NC’s slogan of autonomy is outdated: Er Rasheed

Baramulla: The Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) chief, Er Rasheed on Sunday said that the NC’s slogan of autonomy is outdated and alleged that the party has used this slogan to create confusion and weaken the real sentiments and aspirations of people of J&K.
“Time is ripe to show NC, PDP and other traditional parties their right place and make them to pay for their politics of exploitation,” he said while addressing a day-long convention of party workers at Dak-Banglaw Baramulla – according to the statement.
Rasheed said the NC leadership cannot always befool Kashmiris and stab them, but still ask them for vote. “It is the Himalayan fact that most of the leaders of NC and PDP have earned fortunes from the miseries of masses and have created huge assets, badly indulged in corruption and nepotism and have ruined the credibility of institutions,” he alleged.
Rasheed reminded Omar Abdullah that before trying to raise emotions of Kashmiris against BJP, “he should not forget that he was himself a minister in the BJP”.
“…expecting anything good from PDP leadership is like expecting apples from popular trees as the party has taken birth from Congress, the mother of all evils, when it comes to Kashmir,” he said.
The AIP chief also welcomed the decision taken by the government to bring J&K Bank under RTI and said that bringing transparency and accountability in the system should be always welcomed.
