Emphasising on the need of formulating a long-term policy to solve all problems of Jammu and Kashmir, People's Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Sunday said that Congress is equally responsible for prevailing trust-deficit between people of the state and the rest of the country.
"Like National Conference (NC), leadership of the Congress is also equally responsible for the prevailing anarchy, chaos and uncertainty," Sayeed said, while addressing a public meeting at Khanpur area of Nagrota assembly segment in support of party candidate Yash Pal Sharma.
Mufti reminded the gathering that it is a historical fact whenever Congress entered into alliance with NC, the state plunged into unprecedented crisis.
"It is coincidence that whenever both these parties shared power, alienation of people increased," he said, and added that like their previous experiments for enjoying power, the present NC-Congress coalition has also proved disastrous for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Coalition has been exposed due to its misdeed, mis-governance and mal-administration. So people are looking towards PDP to get them rid from the present anarchist dispensation," Sayeed said and observed that change is imminent in the state and the Centre, and the upcoming Lok Sabha elections "is a step forward towards change".
"PDP-led coalition regime had laid a foundation of mutual trust and confidence among inhabitants of various regions of the state", he said.
Observing that PDP is the real voice of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said that regional parties were emerging all over the country and PDP is the only regional party which enjoys faith and confidence of all sections of the society.
He said that PDP had played historic role in restoring peoples' faith in the democratic institutions. He mentioned that 2002 assembly elections were turning pointing in the history of the state when people realised they could change the government through their votes.
Sharma, Sammer Koul, Ved Mahajan and Shanti Devi also addressed the meetings.
