The Omar Abdullah-led government remains unmoved when it comes to addressing graft issue in Jammu and Kashmir despite notices to its ministers from the State Accountability Commission over corruption and favouritism, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said on Monday.
"Despite notices from the SAC on appointment of advisers, the state government is still unmoved....," she told reporters here.
"They (government) are out to create a defence or run for shelter in legal course instead of becoming transparent and morally upright."
The PDP chief wondered how could the Chief Minister himself act against corrupt ministers and fight graft when he himself was under the scanner in the Yousuf murder case.
She claimed that there had been an erosion of faith in the chief minister's office which was a sad account of misgovernance in the state.
The government does not bother about problems like misuse of money under National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS), loss of water resources and rising power crisis, she alleged.
