Senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader and Member of Parliament, Muzzafar Hussain Baig Thursday said the game is up for the ruling coalition in Jammu and Kashmir as the people have made up their mind to throw it away in the forthcoming assembly elections in the state. He also said the PDP will continuously raise and fight for the people’s rights both in and outside the state.
Addressing a public meeting at Uri constituency in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, he said the people are counting days to see the end of the National Conference-Congress government in the state which has got them nothing but miseries and pain over the years. “Both NC and Congress are responsible for the sufferings of the people,” he said.
Baig said given the public anger against the Omar Abdullah-government the people of the state will soon elect a government of their choice, which will take care of their aspirations and emotions well. The PDP parliamentarian said his party, with the support of the people, will write a new future for the state. He said there is an urge for change amongst the people and the PDP is going to the people’s court to seek a clear mandate in the coming elections on the basis of its performance both in the government and opposition.
Baig alleged the ruling National Conference has always been taking the people for ride, institutionalizing corruption and nepotism, damaging the democratic institutions, inflicting injuries on people, patronizing crime and compromising the interests of the state over the last eight decades. And, its present tenure, Baig said is one of the worst the people could have ever imagined of. “The people will in no case forgive the sins and crimes of the ruling party politicians and they will go down in the history for bringing disrepute, misfortune and disgrace to the state and pain to the people,” he said.
