Omar talking alliance out of insecurity: Mehbooba
Jammu, Dec 17: Asserting that the political fortune of National Conference has reached to a stage where it is “hesitant to face the people on its own,” the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti Monday said that Omar Abdullah’s talk on alliance with Congress was the “outcome of frustration and insecurity” his party is facing in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The ruling National Conference has lately realized that it is incompetent to contest the upcoming general elections in the State on its own and as such the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is eagerly seeking an alliance with Congress,” Mehbooba said, addressing the party’s Working Committee meeting here.
She said the recently concluded elections to four seats of Legislative Council have “given enough indication to National Conference leadership that it has lost the ground and the capability of winning any election without help entering into alliance.”
“The ministers of ruling alliance are involved in corruption and land grab cases but they are watching each other to save their skin,” Mehbooba said. “NC has been sacrificing the interest of the State and its people for its own vested interest.”
She alleged that the state government is misusing the Public Safety Act (PSA). “This government is using this law as a weapon to silence its adversaries and opponents,” she claimed.
Speaking on the occasion, PDP Patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed said the PDP through its vision and credibility has “earned confidence” of the people of Jammu and Kashmir in a short time.
“People have realized that only PDP has the vision and conviction to solve their problems,” he said, adding, “It is the PDP which has given an alternate to the people of the State where NC was once having the free-for-all situation.”
Terming PDP as the “party of future” in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the party has “emerged as the real voice of the people of State.”
