Arvind Kejriwal to hold rally in Kashmir this April

Srinagar: Arvind Kejriwal is arriving in Kashmir valley in the first week of April where he would lead a rally from Char-e-Sharief to Ganderbal, an Aam Admi Party activist from Kashmir said on Sunday.

Dr Muzafar Bhat, who is AAP’s candidate for Lok Sabha in Srinagar, while reacting to the recent statement of Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Sunday claimed that no pro-freedom leader in Kashmir can end the growing menace of corruption in the state and that his party has promised the achievable for the people of Kashmir.

Geelani’s group had said that Kejriwal and Modi are the faces of the same coin. “Like the roles of Farooq Abdullah and Mufti Sayed are dangerous and harmful for the Kashmir cause, so in the same way every person who will vote or support AAP or any other pro-Indian party, will commit an act of treason,” the octogenarian leader’s forum had said.

Bhat while reacting to the allegations leveled by the senior resistance leaders said people of Kashmir are going through the most turbulent times and that the roots of corruption in the state have deepened seriously. “The corruption in Kashmir must end and for the same it is the need of the hour that someone within the system has to eradicate it.”

He stated that the people of Kashmir have witnessed since decades the worst power crises and huge tariffs for the same. ”Every time the people of valley have been promised that the power crises will end but nothing concrete was done so far .”

I want to ask Geelani sahib that shouldn’t the corruption from the stand end, should people be given proper electricity, said he said, adding that the pro-freedom camp cannot end these types of people’s woes and that it is within the system that these crises can end.

“Mirwaiz Umar keeps on cornering the government at Jamia Masjid over worst power crises in the state. I want to ask these leaders that who is going to rectify the power crises in Kashmir and who will strive so that the corruption could end,” Bhat said.

He added further that it is the policy of the separatists to speak against mainstream and that he would not interfere into it. However, he maintained that the people of Kashmir must understand that AAP is fighting for their day to day issues within the system and it has noting do with the ideology of any political party here.
