Quit MP posts before demanding special status: Kashmiri Pandit group to NC | India News – Times of India

SRINAGAR: Reconciliation, Return & Rehabilitations of Migrants — a group of migrant Kashmiri Pandits — on Wednesday advised National Conference MPs to quit membership of Parliament before any demand for restoration of special status of J&K.
Group’s chairman Satish Mahaldar questioned the sincerity of the mainstream leaders, who have forged a “so-called group” to fight for the restoration of the special status.
“A year after abrogation (of Article 370), so-called leaders have now woken up. But the question is: are they trustworthy? Do they have the sincerity to deliver? We know the answers but we fail to speak up. It is time to ponder and give the answers to the so-called tall leaders,” he said in a statement.
Satish said, the leaders, who were released from detention almost five months ago, never spoke anything on the restoration of statehood till August 24, 2020. “Farooq Abdullah and all other leaders should quit first as Lok Sabha MP and then talk on Article 370 and restoration of statehood as a common man. Let all political leaders, including Farooq Abdullah, give up government benefits like houses, security, perks and other stuff. Then we would consider their seriousness on making the demand for restoration of statehood,” he said.
Satish said neither Abdullah nor any other politician ever talked about the return of Kashmiri Pandits, who were driven out of Kashmir several decades ago.
“The majority population leadership of J&K has failed to protect the rights of… the minorities. They also failed to protect the greater autonomy of the state, which was given at the time of accession,” he added.
