Karnah, April 05 (KNO) : Urging Army, police and civil administration to have mercy on people of Karnah, AIP’s president and candidate for Lok Sabha Baramulla constituency Er Rasheed Friday asked government to explain why every single person cutting across age and gender has to face humiliation and hardship for hours together at Sadhna top while travelling in or travelling from Karnah. In a statement issued to KNO, Er Rasheed had exchange of ‘hot words’ with the Army officer at Sadhna top where dozens of vehicles including Ambulance were halted and in the name of ‘entry’ they were being made to suffer for hours together due to this ‘unwanted humiliating process’, which is there is practice since long and not only results in wastage of their precious time but their lives too are put to danger as the traffic jam so caused puts the vehicles prone to the threats of slides and avalanches. Er Rasheed has brought the matter in the notice of core commander after the incident and was assured of abolishing all those unnecessary checks and entries which would cause inconvenience to the masses. Earlier, addressing a public gathering at Tangdar, Er Rasheed said that if Kartarpur corridor can be opened in Punjab, why should Kashmiris be punished for closing the traditional routes between two sides of Kashmir and if these links are opened the miseries of Kashmiris in general and those of far-flung areas of Karnah will come to an end. Appreciating people of Karnah for showing overwhelming response to the pro-people agenda of AIP, Er Rasheed said, “Neither Mehbooba Mufti nor Sajad Lone or Omer Abdullah have a right to even seek votes from people of Karnah as all the three regional parties have derived pleasure and entertainment from the sufferings of people of Karnah.” “If all these three parties who have remained in power from time to time could not provide a tunnel at the Sadhna top, construct a fear weather road between Chowkibal and Kanah and provide basic immunities to people of Karnah and Karen they should feel ashamed while asking for votes in the entire Karnah constituency,” he said. Er Rasheed while seeking special package for border areas like Karnah, Gurez, Keren, Machil, Uri, Nowgam and Poonch Rajouri asked government if Kashmiri Pandits are entitled to get benefitted from various schemes for being migrants, why should not hundreds of families in Karnah, Karen and Bore valleys be given special packages whose land and other movable assets have been destroyed by natural climate or Army has occupied them when they were forced to migrate to other side of LOC in 1989. Later, Er Rasheed addressed more than a dozen rallies in Handwara and Kupwara assembly segments at Haftrada, Phalmarg, Taratpora, Keegam, Kandi and Nutnussa and thanked people for listening to him. Er Rasheed reiterated that it is not possible for traditional politicians to stop a possible revolt against them and said that this parliament election will be beginning of a new era in the history of J&K. He appealed Shah Faesal to support him for the larger interests of people of J&K. “It is appropriate time when sincere pro people voices should come forward and throughout the dynasty politics being trusted upon them by NC, PDP and PC,” he said.(KNO)
