Feb 26: Pradesh Congress Committee has asked the People’s Democratic Party to come clear on the formation of Government as the J&K State is passing through a very crucial phase of political uncertainty.

The people in all the three regions feel apprehensive and highly concerned about the fate of the State and their future. The continuous silence maintained by the PDP is nothing, but a strategy to hoodwink the people again, which is fraught with dangerous consequences for it (PDP), he added.
The PCC chief sought clarification from the PDP over the silence maintained by it. He said the wrong policies of PDP has created political uncertainty in the State, which is not only dangerous for the State, but for the future of the people as well.
Describing the present prevailing chaos in the State as a major gift of PDP to people, PCC chief said that PDP has betrayed and has let down the people in every respect.
Accusing PDP for playing with emotions of people on account of agenda of alliance, and good governance, Mir asked the PDP to let the people know about the agenda of alliance, which was actually a power sharing formula between PDP and BJP, but when it did not materialized, the PDP started playing political drama to save its sinking boat. Urging party cadre to be ready for the challenges ahead, PCC chief emphasized the fact that Congress Party is strong enough to meet the challenges.
Describing Congress Party as an instrument of service to the people, PCC chief urged Congress Party workers and leaders to reach out to the people and work tirelessly for mitigating their sufferings.
