Awami Itehad Party chief and MLA Langate, Abdul Rashid Sheikh has demanded an end to flow of non-state subjects into Kashmir valley, arguing that their credentials and whereabouts are not known.
Addressing public meetings at Malaknag Anantnag, Kelam Kulgam and Hawal Srinagar today Rashid said from Qazigund to Karnah thousands of non-state subject and homeless families have occupied thousands of kanals of land and started constructing temporary huts.
“While Kashmiris need to prove their identity not only in other states but in their own hamlets to security agencies, this uninvited army of beggars is at liberty to occupy any place. It is ironic that neither local police nor any other security agency carries out any verification about these unknown families. There is no record available with the state government as to who they are and why are they here constructing temporary huts,” Rashid added and asked government to take measures halt their entry into J&K.
