Srinagar: Calling the dissolution of Jammu and Kashmir Assembly by Governor Satya Pal Malik a “match-fixing between various stakeholders”, independent lawmaker Er Rasheed has said that it is yet again proven that there is a controlled democracy in J&K.
In a statement issued on Thursday Rasheed said, “While Governor’s decision to dissolve the Assembly was unconstitutional and immoral following what NC, PDP, and Congress claimed as hectic efforts to form the government, the reaction and response to Governor’s decision by the constituents of Grand Alliance is disgusting and disappointing.”
He said that Dr. Farooq Abdullah without wasting a second welcomed Governor’s move and Congress leadership started changing its statements. “PDP by not challenging the Governor’s decision in the Court got itself exposed to the real designs it had planned to achieve through this drama. It is obvious that none of the three constituents wanted to form the government and by just posturing themselves as defenders of Article 35-A and 370 they were addressing their own constituencies and executing the plan to keep Sajad Lone away from breaking PDP and forming the government.”
Rasheed added that NC patron Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s welcoming dissolution of Assembly is ample proof to conclude that NC had a total understanding with the governor and the New Delhi, even PDP seems to have given its consent for dissolution of Assembly behind the curtains only to keep its folk together.
He said, “it is obvious that BJP didn’t want to annoy Sajad Lone too and citing the pressure building tactics by so-called grand alliance as the reason, New Delhi took him on board to dissolve Assembly and saved PDP also from getting divided into few groups.
“By dissolving Assembly Governor had obliged NC leadership as well, as under no circumstances NC would have liked a PDP man as Chief Minister. It is crystal clear that both NC and PDP have yet again been fooled masses and are adamant with their egos and have one point agenda to grab power, otherwise New Delhi would never have dared to execute the murder of democracy.”
Rasheed added that it is obvious that under a well-crafted plan scripted in New Delhi, masses have been encouraged to shift their sympathies back towards New Delhi’s proxies like NC and PDP so that not only coming elections are made a success but the interests of NC and PDP are also safeguarded.
Rasheed appealed masses to introspect and defeat the nefarious designs of New Delhi and its extension wings in J&K by understanding the fact that these so-called regional parties have just one point agenda to grab power, irrespective of the fact whatsoever it may cost to Kashmiris.
