Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday alleged that the present coalition is identified only with crime, corruption and continuing atrocities on the citizens.
Speaking after visiting Laisar, Rafiabad, where a man was killed in security forces firing, Mehbooba said,"This government has promoted a culture of impunity in the state through its inaction and incompetence. Be it killing of innocents by security forces or police, instances of gross corruption and malpractices by ministers and officials or crimes like the killing of Haji Yusuf this government has adopted a standard practice of announcing meaningless probes to take heat off the moment," alleged Mehbooba.
She said no probe has been taken to its logical conclusion. "This attitude has resulted in serious erosion of credibility of all institutions of the state and Omar Abdullah for sheer lust of power is inflicting incalculable damage to the long term interests of people, Mehbooba said.“This government has completely lost the ability to govern or protect the interests of peaceful citizens” she added.
Mehbooba along with party general secretary Mohammad Dilawar Mir visited Ashiq Hussain's house but were prevented by a group of angry residents. "The young men were agitating against the atrocities committed by police last night by using teargas shells and lathies to beat the protestors including women and children," said Mehbooba.
The PDP president said since day one the present government has been able only to dismantle whatever little the state had been able to achieve by way of restoration of peace or administrative systems. "By making young men vulnerable once again to state excesses the government has put the future of the state at stake, she regretted and said the long rope that the people of J&K have given to NC could finally snap if Omar Abdullah’s crime against people continued," said Mehbooba.
