hypocrisy, Rasheed said that these parties have nothing to offer except what their “masters” in Delhi want them to do just to make the election drama a success.
He said; “While Kashmir is burning for three decades, the leaders have been the biggest beneficiaries of the conflict and the regional forces have acted like B teams of Congress and BJP. It is shameful that Mehbooba Mufti and Ali Mohammad Sagar are comparing their cadres with Mujahideen, without having any idea what they mean by saying so and thus hurting religious sentiments of masses”.
Rasheed appealed masses to give AIP a chance so that the voice of “suppressers and deprived” reaches the right place and the miseries of Kashmiris come to an end.
