Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said instead of using derogatory language against its opponents the National Conference should have come out with its performance report for their last 40 years in the government.

"Using abusive language against PDP can't stop the NC regime's downfall, which is very imminent, though,"she said, adding instead of providing good and corruption-free governance to the people, the present government was busy looting the state to build huge assets within and outside the state.

Addressing public meetings at Ramsoo and Banihal, Mehbooba said till now NC was able to get away without offering an account of its performance and misdeeds in the absence of a viable alternative, but now with the emergence of the PDP, it could not avoid presenting a report card and vision while seeking votes.

"PDP is having stakes in peace and stability, which the party had demonstrated during its brief tenure in the government when a perceptible change on the ground was brought about not only in the state, but huge headways were made to improve relations between India and Pakistan.

But NC is thriving on violence as they know people are not with them anymore and it is now looking for the ways to turn the situation ugly because it suits them,"she said.

She said the NC-Congress alliance had always proved fatal for the state. "It was this combination which forced youths to pick guns after rigging the 1987 assembly elections; now they have been compelled to pick stones,"she added.

"This combination has built vested interest in instability of J&K that is why the two have done everything to force the people, especially youth, to agitate whether on human right violations or for jobs, electricity, water, road, etc,"she added.

The ruling coalition would be remembered as the most "anti-people regime"in the history, where people were even deprived of full ration to their families and they had been made to pay hefty amounts for nonexistent power supplies, Mehbooba pointed out.

Mehbooba said, "After having miserably failed to fulfill their poll promises of providing jobs to all, including Class 8 pass, cheap power, cheap gas, good roads, clean drinking water, good health facilities etc, NC is now resorting to cheap tactics to divert attention from its failures."
