Asking NC and PDP to “stop mudslinging” at each other, AIP President Er Rasheed has said that people of J&K should wake up and uproot both of them, so that “politics of hypocrisy, exploitation and deception comes to an end”.
The spokesman said that while reacting to allegations being levelled by Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti against each other in south Kashmir today, Rasheed said that both have disrespected people’s mandate, diluted Kashmir cause and given New Delhi a free hand to carry on its policies of “suppression” through “state terrorism”.
He said that let Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti bring clarity in their goals and tell people either J&K is India’s integral part or a dispute that needs to be resolved. They must either side themselves with the masses or with New Delhi. Their confusing stances on one hand are diluting Kashmir cause and creating false hopes in New Delhi that Kashmiris can be forced or persuaded to surrender and on the other hand their promises not to repeat mistakes of the past create a false hope among a large section of Kashmiris that they will represent them the way they promise or they deserve to be represented.
Rasheed said it is responsibility of masses, not Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti to ensure that people don’t get cheated every time by the traditional politicians.
