Joint Resistance Leaders (JRL), Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Dr Mohammad Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik on Monday convened an extraordinary meeting at Hyderpora, Srinagar and discussed, in detail various critical issues related to the resistance movement of Kashmir.
The spokesman said that leadership expressed its grave concern on the vile attempts of the authorities to exploit the political, economic and cultural values of the state. Apprising the freedom loving people of Jammu and Kashmir about the ill designs of the aggression, JRL said that tinkering the hereditary law, change in Muslim majority character of the state, elimination of state subject law’s, privatization of electric projects, construction of military basements at Gulmarg and other health resorts of tourism destinations, are on anvil to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir.
The JRL said that 850 MW Rattle Power Project is being shared with some undisclosed Public sector undertaking of GOI. It will be another loot and plunder of our resources which only and only belong to the permanent residents of J&K. They said that NHPC is already holding illegal and unconstitutional control over 8 power projects viz Salal, Uri I, Dul Hasti, Sewa II, Uri II, Nimo Bazgo, Chutuk, and Kishen Ganga. Another three projects viz Pakal Dul, Kiru and Kawar with a cumulative capacity of 2120 MW are being shared with them under the garb of joint venture Chenab Valley Power Projects Ltd (CVPP). 1000 MW Burser has been given to NHPC in the year 2000 on which though they have not started any work but remains with them. Speculations are rife that J&K Government is mulling to share 1850 MW Sawlakote with some Himachal PSU.
JRL said that we cannot remain as mere spectators to the loot and plunder of these resources going on unabated. JRL in a first move made a fervent appeal to the freedom loving people to observe a complete election boycott as an important political antidote for Indian aggression to implement the aforesaid ill designs by using these elections as a political tool.
The JRL while urging close contacts and widespread consultations with the freedom loving people termed it highly imperative to launch a people’s uprising against the brazen sole of our economic assets, environmental beauty, and demography at the hands of Indian imperialism in the shape of East India Company of modern times.
The meeting also expressed its anguish on the vulnerability of a small scale business community of Kashmir working in Manali, Himachal, Utter Pradesh, Delhi and the other state of India to the communal frenzy of the ruling class in India. The JRL condemned the brutal attack on a young businessman and intimidation of others as a grave cause of concern for us and warned that if necessary measures of protecting their lives are not frozen immediately it might have consequences otherwise.
