RS Pura (Jammu), Feb 19: Reiterating his party’s demand to arm the State Accountability Commission (SAC) with independent investigating agency, PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed today regretted that the present dispensation headed by National Conference has adopted lackluster approach on tackling corruption.
Addressing a party convention at Simbal here, Sayeed said; “Without its own independent investigating agency SAC has to depend on other organizations for investigation of graft cases and there is every chance of political interference in such circumstances.” He said the corruption cases cannot be investigated independently without arming SAC with its own investigation agency.
Observing that corruption, during the last three years, has sneaked into every part of the system, PDP patron said graft is rampant in the state from bottom to top and it is result of the rampant corruption that credibility of those who are at the helm of affairs has also come under cloud. “Those at the helm of the affairs have lost moral authority to speak about corruption due to their own alleged involvement in such practices,” he said.
Calling upon party workers to spread message of PDP in every nook and corner of the state, he said that after emerging as the biggest political force in Kashmir Valley next target of his party was to provide a secular alternative to the people of Jammu region. “We have been receiving overwhelming response of the people of Jammu region”, he said and assured the gathering that regional aspirations of all regions and sub-regions would be fulfilled by the PDP.
Pointing towards the problems of 1947 refugees Poonch and Muzaffarabad, Sayeed assured the gathering that his party, in any higher level discussion to be held in future for solution of Kashmir, would take up the issue of these refugees. “It is not the issue of monitory benefit but it is a question of the dignity of these refugees”, he said.
Speaking on the occasion, former Deputy Chief Minister Muzaffar Hussain Beig reminded the gathering that PDP led regime had set an example of good governance but the present government has reversed the whole process. He regretted that the Chief Minister of the state has no time to solve basic problems of the people. “Even during assembly sessions when legislators discuss issues related to public importance chief minister is usually busy fiddling with his mobile”, he said and added that it was unfortunate the Chief Minister of such a sensitive state was so casual towards basic problems of the people.
Calling upon the resident of Jammu to come forward to join PDP, he said that aim of PDP party is to change the system to provide justice and equality to all sections of the society.
Former Rajya Sabha member T S Bajwa, Hussain Ali Wafa, Bhushan Dogra and others also spoke on the occasion.
