Anantnag, Mar 27: Peoples Democratic Party Monday said that South Kashmir has been the worst victim of the atrocious policies and politics of National Conference-Congress combine bringing miseries to the people.
The Congress party is equally responsible for the mess which the National Conference has created in the state, senior PDP leader and Minister Abdul Haq Khan said while addressing a well attended public meeting in Noorabad assembly segment along with MLA Noorabad Abdul Majeed Paddar. The minister also addressed another public meeting at Chawalgam in Kulgam assembly segment.
The party’s Vice President Sartaj Madani and constituency Incharge and Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri along with Minister Haji Farooq Andrabi, Minister Zahoor Mir, MP Nazir Ahmed Laway, MLA`s Mohammad Yusuf Bhat and Aijaz Mir conducted series of public meetings across Anantnag-Pulwama Parliamentary constituency in order to seek votes for party candidate Tassaduq Hussain Mufti.
Khan said that South Kashmir has borne the brunt of regressive and cruel politics of National Conference. “Congress & NC have been at forefront of unleashing terror, corruption, fraud and loot of state resources and both the parties together are responsible for the quagmire we find ourselves in today, “he added.
He said that it was PDP and its president Mehbooba Mufti who reached out to the people of this trouble torn region reviving the hope and trust of people on democracy and democratic institutions. “PDP provided relief to the people by revocation of draconian POTA and obliteration of Special Task Force, which was formulated by NC government to create a reign of terror”, Khan said adding that after formation of government in 2002 the party translated all its promises into reality giving much needed relief to the people of state, especially South Kashmir.
“The state of Jammu and Kashmir was on the path of peace and development till 2008 when NC, Congress combine again took over the reign of power. Omar Abdullah is on record to say that he took over the state in a much better position than his predecessor. What followed in the next six years from 2008 to 2014 is known to everyone and we continue to face the brunt,”. (KNS)
