Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Nov 30: Apni Party General Secretary Vikram Malhotra today accused National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party for the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir which has resulted in loss of hundreds of innocent lives.
In a statement to the press, Malhotra said that J&K is passing through a difficult situation which has emerged because of two regional political parties who have ruled the erstwhile State.
“They are trying to defame other political parties knowing that they were part and parcel of the previous Govts whenever violence takes place in Kashmir. Their leaders never speak about their roles when they were in power,” he said.
Questioning the credibility of such political parties, he said that they are again in the field to mislead the innocent people with emotional slogans ahead of Assembly polls in J&K.
“People are well aware about their conspiracies. The developmental situation of J&K is still the same and the majority of the remote areas are without road connectivity, worse health services, poor clean drinking water and electricity supply. Yet these political parties will avoid speaking about the development which they had promised but miserably failed,” he said.
Vikram Malhotra alleged that these two political parties still want to exploit people with the emotional slogans by defaming others even as they had worked with BJP in the past too. “Both the political parties are in the ground again to create division of votes to benefit BJP on the direction of their masters. They are hand in glove with BJP that is why these political parties held public rallies in Chenab Valley and other districts of Jammu Region to create division of votes to benefit BJP,” he said and cautioned the people against such political parties and their leaders who are again trying to create a wedge among the regions with their venomous political agenda.
“Apni Party is against them because of their divisive agenda and political greed to gain power. However, we believe in the unity of people and the two regions. We believe in development of every nook and corner of J&K without discrimination,” he said and added that if Apni Party comes to power, it will make all out efforts for development, employment, and empowerment of all section of society without discrimination.
