Congress alone can defeat fascist forces: Mir
Srinagar, April 25: Maintaining that Congress party was fully capable enough to defeat the communal & fascist forces both in the country and state hell bent upon to abrogate Special Status granted to J&K, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) & party candidate from Anantnag parliamentary constituency G.A. Mir has said that Congress is fighting present elections against the divisive forces and communal agenda of BJP-RSS.
Mir also hit out at “opportunist parties” PDP, BJP and others for misleading people on various sensitive issues concerning J&K for electoral gains, saying that the policy of falsehood & deceit adopted by these opportunist parties has made the lives of people in Kashmir impossible and sought people’s support to put an end to the drama being staged by PDP, from time to time to generate sympathy after failing people on all fronts.
This was stated by G.A. Mir while addressing various public meetings at Panzgam Nad, Varel Kund in Devsar Assembly Constituency in District Kulgam and appealed the people to remain vigilant about the designs of PDP and other opportunist parties who were fully dependent on falsehood and deceit to exploit people to serve their vested interests, but at the same time, he (Mir) felt confident that people of south Kashmir and elsewhere in J&K have realized as to what PDP was doing to mislead them again.
He was accompanied by Senior Congress Leaders Haji Ab. Rashid Dar, Mohd Amin Bhat, Hilal Ahmad Shah, Vinod Koul, Farooq Ahmad Bhat, Adv Hashim and others.
Asserting that it is the Congress, which can protect the Special Status of the J&K State and will ensure equitable development of all the three regions, G. A. Mir lashed out at BJP Chief Amit Shah over repeatedly raking up the issues of Article 370 in his election rallies aiming to mislead people on this count, the fact of the matter remains that BJP cannot even touch it, as that, the Article 370 works as a bridge between State & the Centre, besides that, it has the emotional binding with the people in J&K. Whatever Narinder Modi or Amit Shah say in their rallies for public consumption was far from reality. Both (Modi & Amit Shah) want to change the narrative, which will be defeated tooth and nail, G.A. Mir said.
He said the communal and fascist forces were hell bent upon to divide the people of JK on religious and regional lines, but the Congress being the only unifying force in the Country and State will thwart their designs.
Mir also hit out at PDP for ensuring inroads to BJP RSS in the State and said many right thinking people had advised PDP leadership not to align with the BJP on the basis that this party has remained hell bent upon to abrogate special status for gaining political mileage in the Country, but the PDP leadership turned deaf ear and compromised on their core agenda for the sake of coming into the power, which has disappointed people at large scale, G.A. Mir added and appealed the people to use the opportunity of the present elections to defeat the political exploitation & deceit on the part of PDP and others.
Mir also said PDP was fully responsible for prevailing situation in valley especially in south Kashmir, besides loss of lives and regular incidents of violence because of its betrayal and political exploitation.

MCC an excuse to avoid redressal of burning issues: Rasheed
Srinagar, April 25: Asking state administration not to forget its duties towards common masses, AIP president Er Rasheed has sought immediate redressal of burning issues pertaining to common masses.
While interacting with people during his day-long visit in Kupwara Constituency Er Rasheed alleged that so-called model code of conduct has become an excuse and silly argument to those officers who don’t want to deliver and treat themselves beyond accountability.
Er Rasheed said, “Be it power crises or restoration of drinking water supply and other basic immunities, most of the officers have just one line answer that there is a model code of conduct in place. It is disgusting and shameful that the damaged transformers are lying in PDD workshops since months and concerned authorities don’t pay any heed towards genuine grievances of masses. The functioning of education, health and other prestigious sectors has been kept hostage to the model code of conduct. While there is no model or moral code of conduct for the corrupt Bhabus, even routine files of the common man are being thrown to the dustbin with the excuse that there is a model code of conduct in place.”
Er Rasheed urged the governor to take serious note of sufferings of masses and ensure that all essential services run without any interruptions and excuses.
