Opposition PDP in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday said the state was reeling under shortage of food grains and power supply and accused the ruling coalition of putting people in distress.
As the NC-Congress combine has "failed" to look into the basic problems confronting the people, especially those living in rural areas, the state is facing acute shortage of water, power and rations, senior PDP leaders alleged while addressing a one-day conference of party workers in Anantnag district.
"Failure of the coalition government to deliver is leading to distress among common masses," senior PDP leader and MLA Abdul Rehman Veeri said.
While the people have been left at the mercy of God, the ministers and officers are high only on propaganda and photo opportunities, he said.
Alleging that the situation had worsened on all fronts ever since the NC-Congress combine had taken over the reins of power, PDP MLA Mansoor Hussain, who also addressed the rally, said the lack of proper approach on the part of the coalition is only eroding the people's faith in the system.
The PDP leaders also asked party workers to establish contact with people at the grassroots and expose the parties in power.
