AIP not to participate in by-polls
‘Accuses NC, PDP of bulldozing idea of main stream politics in J&K’
SRINAGAR, Mar 20: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Rasheed today announced that party will not participate in upcoming parliamentary by-elections for Anantnag and Srinagar seats.

Rashid while announcing party decision in a press conference in Srinagar said that though party strongly believes in democratic process and the available forums including Assembly and Parliament are the best places to plead Kashmir cause, but the main political parties including National Conference and Congress have not only disappointed Kashmiris but are also responsible in creating a situation where one feels ashamed to seek votes, as these parties have always tried to represent New Delhi in Kashmir rather representing Kashmir in New Delhi by acting like collaborators.

“The terrible events of last eight months in particular have proven that the elected representatives of both ruling and opposition parties have failed to make any impact on both civil and police administration and whatsoever the security agencies have deemed proper for their interests, they have ruthlessly implemented it,” he added.

He further said “the events and all other evidences and records are ample proof to confess that AIP despite being a small political force has fought for the Right to Self Determination in and outside Assembly with sincerity, as party strongly believes that J&K is a dispute territory and New Delhi is not sincere in resolving the issue. However contesting elections or boycotting them carries no significance.”

“Participating in these elections or boycotting or non-participation doesn’t make anybody or organization pro-movement, anti-movement, anti-national or anti-India, as elections have been held in the past and undoubtedly they will be held till Kashmir issue is resolved,” he added and said. “Party has always tried to take a decision what situation demanded in the interest of people of J&K and its future course of action will depend on the ground situation and New Delhi’s response to situation in Kashmir.
