Srinagar, December 12

Independent  MLA and Awami Ittehad Party (AIP)  chairman  Engineer Rashieed said here  today said it in clear terms that “ No body  likes Vajpayee formula in Kashmir,” it is all a propaganda .

This, a statement  by him  on Monday claimed , was stated by  him to a visiting  delegation  led by former Indian external minister  Yashwant Sinha .

He said that former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s Kashmir policy has no takers and it is propaganda that Kashmiris liked Vajpayee’s stand.

“Er. Rasheed told the deputation “Kashmiri’s don’t seek a solution on communal lines but right to self determination will provide every citizen of the disputed territory to express his will and choice,” said the statement.

“Since PM has also claimed that people of Gilgit, Baltistan and PaK want to be part of India and there is a parliament resolution supporting his claim, so Mr. Modi owes an answer to his countrymen that how will he fulfill the wishes he claims to have received from the people of Pak and Gilgit Baltistan, implement the parliament resolution and fill up the vacant seats in J&K Assembly.”

Rasheed said that there was no better way to prove his claims than by holding a referendum in light of the UN resolutions.

“Jammu and Kashmir isn’t an integral part of India and the only way to resolve the dispute was by holding a free and fair plebiscite on both sides of the LoC,”  the statement quoted him having told the  delegation.

 “Er. Rasheed asked deputation that Kashmiri’s have no confusion in their minds for what they want and stressed the need that India should understand that using force, pellets and killing innocents is not a solution to the problem,” said the statement.

“He emphasized the need to talk to militant leadership and added that the Kashmir movement is indigenous and labeling everybody who speaks for truth as Pakistani agent is unacceptable and unfair.”

He told the deputation that whatsoever is happening in J&K or whatsoever Kashmiri’s are seeking has nothing to do who rules the state.

“He also rejected the version that only Kashmiri’s are seeking Right to Self determination and added that despite being worst victims of State Terrorism and under constant threat of radical forces majority in Jammu province have stood strongly with Kashmiri’s.”

Er. Rasheed asked deputation that Kashmiri’s feel humiliated when Indian think tanks, deputations and individuals do come here and ask them what they want.

“The attempt seems to be a deliberate one to create confusions. All those who come to Kashmir should answer that if they have a moral right to come Kashmir for the reason that Indian’s have approached  Kashmiri’s every time when they took to streets or violence but do forget once things return to so called normalcy.”
