Addressing a day long convention of Party Delegates at Khanabal Anantnag today, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCCC) President G.A.

Mir also accused PDP of misleading people on Special Status, which is in great danger under the present dispensation.
He cautioned that any tinkering with the Article would be disastrous and asked BJP RSS to stop damaging the Special Status, the fire of which is going to engulf the entire state, he warned.
He told the gathering that it was evident to people from the day one that the coalition is full of contradictions, lacks any policy, besides having no roadmap to deal with the problems arising from time to time, but despite that both are in coalition opposing each other on certain sensitive issues responsible for the present prevailing situation in the State, Mir said.
He described the ruling dispensation as two sides of the river, but at the sametime both (PDP BJP) are in coalition to enjoy power only by not caring about the wellbeing of the people & development of the State, which has come to standstill in every respect, he said.
Mir said people have realized that since the day PDP BJP came into power, the situation turned from bad to worse, due to the misrule and mismanage on their part.
Mentioning that one wonders that despite huge damages caused to both life and property in valley, the PDP is behaving as nothing wrong has happened, but I can tell you that day is not far, when people in South, Central and North Kashmir would launch a valley vide agitation against the anti-people polices of PDP, Mir told the party delegates.
