Incumbent Langate lawmaker, Er Rasheed has accused jammu and Kashmir National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah of promoting New Delhi’s view point just to divert the attention from the real issue of Jammu & Kashmir.
In a statement, Rasheed said, “Farooq Sahab must understand that maintaining status-quo is not any solution and Kashmiris have not given sacrifices to maintain status-quo, but to get right to self determination.”
“Rather daring PM Modi to hoist a tri-color in Srinagar, Farooq Sahab who all along his life has strongly propagated India’s view point on Kashmir can advice Modi to hold a plebiscite on both the sides of LOC so that Farooq Sahab who often claims to be more Indian than the Indians can vigorously campaign and motivate people to vote for India in the plebiscite and Modi Ji’s dream of hoisting tri-color in Muzaffarabad and Mirpur will be fulfilled,” he said.
Rasheed accused that National Conference is making hue and cry about “Azad Kashmir” being part of Pakistan only to strengthen India’s view point on the overall dispute, as those expecting PaK to be India’s part some day without succeeding in doing so through plebiscite, are living in fool’s paradise”.
The firebrand lawmaker asked Farooq Abdullah to stop becoming New Delhi Proxy and acting like a “puppet” on the dictate of his masters just to avoid an honorable settlement to the dispute of J&K and to ensure that huge sacrifices do not go waste by implementing Dr. Farooq stupid status-quo theory.
