Opposition PDP in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday attacked the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre over its "failure" in making any progress on the political front in the state, and said it will "determinedly" make any future political formation at the Centre to work on both internal and external dimensions of Kashmir issue.


"There is an atmosphere of change both at the national as well as local level and the PDP will determinedly make any future political formation at the Centre to work on both internal and external dimensions of Kashmir issue," PDP patron and former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said.

Coming down heavily on the UPA government, Sayeed said the government was not able to address the Kashmir issue over the last ten years and instead derailed the entire reconciliation process started by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

He was addressing party leaders, legislators and workers of Srinagar parliamentary constituency at his official residence here.

He said the hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad.

Afzal Guroo was the "most unfortunate" thing that could have happened in any democratic country.

"The Congress and National Conference (which is part of UPA II) went ahead with this without realising the sensitivities of the people of Kashmir," he said.
