Ruling National Conference on Friday said that while its workers were helping the flood-hit people of Jammu and Kashmir day and night, Opposition PDP was absent from the relief work.
"The rank and file of National Conference was helping the flood-affected people 24x7 by leading major relief and rehabilitation efforts in every flood-affected area in the state on the instructions of party president Farooq Abdullah and working president Omar Abdullah", NC Spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu said.
He said the party also salutes the inspiring spirit of resilience and empathy demonstrated by the people, especially the youth, in the darkest hours of this natural calamity.
Hitting directly at PDP, he said "Nothing could have been more petty and unfortunate. While Mehbooba Mufti continues to demoralise our officers and public servants who haven't gone home from the field in two weeks .some of them having lost kith and kin, Mufti Sayeed pretends to extend support to the state government after a span of three weeks".
Alleging the absence of PDP from the relief work, he said "Where are the PDP Members of Parliament even three weeks after the floods? Where did the PDP MLAs from South Kashmir disappear as if they didn't exist the moment South Kashmir got ravaged by flash floods?" "Mehbooba Mufti should first answer these questions and explain the shocking failure of her MLAs and MPs, including herself, in dispensing duties they were elected for", Mattu said.
The NC Spokesman said the government was defined by more than 4 lakh employees and not a few minister or legislators alone and they had had gone back to their jobs even while their homes were still marooned.
"The history of this flood will not be written by biased voices, political parties or propagandists but by the brave survivors and citizens of J-K," he added.
