He cautioned people of politics of exploitation by PDP to garner support for its Candidates, but, at the sametime, he felt confident that people in the entire valley are aware how PDP backstabbed them by tying knot with communal forces after securing votes by playing with their emotions.

People have also realized that PDP is badly indulging in nepotism, favoritism and above all discrimination against the people, especially with poor and backward classes of the State.
