PDP women activists stage anti-govt protest
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Oct 14: Stepping up its attack against the ruling National Conference, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women wing on Friday took out a protest march here. Protesters alleged that people had lost faith in the present dispensation.
PDP women activists assembled near Dogra Chowk and marched through various markets of the city before they were stopped by the police at Vivekanand Chowk.
Protestors were carrying effigies of state government and ruling National Conference which were garlanded with fake notes symbolizing the alleged “rampant corruption and mis-governance.”
Addressing protestors, senior PDP leader Vijay Dogra said the present dispensation has “lost faith” of the people as this regime has failed to give justice to the common masses.
He said that the National Conference-led regime has crossed all limits of “corruption” and common masses were bearing its brunt. “One and only noticeable achievement of the present dispensation is legalizing corruption. During the last three years, present regime has crossed all limits of corruption,” the leader remarked.
While referring to the alleged custodial death of the National Conference (NC) worker Haji Yosuf, she said, “It has exposed what has allegedly been going in this government as well as in the ruling party.”
The leader regretted that instead of properly investigating the matter to give justice to the bereaved family the Government has “hushed up the case.”
