KL Report


Patron of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mufti Mohammad Sayeed Sunday said the National Conference-Congress coalition government stands exposed for its non-performance and there are no takers for its hollow slogans now.

According to a statement Mufti said, “The NC and Congress have reneged on almost all the promises made with the people during last Assembly elections and the coalition government run by them seems to be a rudderless arrangement lacking direction and commitment,” Mufti said while addressing a mammoth public meeting organized by all zones of Jammu district and coordinated by Ab Hamid Choudhary, amidst heavy down-pours, in support of party candidate Yash Pal Sharma at historical Parade Ground in the heart of the Jammu city.

Braving inclement weather, thousands and thousands of people from different parts of Jammu district thronged Parade Ground to listen Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, who as a Chief Minister of the State had proved how to treat all sections of the society equally by providing equal opportunities of growth and development to all individuals.

“It was only during PDP led regime that residents of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh got the taste of good governance and they were made part of the decision making process”, Mufti said and reminded the gathering that PDP led government had laid foundation of balanced and equitable development in J&K.

 “PDP led regime has set an example of good governance and carved out a path of equitable development in the State”, Mufti said and sought support of Jammuities to implement visionary policies of the PDP.

He said that PDP wants to change destiny of the people of J&K and to set up a pro-people corruption free transparent and accountable system.  “It is my desire to make Jammu and Kashmir an island of peace wherein every individual will get equal opportunities to growth and development”, he said.

“During our short tenure in the government, PDP led regime had taken every possible effort to solve problems of the people”, he said and added that initiatives taken by the PDP led regime had yielded very encouraging results because faith of the people in the democratic institutions was restored and the commoner got the taste of good governance.

PDP patron, while highlighting achievements of his government, reminded the gathering that after formation of PDP led government various projects were started for the development of Jammu region. He especially mentioned that a comprehensive project funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) was exclusively implemented in Jammu to provide civic amenities to the people. “It was only during PDP led regime that Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions were equally empowered and all regions were given equal share in development”, he said.

Dubbing National Conference-Congress coalition as opportunist alliance, Mufti said that both the parties have entered into alliance without any programme and policies. “One and only aim of this alliance is to enjoy absolute power without caring wishes and aspirations of the people”, he said and added that the noticeable achievement of NC-Congress during the last five and half years is legalization of corruption. “It is very unfortunate that during the last five and half years J&K has earned the dubious distinction of being the most corrupt state where corruption has been sneaked from top to bottom”, he said.

Taking a dig at coalition partners for indulged into “shadow boxing”, Mufti said that this regime has brazenly bulldozed democratic institutions. He mentioned towards failure of the coalition to conduct urban local bodies election.
