Kashmir News Observer (KNO)

Srinagar September 24 (KNO) : Joint Resistance Leaders (JRL), Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Dr. Mohammad Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik convened an extra ordinary meeting at Hyderpora, Srinagar and discussed, in detail various critical issues related to the resistance movement of Kashmir.

The leadership as per a statement issued to (KNO) expressed its grave concern on the vile attempts of the authorities to exploit the political, economic and cultural values of the state.

Apprising the freedom loving people of Jammu and Kashmir about the ill designs of the India, the JRL said that tinkering the hereditary law, change in Muslim majority character of the state, elimination of state subject law’s, privatization of electric projects, construction of military basements at Gulmarg and other health resorts of tourism destinations, are on the Indian anvil to turn Jammu and Kashmir as ‘a mere colony of India’.

Elaborating the Indian ‘ploy’, the JRL said that 850 MW Rattle Power Project is being shared with some undisclosed Public sector undertaking of GOI. “It will be another loot and plunder of our resources which only and only belong to the permanent residents of J&K,” JRL said. They said that NHPC is already holding illegal and unconstitutional control over 8 power projects viz Salal, Uri I, Dul Hasti, Sewa II, Uri II, Nimo Bazgo, Chutuk and Kishen Ganga.

Another three projects viz Pakal Dul, Kiru and Kawar with cumulative capacity of 2120 MW are being shared with them under the garb of joint venture Chenab Valley Power Projects Ltd (CVPP). 1000 MW Burser has been given to NHPC in the year 2000 on which though they have not started any work but remains with them. “Speculations are rife that J&K Government is mulling to share 1850 MW Sawlakote with some Himachal PSU,” JRL said. JRL said that “we cannot remain as mere spectators to the loot and plunder of these resources going on unabated.”

JRL reiterating its pledge to fight these nefarious designs of India tooth and nail along with the massive support against the conspiracies having semblance with the role of East India Company for the British imperialism, warned the Indian authorities to desist from such nefarious designs to “ruin our economy’, render lakhs of electric employees unemployed and widespread destruction of environment as a place for tourist destinations.

The JRL in a first move made a fervent appeal to the freedom loving people to observe a complete election boycott as an important “political antidote for Indian aggression to implement the foresaid ill designs by using these elections as a political tool.

” The JRL while urging close contacts and widespread consultations with the freedom loving people, termed it ‘highly imperative’ to launch a people’s uprising against the “brazen sole of our economic assets, environmental beauty, and demography at the hands of Indian imperialism in the shape of East India company of modern times.”

The meeting also expressed its anguish on the vulnerability of a small scale business community of Kashmir working in Manali, Himachal, Utter Pradesh, Delhi and other state of India to the communal frenzy of the ruling class in India.

They condemned the attack on a young businessman and intimidation of others as a grave cause of concern for us and warned that if necessary measures of protecting their lives are not frozen immediately it might have consequences otherwise.
