Srinagar | May 16 : Coming down heavily on CM Mehbooba Mufti for her claim that her father was the only leader who never lied to the people of Kashmir, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed ridiculed the claim and said that Mehbooba’s claim is itself a Himalayan lie.
Addressing party workers in Pattan today Er Rasheed reminded Mehbooba Mufti of her and late Mufti’s appeals to people of state during last Assembly elections not to vote for BJP and then falling in love with Amit Shah & Co.
Er Rasheed said, “If Mehbooba Mufti’s claims that leaders sold dreams to Kashmiris are believed to be true then why not to call her father Mufti a dream seller, as it was he who along with Mehbooba was advocating talks with the militants, getting sol called self rule to J&K and allowing a dual currency in J&K.”
“All what Mehbooba is trying to prove by accusing national media is that everything is calm in Kashmir and there are few misguided youth who are raising anti-India protests but Mehbooba needs to know that she can neither impress her masters in BJP and New Delhi nor can change the ground situation by hollow claims,” he added.
He said Kashmir is an internationally recognised dispute and it doesn’t make a difference if Mehbooba rules state through so called democratically elected means or Kokka Parray or Osman Majid rule the state through barrel of the gun.
He asked Mehbooba Mufti before accusing national media of being biased (which every Kashmiri has been crying since long), to lift the illogical and illegal ban on valley based TV channels.
