Salahuddin Will Shift Base When Need Arises: UJC

Srinagar: Reacting to Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Prasad’s recent statement challenging United Jihad Council chief Syed Salahuddin to issue threats from Kashmir, UJC spokesman Thursday said he will shift base when need arises. “For military reasons, the UJC chief is where he is. If the situation demands him to shift to the base, he will not delay it. Hizbul Mujahideen chief doesn’t need challenges from Indian officers”, UJC spokesman Syed Sadaqat Hussain told a local news gathering agency, KNS. Ridiculing the statement of DGP, he said, “Prasad should benefit from the experiences of former CRPF Inspector General N C Asthana, who had said that resolve of Kashmiri people can neither be broken through force nor elections”. Referring to threat issued by Salahuddin to panchayat members, Sadaqat said, “A section of the media had distorted his statement. He had said that Indian ministers and authorities were misusing panchs and sarpanchs for their cheap objectives and people of Kashmir were against it, so in the larger interest of the people, they should resign. He had said that panchs and sarpanchs can die anywhere and no weapon was needed to kill them because they cannot protect themselves from the changing sentiments of the people towards them. His statement was misrepresented”. On huge turnout for election to four Legislative Council seats under panchayat Quota, UJC spokesperson said the panchayat members will have to be accountable for their ‘anti-movement role. “Despite earnest appeals from separatist and militant leadership, the panchayat members took part in the polls and wittingly or unwittingly strengthened Indian propaganda. They will have to be accountable for such anti-movement actions”. “We’re are committed and ready to take the movement to its logical conclusion. Nobody will be allowed to enter into any sell out,” he added.
