Govt Hiding Its Failures Behind Veil of Misinformation: Farooq Abdullah


SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and member of parliament from Srinagar Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said that the LG administration is employing a veil of misinformation to obscure the actual conditions prevailing in Kashmir.

Abdullah was addressing party functionaries of Lal Chowk Constituency at the party headquarters in Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.

Farooq Abdullah lamented that there was no semblance of development and accountability on ground and that officials are busy changing stripes among themselves. “People of Srinagar have lost an entire decade to misrule. There has been no headway on the projects started by NC. Most of them have either been left mid-way, and some of them have been put into cold storage for reasons known to those in power. Govt is only busy in pomp & show, the real issues confronting the people in terms of inflation, unemployment, and development deficit continue to remain unaddressed,” he said.

He asked the party workers to make efforts to take the mission and vision of the party to every doorstep.

“We have to bust their lies with facts and figures. Much is being said about the quantum of development in Srinagar but if you scratch the surface you will see numbers and figures are being inflated to give a picture that isn’t there. Opening liquor shops, and squeezing people with the burden of taxes & tolls is not something to brag about. Our people are fighting challenges and so far there has been no respite from unemployment, inflation, ration crises, shortage of utility services, and basic facilities,” he added.
