Jammu, June 2: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti today sought support of the people to change the prevailing “inefficient and corrupt” system in the state. She said that PDP was committed to establish a transparent and accountable system to provide all comforts to people.
Addressing series of public meetings here she said that in 2002 priority of the party was to restore peace in the State. “By establishing peace and by implementing pro-peace and reconciliatory policies, PDP has proved its capability”, she said, adding, “This time our emphasis is on changing the system with the support of the people”.
“PDP wants to establish a system where every citizen would get equal opportunities of upliftment and development,” she said.
Mehbooba regretted that people of the state are facing immense problems. “In the scorching heat, people of Jammu have been facing hardship due to total breakdown of power system”, she said and mentioned even in Kashmir there was total shutdown of power for four days.
Pointing towards problems of the educated unemployed youth of the State, she strongly demanded that recruitment process should be streamlined and there should be direct recruitment on government jobs. “There is no need of appointing youth on contractual basis against over one lakh vacant posts in various government departments” she said and demanded that all the contractual employees should be regularized.
Reminding the gathering that process of contractual appointment was started in the year 2002 in a particular context because the Dr Farooq Abdullah led National Conference regime had singed MoU with the then Central government and imposed blanket ban on the regular recruitment. “Now the system has changed and the government should start the process to straight way recruit the unemployed youth as regular employ,” she said.
She said that present headed by Omar Abdullah has crossed all limits of corruption. “While as in other parts of the country a debate is going on how to eradicate the menace of corruption but in Jammu and Kashmir government itself brazenly taking steps to weaken the anti-graft bodies.”
She said that honest officers are sidelined while as plum positions have been given to the corrupt officers.
