AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has asked New Delhi to decide whether it really believes that politics is battle of ideas, when it comes to Kashmir. Addressing a public gathering after inaugurating a separate electric feeder for Langate town and adjoining areas, that has come up at a cost of about 35 Lac Rupees, at Ganapora Langate today, Er Rasheed said that nobody on earth could stop him from speaking for the political rights of Kashmiri people and for doing so he doesn’t need permission or blessings from anyone. Er Rasheed said, “While every effort is being made to lower down my voice in and outside Assembly, it hardly matters as speaking truth and narrating history doesn’t mean becoming a traitor or anti-national. While a section in bureaucracy and elected government are keen bent to create hurdles in my work and mandate, it doesn’t make me a difference to represent sentiments and aspirations of my people. Nobody can rule J&K at the barrel of gun or by becoming darling of New Delhi.” Er Rasheed said that if New Delhi and its puppets don’t like my face in and outside Assembly, they are at liberty to cancel my membership from the state Assembly and ban me from contesting any elections throughout my life. He said that on one hand GOI tends to desire that separatists should prove their worth by contesting elections, but on other hand the state apparatus leaves no stone unturned to suppress my voice. Er Rasheed appealed government officers to keep in mind that they are government servants and any move to use them for political gains by the ruling alliance, will be dealt with strongly.
