Coalition drama in J&K a "stage mockery": SDP
Socialistic Democratic Party president Darakhshan Andrabi on Friday criticised the state government for behaving like "road-Romeos" while making unnecessary hue and cry in the minds of the people with regard to the formation of new administrative units.
"The coalition drama on the formation of new administrative units in Jammu and Kashmir is a stage mockery. The government seems to be in a hurry to go ahead with the defective formation for political interests only," said Andrabi.
"The government wants to divert the attention of the people from its disappointing performance," said the SDP president.
She added that political favour had superseded all feasibilities needed for the formation of new administrative units in Jammu and Kashmir.
"It is in no way a process of creating new administrative units, but a process of misleading people yet again. The leadership of both the coalition partners has made a joke of their party's credibility," said Andrabi.
The SDP president said that the present government had failed to prove itself a unit even after five years of compromise.
"Their credibility in the masses has eroded to a level where the framing of new administrative units at this juncture was being looked as a suspicious exercise by the people," said Andrabi.
She said that this exploitation of sentiments at the time of elections had been a practice of all the political parties of the state right from 1947.
"Nothing would be achieved by this tricky and controversial move, as the people were wise enough to decide their representatives. The state has clearly decided to go for a political change," said Andrabi.
