With Congress and PDP locking horns over demilitarisation in Jammu and Kashmir, opposition National Conference on Sunday said the people of the state are fed up with the infighting between the two coalition partners and want an end to their rule.

"The infighting and wrong policies of the coalition government has added to the hardships being faced by the people and they are eagerly awaiting an end to this government," former minister and Leader of Opposition in Jammu and Kashmir assembly Abdul Rahim Rather said.

The war of of words between Congress and PDP over demilitarisation intensified on Saurday with Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad ruling out any troops reduction and the junior alliance partner saying offhand remarks could jeopardise peace process.

"Common people are bearing the brunt of infighting and internal differences between the coalition partners," Rather told a meeting at the party headquarters in Srinagar.

"The people have developed a strong hatred against the present inefficient, indolent and anti-people government," he said adding there is absence of work culture in offices.
