PDP sacrificed power for people: Mehbooba
Bhalwal, Oct 18: Asserting that the previous coalition government, led by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, had changed the socio-economic scenario of the state, Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that attaining power was never the prime agenda of her party.
“We have sacrificed the power to uphold the aspiration and dignity of people”, she said while addressing a public meeting at Khanka Village here.
“Attaining power is not agenda of our party”, she said and added that both she and Mufti Muhammad Sayeed were very comfortable in Congress. “We left the Congress and formed PDP only to restore dignity and honour of the people of JK”, she recalled.
Launching a scathing attack on ruling National Conference she accused its leadership of compromising interest of people and state for the sake of power. “Unlike NC, PDP leadership has never compromised with its principles for the power”, she asserted and reminded the gathering that PDP had entered into a power sharing alliance with Congress in the year 2002 only after formulation of Common Minimum Programme (CMP)- an agenda to run the coalition.
It was Mufti Muhammad Sayeed led government which changed socio-economic scene of the state besides creating a sense of security among the common masses, she said and added that in its three year tenure biggest achievement of PDP was that it had earned credibility of the people through its conviction and commitment.
Reiterating resolve of her party to fulfill wishes of all sections of the society, Mehbooba said that her party has a vision to address aspirations of all regions and sub-regions of the state.
