Poonch, Rajouri, Chenab Valley neglected: Mehbooba
Kotranka (Rajouri), Dec 13: Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti said the areas like Poonch, Rajouri and the Chenab Valley have been kept at the tail end of development process deliberately and used only as a vote bank for decades. “By removing the fear of gun, official repression and restoring dignity of people living there the PDP had brought them into the state’s main stream and simultaneously opened new avenues of development. Poonch and Rajouri,” she said addressing a rally here.
“A political party that takes bribe from its own workers for cabinet berths and for mandates for MLA’s and MLC’s can never be trusted with any authority to enforce discipline among the administration that it heads,” she claimed.
“While it had gifted ten most feasible power projects to the NHPC just for their lust it was now for the people of the state to gear up for correcting the wrongs done to them. Handing over of state’s financial management to the Reserve Bank of India and snatching it from the J&K Bank was a severe blow to the financial autonomy of the state and if the NC remained unchecked nothing would remain in our hands,” she added.
Speaking on the occasion, senior party leader and former Finance Minister Tariq Hamid Qarra said that the state was unsafe in the hands of Omar Abdullah.
Speaking on the occasion, MLA Darhal Choudhary Zulfikar said that during the last three years the present regime has done nothing for the welfare of the people.
