The ruling National Conference today criticised the Peoples Democratic Party for having an "anti-people" and "anti-development" attitude and said the opposition party is putting hurdles in smooth functioning of the government in J-K.

"The PDP is trying to ruin the peace, economy and development of the state as it is pained and frustrated by the defeat suffered in 2008 Assembly elections and subsequent Parliamentary elections," Jammu president of NC Rattan Lal Gupta told reporters here.

"PDP is in league with vested elements and is creating confusion among the people and putting hurdles in the smooth functioning of the government," Gupta alleged.

He said his party welcomes Centre's dialogue with Pakistan and move to replace CRPF with J-K police in the valley.

"Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's statement regarding replacement of CRPF by J-K police is encouraging for the people of the state," Gupta said.

He said continuous strikes in the valley are harming the economic interest of the people.

"These hartals have ruined the business of shopkeepers, transporters, hoteliers, houseboat owners, carpet weavers and handicrafts workers.
