Er. Rasheed today challenged those claiming J&K to be India’s integral part to say so without security in any part of Kashmir.
While speaking in the Assembly over GST, Rasheed said, “We the people of Jammu & Kashmir are thankful to New Delhi for bringing GST, as it has exposed New Delhi not only before people of India but before entire world for the fact that the constitutional hurdles in extending GST to J&K are ample proof that J&K is not India’s integral part.”
Addressing the Assembly Er. Rasheed said “If New Delhi is really worried about financial implications of GST in case of not implementing it in J&K, it must allow people of J&K to have trade with central Asia via Azad Kashmir. New Delhi has caged people of J&K and is depriving them of political, financial and human rights.”
During the Assembly session, Er. Rasheed had heated arguments with BJP president Satpal Sharma over his remarks on Shama Prasad Mukherjee and Karan Singh. He said that dreams of Shama Prasad Mukherjee will never come true.
Er. Rasheed while lashing out at BJP members for praising Hari Singh said, ” how can both Hari Singh and Sheikh Sahab be the Hero’s as one has to be the villain. I challenge you to visit Martyr’s graveyard on 13thJuly to prove that they believe in the constitution of state”.
Er. Rasheed added that since PDP lead Govt. has required numbers as such they can do any damn thing to save power. He added “While NC ditched people by burying plebiscite front and signing shameless Indra Abdullah accord in 1975, PDP is shamelessly indulged in burying every rights of the people of state. While the confirmed reports suggest that Hasid Drabu is eying to become RBI Governor as a reward to his sellout over GST, he should never do so by selling out self respect and rights of people of state
Er. Rasheed amid huge noise from all members said, ” if seeking right to self determination amounts to being a traitor, then Jawahar Lal Nehru was biggest traitor on earth.”
Earlier, Er. Rasheed led hundreds of protesters to march towards civil secretariat shouting anti GST slogans, after defying the strict restrictions imposed by the government forces.
However a huge contingent of police and Para-military forces foiled his anti GST March near civil secretariat and arrested more than hundred protesters and lodged them in police Stations at Shaheed Gunj, Karan Nagar, Batmaloo and Shergadhi.
