Jammu: Reacting to the verbal slugfest between Congress legislator Usman Majeed and a PDP legislator Noor Muhammad, Independent legislator Engineer Rasheed on Wednesday said that Usman was a militant turned counter-insurgent and a close aide of Kuka Parray.
“As such he (Usman) has to be made accountable for all atrocities that Ikhwan did to innocent citizens. However PDP has no moral right to abuse him today,” he said in a statement. Seeking explanation from chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, he said if the PDP believed Usman to be a killer and Ikhwani, why did they induct him as a minister in Mufti Mohammad Sayeed-led government in 2002.
“Mehbooba Mufti should first tender an unconditional apology for inducting Ikhwanis and killers into Mufti Sahab’s cabinet and must accept that the party had given full patronage to renegades. Whatsoever PDP MLA’s say today about Usman Majeed does not suit them, despite that being true. Mehbooba should shun this opportunist politics,” he said.
