He behaves like leader of opposition: Kamaal
Srinagar, Apr 22: Accusing the State Congress president Prof Saifuddin Soz of trying to destabilize the coalition government led by Omar Abdullah, the firebrand National Conference leader Dr Mustafa Kamaal Sunday said that he (Soz) is behaving like the leader of opposition and his “veiled threats” to NC-led government are against the “interests of entire country.”
Reacting to the statement of Soz that National Conference was creating hurdles in empowerment of Panchayats, Kamaal said going by the utterances of Soz, it seems as if he is the leader of the principal opposition party and his behavior is against the coalition dharma.
“It does not behoove the leader of Coalition Coordination Committee (CCC) to speak publicly against the ally and it tantamount to destabilizing coalition government,” he said, adding that Soz’s announcement of launching movement for empowerment of Panchayats is “not only against the interests of coalition government and people Jammu and Kashmir, but detrimental to the interests of entire country.”
Terming coalition of NC-Congress as an uneasy alliance, Kamaal said, “Soz should have raised the issue of empowerment of Panchayats in the Coordination Committee. Why he did not got the issue raised in last Legislative Assembly session, if he is so much sincere about the subject.”
“The utterances also reflect his unhappiness over the functioning of coalition government,” he added.
The NC leader said that incorporating of 73rd amendment in State Constitution was not something urgent and Soz should have waited for next Assembly session.
“There is no need of bringing ordinance for amending Panchayati Raj Act at this juncture,” he added.
