Continuation of AFSPA victory of resistance movement: Er Rasheed

Srinagar, Apr 26: Ridiculing stand of mainstream parties on revocation of AFSPA, independent leader and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Thursday said that helplessness of regional parties has given New Delhi a free hand to deal with Jammu and Kashmir.
The spokesman said while addressing a public meeting at Pohrupeth, Hangah and Qalamabad Er Rasheed said that revoking AFSPA should have been more a cause of concern and worry for New Delhi than Kashmiris as it has brought a bad name to the army and other agencies. Mainstream parties especially NC and PDP should stop befooling masses from revoking AFSPA has nothing to do with New Delhi.
He said that there are sufficient provisions in the constitution which can be used by the state government to get rid of this dirty book, but it seems that elected representatives have sold out their conscience and are shedding crocodile tears. The fact is neither Omar Abdullah nor Mehbooba Mufti wants to take New Delhi head on but by politics of deception and exploitation they are indulged in a vicious game of misleading those who bring them to power. One has a right to ask if the successive state Governments are not even worth to get AFSPA removed, how can they resolve Kashmir issue.
“By not revoking AFSPA New Delhi has surrendered before the resistance of Kashmiris and it is a proven fact that India is ruling Kashmir by driving power from the AFSPA. All the claims of winning hearts and minds of Kashmiris.
