Voted to power, we’ll re-negotiate water agreements: Mufti
Doda, May 23: Reiterating the resolve of his party to make Jammu and Kashmir economically self-reliant, patron of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mufti Muhammad Sayeed today said that PDP would re-negotiate the ‘discriminatory’ water agreements if it assumes power again.
Addressing a public meeting at Doda today, Sayeed reiterated demand of his party to re-negotiate the ‘discriminatory’ water agreements signed by successive National Conference regimes from time to time by “brazenly bartering natural resources of the State.”
“It is our pledge that we will continue our struggle to get these discriminatory agreements revoked to make Jammu and Kashmir economically self-reliant”, he said while highlighting Self Rule document of the party. “Had successive NC regime not surrendered our natural resources in such a reckless manner for enjoying power, the State would have been economically self-reliant”, he added.
“In our Self Rule document, we have promised to re-negotiate the discriminatory water agreements”, he said, adding, “whenever any talks would be held in future to address internal dimension of the problem of Jammu and Kashmir, PDP would vociferously take up the issue of re-negotiating discriminatory water agreements”.
