JAMMU, Jan 31: Socialistic Democratic Party (SDP) leader, Dr Darakshan Andrabi today said that both the coalition partners- Congress and NC were making joke of their party’s credibility with regard to the creation of new Administrative units and 73rd amendment for providing powers to the Panchayats in the State.
Addressing a press conference here today, Dr Andrabi pointed out that National Conference and Congress leadership remained sleeping over the issue of creation of new administrative units (Niabats, blocks and tehsils) in last five years and now suddenly when the elections are drawing nearer and the code of conduct is going to be announced, Omar Government has launched a new plank of creating new administrative units in hush- hush manner and that too, without applying much mind and conducting thorough exercise.
Dr Andrabi said that political favour and `fervour’ has superseded all feasibilities needed for the formation of new administrative units in the State. She said when on every vital issue concerning the people’s welfare and 73rd Amendment, the coalition partners were on roads, clash every now and then spreading venom against each other, then what other than enjoying the luxury of power binds them together to be in coalition. “It is in no way a process of creating new administrative units in the state, but in reality, it is a process of misleading people yet again. The leadership of both the coalition partners has made a joke of their party’s credibility,” Dr Andrabi maintained.
SDP president said that the present Government has failed to prove itself a unit even after a long five years’ friendship of compromise and self-interests and 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. She said that nothing will be achieved politically by the ruling coalition by this tricky move full of defects and controversies as the people were wise enough as the people have clearly decided to go for a political change after rejection all rotten political ideas and their propagators.
