Srinagar,February,8 2017 CNS:Reacting to the announcement made by Central Govt. at the floor of Parliament that there would be no Sainik or Pandit colonies constructed in Kashmir, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed has termed it as vindication of stand taken by Kashmiris.
While interacting with party workers in Srinagar on Wednesday Er. Rasheed said that it is now proven beyond doubt that those opposing construction of Sainik and Pandit Colonies were neither Pakistani Agents nor miscreants, but true patriotic Kashmiris, who were not objecting to these draconian plans for the sake of opposition but their stand had strong logics and argument.
Er. Rasheed said “It was only after consistent and stiff resistance to these proposals that central Govt. had to announce abandoning its colonial designs at floor of the parliament. The announcement though has vindicated stand of Kashmiris, however New Delhi needs to give up its colonial attitude over all other issues and has to accept the bitter realities sooner or later and give right to self determination to people of J&K”. Er. Rasheed said that every Kashmiri is always ready to welcome Kashmiri Pandits back to their homes and give them respect, sense of security and dignity, whatsoever possible, but it is Kashmiri Pandits who have to make a choice between getting packages and returning to their ancestral places.
