The opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday took potshots at ruling National Conference (NC) led coalition regime for “pushing the state once again into unprecedented crises due to the mis-governance.
“Except promises nothing concerted has been done by this government during the last 15 months,” said PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, while addressing one-day convention of the party card holders at Pulwama this afternoon.
She alleged the present regime appear only on papers “because the ruling elites were more particular about issuing press statements and conducting photo sessions to befool the people rather than taking effective steps on grounds”.
Claiming mis-governance of the NC-led regime would further fuel alienation among the common masses, Mehbooba said: “It is unfortunate for the state that this regime has failed to the come up to the expectations of the people.”
The PDP president claimed that neither this government can carry forward the reconciliatory process nor the developmental activities initiated by the previous PDP-Congress coalition.
“Inability of the NC government to respond to the peoples’ problems could have a negative fall out on the situation in the sensitive state,” she added.
She cautioned that the situation has been sliding back to pre-2002 situation due to wrong policies of this dispensation. “In its tenure of 15 months this regime has exposed because it has reneged on all promises made with the people during the last assembly elections,” said Mehbooba.
Expressing her grave concern over mounting problems of the common people due to indifferent attitude of the present dispensation, she observed that instead of concentrating on ground situation the National Conference led coalition has looking for one after another excuse to shift blames of its failures on the others.
“Instead of fulfilling the promises which the ruling party had made with the people during the assembly elections, this government has been looking for excuses to hide its failures,” she alleged.
