SRINAGAR, Jan 13: Lashing out at PDP-BJP dispensation for failures on all fronts, the Pradesh Congress Committee(PCC) chief GA Mir urged upon the cadre to take on PDP-BJP exposing them for adopting double standards for the sake of power in the forth coming Panchayat elections.
Addressing workers’ meeting at PCC office here today, PCC chief hit out at PDP for changing colours like chameleon for the sake of power. He said this party sacrificed its ideology and joined hands with communal and fascist forces for the sake of power, as a result, people were feeling exploited and betrayed.
He said PDP-BJP combine can not escape the responsibility of damages caused to peace process, as both the parties have exploited people for power and are responsible for restlessness and mistrust among the people.
Urging the party cadre to gear up for Panchayat polls being conducted shortly, Mir said Congress party is committed to strengthen the democratic institutions of the State, but at the same time, he blamed the ruling dispensation for playing deceits over democratic process in the State, which has lost relevance under PDP-BJP rule. He said Congress party will ensure that the authority of democratic institutions is not eroded, although the ruling dispensation has already done great damages.
Stating that PDP with the fear of losing Anantnag Lok Sabha ensured deferment of Parliamentary elections on the pretext of deteriorating situation, now the ruling parties are going to hold Panchayat elections. “I want to ask the Govt as to what measures it will take to ensure safety and security of the contestants, for the fact that the situation in Kashmir valley has further deteriorated,” Mir remarked.
PCC Chief said people had a bitter experience as to what PDP has done in Kashmir and BJP in Jammu, as both the parties are working to strengthen themselves only rather than strengthening people. Corruption, nepotism, favoritism has become a hallmark PDP, as a result, they (People) have no expectations from this Govt or PDP-BJP leading to their isolation, there is a complete mistrust among the people.
Among others who addressed the meeting included Mohd Anwar Bhat, district presidents, contesting candidates, block presidents and others.
