NC takes exception to Baig’s utterances
‘State has shown tremendous increase in tax collection, generating own resources’
Jammu, Apr 12: Ruling National Conference on Thursday castigated the senior PDP leader Muzaffar Hussain Baig for what it called issuing a “misleading” statement on the recently tabled CAG report in the house.
In a statement the provincial spokesman of NC (Jammu) and MLA Sajad Ahmed Kichloo said, “National Conference led coalition government has steered the state out of the financial mess created by the PDP.”
Referring to the statement of Muzaffar Hussain Baig, Kichloo said that the utterances were completely “far from the facts” and “concocted figures” were projected by him to justify his claims, which only speaks about the “frustration the PDP leadership is undergoing due to the new dimension to development and prosperity in the state.”
“The dynamic and visionary leadership of Omar Abdullah has been hailed at state, national and international level. Several historic decisions and initiatives have been taken during the last three years, which are aimed at changing the destiny of the people in the state and given a new meaning to the development, transparency and accountability,” he added.
The state was under the grip of liabilities created by the PDP regime, he alleged.
“Today the overdraft with Jammu and Kashmir Bank stands zero while the state has earned considerable interests amount on its money under the new arrangements with the RBI. The central government was kind to allocate highest ever annual plan to the state worth Rs 6600 crore. This year too the state is expecting a hike in the annual plan allocation for which the state government and the officers associated with the process have to be appreciated.”
He said that the state has shown tremendous increase in the tax collection and generating own resources over the last three years, which itself speaks about the sincerity and dedication the government was working with. “The state is progressing towards the economic self reliance but this fact does not seems to go well with the opposition parties, who are out to mislead people only for their own vested interests,” he added.
