Surinsar, Apr 8: The Political Advisor to the Chief Minister Devender Singh Rana said that PDP and its leadership are the saboteurs of peace for petty political gains unmindful of the ramification of their deeds.
He said it is sad that in a state like Jammu and Kashmir where political parties must rise above politics and work together for the peace and stability PDP has always indulged in political gimmickry for personal political ends sacrificing the interest of the state and its people.
Rana who was addressing a public meeting at Surinsar in Nagrota assembly constituency , said that 1984-the murder of democracy, 1989-the sending of Jagmohan as Governor, the bloodshed and destruction between 1990 to 1996 and 2008 the Amarnath row are stigmas on the political scape of Jammu and Kashmir which have all been orchestrated by the PDP leadership in one way or the other leading to destabilization of peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said corruption is a menace which has to be fought and Omar Abdullah led Coalition Government has taken radical steps to create functional autonomous institutional mechanism to check that menace rather than mere sloganeering.
“PDP leadership is in a habit of leveling unsubstantiated, unfounded, vague charges of corruption in the last four years against the present Government which is a sad commentary on their mind set. If it (PDP) has any substantial proof they must approach the autonomous institutions setup by the present Government and prove their charges rather than just giving vent to their frustration by mere hollow sloganeering and leveling motivated charges, he said.
The Political Advisor said that the Omar Abdullah led Coalition Government has unleashed an era of unparallel and unprecedented development and has taken some important steps to tackle the issue of unemployment as also to address the issue of unauthorized, fake, adhoc and daily wagers appointments done by the PDP led Government between 2002 to 2005.
Rana said the young men and women who are on the streets clamouring for justice today are the outcrop of plethora of fake/ unlawful appointments done between 2002 to 2005 by the PDP Government to hoodwink the gullible youth of the state. He said, the present Government has taken upon itself the challenge to resolve their issues and not let them suffer because of the wrong doings of the PDP Government and so despite financial constraints is trying to find via-media to dispense justice to them.
Speaking on the occasion, National Conference Provincial President, Rattan Lal Gupta asked the party rank and file and the National Conference delegates to strengthen the party at grass roots and play active role in development process.
He said during the last three year of the Coalition Government under the leadership of Omar Abdullah has kick started many developmental projects and laid out many developmental plans to be carried out in the next coming years. He called upon the people to come forward and join hands together in the State Government’s endeavor under the leadership of Omar Abdullah.
