PDP holds convention in Old City
Srinagar, July 10: General Secretary of PDP, Muhammad Dilawar Mir has accused the National Conference of not fulfilling its promises and ignoring Srinagar city.
Addressing a party convention at Babademb here in Old City, Mir said, “Omar Abdullah led government has betrayed people and has failed on all the fronts.”
“People of Srinagar want to ask the Chief Minister what happened to his promises about removing electric meters, providing one job in every house hold and about development of Srinagar city,” Mir said. “Instead of removing electric meters the government has increased the power tariff without any notice to consumers, prices of essential commodities have sky rocketed. Promise of providing jobs to unemployed has remained confined to papers only.”
Mir said that present regime has “failed to do anything for the people” and has pushed them towards the wall.
Referring to last year’s unrest, Mir said, “Government forces in order to establish its writ killed more than 100 youth, registered FIRs against more than 5000 youth, jeopardizing their careers, while hundreds of youth booked under PSA are languishing in various jails.” He alleged that funds earmarked for the development of Srinagar district have been diverted to other districts.
The convention in the Old City was organized by Mudassir Ali.
