JAMMU, Jan 3: Former Minister and senior leader Abdul Gani Vakil today said that present coalition Government has proved itself as a sister concern of National Conference in respect of shielding and encouraging corruption. Both the parties seem to have been in an undeclared and secret pact to protect each other from any action of law, he added.
In a statement, Vakil said that if PDP-BJP Government should not waste time in ordering a time bound probe in purchase of substandard pipes, 80 per cent non existent SSA school buildings as well as other infamous embezzlements and scams reported during tenure of previous regime.
He lambasted Government for rendering Accountability Commission defunct and delaying the inquiries into corruption allegation pending against Ministers, Ex-Minister and Legislators.
Vakil blamed successive Governments particularly headed by NC for adopting wrong policies and thereby pushing people into deep trouble and agony. He said that no one can deny this fact that unending corruption, favoritism, nepotism and mounting unemployment are the main reasons responsible for worsening the peaceful atmosphere of the State because these issues were of less importance for previous regimes as same remained unaddressed till date.
Commenting on recent sacking of employees, Vakil said that nothing is going to change by such orders until pending corruption cases of big sharks biting dust since decades in various anti graft agencies or Accountability Commission are taken to logical end.
He said that the present Government should sincerely concentrate on eradicating corruption at higher level and shun the policy of protecting and shielding political persons for resorting to corrupt practices.
Blaming both NC and PDP for exploiting, befooling and cheating innocent masses of Jammu and Kashmir, Vakil reiterated that both these parties forgot and drifted from their core ideologies either for sake of power or winning some seats.
He appealed to every individual not to become victims of autonomy and self rule politics. He said that the moment NC or PDP gain power, they will forget and relegate all issues particularly autonomy or self rule for grabbing power.
