Jammu: The budget session is being marked by paradoxes as various legislators from the ruling party speak in different directions.
On Wednesday PDP leader and MLA Baramulla Javed Beg said that for the resolution of Kashmir Hurriyat Conference will have to play its role.
“Hurriyat leaders will have to change their behavior if they are well wishers of people. J&K has three regions and the leaders have to take into account these factors. If Hurriyat Conference does not want to talk, our government cannot help it,” he said.
Criticizing the leader of opposition for boycotting the speech of chief minister, Beg said that Omar Abdullah has a “big stature”.
“What will happen due to boycott? He has to give us vision as in a participatory democracy. Make the government accountable here, this is the forum,” he said.
“Keep the whole budget session to discuss Kashmir issue and show how the issue will be solved,” he asked.
Beg said that late Mufti Sayeed knew how to use the verdict in 2014 election. “He knew coalition with government will lead to understanding between the two (PDP and BJP),” he said inviting claps from government MLAs. “Let me tell you, BJP will have a very important role in future but I don’t know who will be with whom.”
The PDP leader continued his diatribe against the media also.
“Journalists want nuisance value for news. Media is galvanizing the deaths in Kashmir,” he yelled.
“Newspapers show huge gathering, 50000 people, in militant funerals… politics is being done on the blood of Kashmiris,” he alleged.
He also referred to as how 30 lakh people attended the funeral of Salman Tasseer’s killer in Pakistan and “only 5000 participated in funeral of Edhi Foundation founder”.
Seeking resolution of Kashmir Issue, Beg reverted to 1999 meeting of CIA with then president Bill Clinton when Nawaz Sharif was in the United Sates.
“India and Pakistan were ready for a nuclear war,” he said quoting minutes of the meeting.
However, as Beg ended his speech his counterpart from Vachi constituency in South Kashmir batted for talks with Hurriyat Conference leadership as well as Kashmiri militants for seeking a permanent solution to Kashmir problem.
MLA Wachi advocate Aijaz Ahmad, appealed governments of India and Pakistan for holding a continuous dialogue to find a solution to Kashmir issue.
“For that,” Aijaz said, “talks with Hurriyat Conference and militants are must.”
Aijaz also said that his government under Mehbooba Mufti had taken some remarkable steps including regularization of employees.
He seconded MLA Shopian that a resolution should be passed by the house to congratulate Insha Mushtaq for passing her matriculation exam.
The MLA Shopian, advocated M Y Bhat, had demanded that a resolution be passed to congratulate Insha Mushtaq for this remarkable event in her life.
