Describing the remarks of Power Minister Piyush Goyal regarding J&K government’s demand for return of power projects as a setback to the state, State Congress President Ghulam Ahmed Mir today said that it was the result of politics of exploitation and treachery played by PDP.
“Why did your promise something which you had already given-up during secret understanding with BJP? You deceived people of Jammu and Kashmir,” said Mir while addressing a largely attended public meeting at Kund (Qazigund) in District Kulgam today. Denouncing PDP for misleading the people on various issues, PCC Chief said that the refusal by Union Power Minister is a real set back, it has exposed political drama being staged by PDP with regard to return of power projects to the state.
He said that it has become a habit on the part of PDP to mislead and betray people on certain issues like revocation of AFSPA, return of power projects and other issues concerning state. Seeking explanation from PDP over the issue, PCC Chief said that Minister’s statement was the result of blatant lies and political gimmicks of coalition government led by PDP and indicative of complete failure of coalition government. He said the tall claims with regard to overall development have all fallen flat.
Taking a dig at Chief Minister over the silence being maintained by her, PCC Chief said that in order to further political ambitions PDP leadership has surrendered the genuine demands and just rights to the BJP, what is Mehbooba Mufti doing in the CM’s Chair when her demands are being rejected one by one, where is the agenda of alliance on which PDP is playing a lot of politics aiming to mislead the people, for the sake of power, PCC Chief questioned.
Referring to the other issues, PCC chief said that coalition government has adopted an oblivious attitude towards the problems people are facing, as a result, the people in all the three regions have become victims of the misrule by PDP BJP Coalition. Addressing the gathering MLA Devsar Mohammed Amin Bhat told the gathering that Congress Party has never compromised on its principles, while having taken care of urges and aspiration of the people, Congress Party would continue to remain steadfast in serving the people to the best of its ability, he said.
