Expressing his concern over "deteriorating law and order situation" in the state, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) general secretary Thakur Balbir Singh on Sunday lambasted Omar Abdullah-led coalition regime for its failure in creating a sense of security among common masses.
In a statement issued after conducting a tour of the remote area of Billawar and adjoining localities, Thakur Balbir Singh said the fear psychosis has gripped inhabitants of Samba and Kathua district after twin militant attacks at Hiranagar and Samba on September 26.
He, however, regretted that authorities have failed to remove this sense of insecurity among people. "It seems that instead of inculcating confidence among fear-stricken masses, the state government is itself creating sense of insecurity among the people by giving irresponsible statements," Mr Singh said, adding that after September 26 attacks, rumour-mongers have become active but those at the helm have failed to properly inform the people about the situation on ground.
Singh, while narrating incidents of higher reaches of Billawar, said there was a feeling among people that a large number of infiltrators have managed to sneak into this side and they have been roaming freely in some areas.
He asked the authorities to take some effective steps to revive shattered confidence of the people. The PDP general secretary alleged that it was a historical fact that the National Conference always creates a sense of fear and insecurity among people through its deceit tactics because this party wants to reap political benefit of chaos and confusion in the State.
"Whenever the National Conference comes to power, the state witnesses such chaos and anarchy because such confusing situation suits the NC," he said and called upon people to strengthen brotherhood and communal harmony at the time of crisis.
