Grabbing power only agenda of PDP: Omar

Terming the PDP a 'property developer party', chief minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday said that all turncoats, corrupt and unscrupulous elements have joined the PDP to make fortunes at the cost of the interests of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

"You have witnessed the fielding of corruption-tainted candidates and people with stigmatised profile by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in elections which speaks volumes about the credentials of the PDP and its leadership", Omar said and added that grabbing power for personal interests and accumulating wealth are the only political agenda of the PDP.

Omar while addressing rallies at Surankote, Poonch and Mendhar on Sunday said that PDP, Congress, BJP and other power thirsty parties imposed elections on the people of J&K, who were suffering from devastating flood and had lost their economy, crops, property, residential houses and other belongings in the floods.

"In fact these parties wanted their political rehabilitation at first rather than the rehabilitation of the flood sufferers", he added.

Omar criticised the Congress leadership for making false statements against the NC. "I have not compelled you to forge alliance with us and accept me the chief minister of the state for six years. It was the decision of the Congress party and its leadership", he said.

He said during over five-and-half-year of the coalition government the Congress leadership found no fault in the NC or in the government-led by the NC and suddenly in the election period it is putting all blame on the NC.

Omar said that when he took over the chief minister of J&K, the earlier government of Congress and PDP had put the state into the situation of clashes, confusion, communal frenzy, regional bias, hatred and retrogress.

Omar described the pretended Kashmir friendly intentions of the BJP as a mirage and its sympathy with people as crocodile tears. He said the BJP cannot astray people on false narrations on spending of funds. He said in three constituencies of Poonch, Surankote and Mendhar alone more than `1000 crore projects have been launched in the last six years particularly in the communication, health and education sectors.

Omar said like in 1977, all anti-NC forces have joined together at this time again to damage the mass base of the NC, but the people will give them befitting reply by bringing the NC back to power.
