PDP leader Muzaffar Hussain Beig has asked ruling NC to look into the report card of its five years of rule, instead of questioning the PDP’s brief tenure in the government. He was addressing public meetings at Sheikhpora and Telwan in Shangus constituency in south Kashmir.
Beig alleged NC with its political designs and lust for power has brought the state to the verge of bankruptcy, as governance is crumbling and chaos prevailing in the system and the rulers has nothing to offer as their achievements. “PDP’s three years in power outweigh NC’s forty years during which they received overwhelming support of people whom they deceived and backstabbed at every crucial juncture”, Baig alleged.
Accusing Omar Abdullah of miserably failing to rule the state, Omar alleged that he using his friendship in New Delhi only to be in the power without caring about the people’s aspirations. The PDP, on the other hand, used its stint in power for the welfare of the people and got liberal funding both from the NDA and UPA governments that helped a great deal to change the development scenario of the state. “A difference was felt on the ground and everyone around talks about that with all sincerity,” he said.
For remain in power and showing their loyalty to Delhi, Beig said three chief ministers from Abdullah family have sold out around one dozen feasible power projects to New Delhi. NC is projecting people of J&K as beggars in Delhi, which is brazen insult to the people’s sentiments, he stated. Baig attributed state’s present crisis to NC’s “sellouts and mismanagement of state resources”.
