Former Chief Minister and National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah on Friday lashed out at the PDP-BJP Government of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for an acute governance crisis that has forced people to come out on the roads across the length and breadth of the State.
Interacting with numerous public delegations at his constituency office in Beerwah today, Omar Abdullah said the acute governance crisis and present situation of maladministration was PDP’s gift to the people of the State.
“The power woes and the NFSA-related ration crisis in the State are unprecedented. People are out on the roads screaming for their basic rights as the Government has failed completely within the first 10 months of its tenure. Beerwah constituency for instance has been pushed into darkness as the electricity cuts here are unprecedented and back-breaking, especially in the harsh cold of the winter. There is a shortage of essential commodities as the Government has broken all records of its demonstrated insensitivity by reducing the previous ration allocation of the people under the pretext of the NFSA – an act that we had opposed for the State,” Omar Abdullah said.
The National Conference Working President and MLA Beerwah also castigated the administration for neglecting Beerwah constituency and dispensing governance selectively based on its partisan political interests. “The people of Beerwah understand how they are being persecuted and robbed of their basic rights and I assure them that I will continue to work for their rights and will continue to fight for the development of Beerwah,” Omar added.
On this occasion Omar released an amount of 20 lakh from his constituency development fund for the improvement of power infrastructure, drainage, link roads and footpaths in the constituency. This includes an exclusive amount of fifty thousand rupees for patient to buy essential medicines in times of need, a party statement said this evening.
