J and K MLA slams Omar CM Abdullah for failing to address people's grievances
A member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) of Jammu and Kashmir, Engineer Rashid slammed Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for failing to address grievances and said that it was only because of Pakistan that the voices of the Kashmir people was being heard.
Rashid said on Sunday that instead of asking Parvez Musharraf whether Pakistan was sincere or not, Abdullah should himself be sincere towards the people.
"Yesterday our chief minister asked Musharraf whether Pakistan is sincere. When he himself cannot remove AFSPA or remove ban on phone messages then how cane he ask Musharraf whether he is sincere?" said Rashid.
"Infect I think if Pakistan was not there then our condition would be similar to the Palestinians of today. We are here in a big jail our voice does not reach the outside world. I have no particular fondness for Pakistan, but if it was not for Pakistan raising our issues, then they (India) will take us for granted," he Rashid.
Earlier on Saturday Abdullah had asked former Pakistani president whether Pakistan is sincere or not on the issue of terrorism.
Exiled General Parvez Musharraf said yesterday that extremism was 'out of control' in his home country and expressed pessimism over the State's ability to rein in militant groups.
