Srinagar 01 May: Asking State Govt. to come clean on huge number of outsiders who every year occupy state land in various towns and in Srinagar city, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the issue is of a serious nature and needs immediate and concrete time bound action.
A spokesman of the party in a statement said that addressing a function in Srinagar organized to welcome prominent entrepreneur and political activist Sheeban Ashai in AIP, Rasheed said that we are not against those who come to state as tourists, working class and other professionals but huge entry of baggers and suspicious migrants is unacceptable.
“It is strange while Army, police and other agencies are frequently busy is collecting data of various sorts by infiltrating privacy of the permanent citizens of state, no agency from the Govt. is keeping an eye on the flooded entry of thousands of outsiders, who don’t work in any private or state sector as skilled or unskilled laborers,” the spokesman quoted Rashid as saying.
Welcoming Sheeban Ashai into party fold, Rasheed appealed youth to come forward to strengthen AIP’s efforts for resolution to Kashmir dispute in accordance with the sentiments and wishes of Kashmiri people.
