Engineer Rasheed of the Awami Ittehad Party is an independent MLA from Langate constituency in the valley. Rasheed had been in news recently for going to JNU and spewing venom against India, its Prime Ministers – Manmohan Singh, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Narendra Modi. Worst of all, he pointed fingers at the Indian Army.
As has been common, the leadership in Jammu: in government, outside it and other forums had no idea about Rasheed’s most recent antics at Jawahar Lal Nehru University which were received with loud applause by members of JNUSU.
The leadership in Jammu, unanimously expressed shock and demanded that Er Rasheed be put behind bars for violating the norms of constitution that he is under the oath of.
