AIP marches to Martyr’s graveyard
Governor insulted his constitutional position by not visiting Martyrs graveyard: Er. Rasheed
Srinagar 13 July: Coming down heavily on state government for convening meeting of administrative secretaries on eve of Martyr’s Day, AIP President Er. Rasheed has alleged that those who were the real heirs of Martyrs have been caged, jailed and restricted to their residences.
A press release issued here by the party said that party leader, despite restrictions, visited the martyrs graveyard and offered fateh there alongiwth other party workers and supporters.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Er. Rasheed warned New Delhi of dire consequences for trying to dilute the sanctity of martyr’s days and sought immediate action against Jammu Bar Association for using derogatory language against the martyrs. He said “While fringe and communal elements are busy in hatching conspiracies in Jammu region, ignoring the fact that the martyrs sacrificed for the people of entire state, Chief Secretary in a horrible and shameful incident has convened a meeting of administrative secretaries in civil secretariat just to dilute the sanctity of martyr’s day. Being a public servant chief secretary should have conducted programes to pay tributes to those martyrs whom everyone recognizes cutting across political ideologies. It is disgraceful that even Governor preferred to skip the function. Neither BJP nor their any allay visited martyr’s graveyard and party is thus continuing to give 13 July a communal color,” Rasheed lamented.
He further said that the ‘proxies of New Delhi’ had exposed themselves by trying to implement ‘RSS agenda’ through backdoor channels and alleged that Mehbooba Mufti and Omer Abdullah had no moral right to visit martyrs graveyard and ‘insult’ their sacrifices. “Both are not only power hungry but have the one point agenda to dilute the cause of all those martyrs who have been sacrificing from 13 July 1931 till date. It is disgraceful that while Omar Abdullah prays tributes to martyrs in Srinagar, Davindar Rana seeks holiday for Maharaja in Jammu. As long as they continue to talk about autonomy and self-rule they would be seen as collaborators and who doesn’t know that both NC and PDP have butchered Kashmiris and whatsoever they say carries no meaning. It is shameful Mehbooba rather talking about sacrifices of martyrs of 13 July 1931 threatens of emerging of 1987 like situation if New Delhi tries to divide her party,” Rasheed added.
