Ruling People’s Democratic Party on Sunday said the present dispensation under Mufti Mohammad Sayeed will not only clear the “pending muck” but the state will also march towards an “unprecedented” development.

"All the steps towards development of the people will be taken in the most efficient and transparent manner," said PDP chief spokesperson Dr Mehboob Beg.

Beg castigated the previous regime for leaving behind a `9,000 crore liability.

"It has come to the fore that the previous government had not only left behind a huge liability but also sanctioned an amount to the tune of `3,000 crore without adhering to a transparent system like e-tendering and compliance of the Codal formalities," he said.

He also pointed-out that an amount of `1,065 crore was not released due to the failure of the previous government to hold local body elections.

Beg alleged the inability of the previous government to submit the ‘completion certificates’ with regard to a number of central government schemes, leading to further dead-locks.

Beg recalled the two commissions established under GM Sadiq’s tenure, which had come to the conclusion that the state was witnessing an ‘Inter-regional discrimination’.

Beg underlined that Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had described the present political situation, as thrown-up by the 2014 Assembly elections as a historic opportunity to bring together all regions of the state.

“Such a situation needed deft handling, flexible attitude, experience and an accommodative leadership which could only be provided by a leader like Sayeed," he added.

He also lauded the deputy chief minister’s statement where-in he advocated demanding of dues from the NHPC.

He said while considering cases like establishment of AIIMS or IIMs, it would be prudent to take into consideration factors like ‘connectivity’ and places which get ‘cut-off’ every now and then would certainly need more care and attention.
