NC has made mockery of governance: Mehbooba


Jammu Nov 19: President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti Monday said the party has “introduced some much-needed correctives into the political system of J&K.”
 Addressing public meetings in Khour Gali in Panchari area of Reasi and Krimichi in Udhampur district, Mehbooba said, “This not only ended single party monopoly on power but promoted contest and competition in the government formation which is the essence of democracy.”
 Mehbooba said for nearly four decades “National Conference enjoyed unchallenged power which had turned it into an arrogant and thoroughly corrupt agent of exploitation.” “All regions of the state were adversely affected by its insensitive and inefficient rule but in absence of a credible alternative the party got away with its sins. The NC would make a mockery of governance,” Mehbooba said.
 The PDP president said that her party “with its increasing appeal in all regions and a shining record of performance as leading partner in the previous coalition with Congress had established itself as the single and best alternative to change the present corrupt and inefficient system of governance.”
 She said NC was for the first time in the past 60 years “facing a challenge to their unbridled power in the form of PDP and for the first time their doublespeak, mis-governance and corruption was getting exposed.”
 She said having enjoyed absolute power for almost four decades, “NC took people for granted, looted the state of its resources and indulged in worst kind of corruption.”
 Mehbooba said the party which came to power on the plank of development, jobs to 8th class pass, free electricity to poor, 50 rupee reduction in the prices of cooking gas has done “everything contrary to those promises.”
 “On one hand NC has been pleading lack of resources for paying wages to daily wagers, casual laborers in different departments, enhancing wages of SPOs, or continuation of NYC but on the other the government has been making backdoor appointments in large numbers,” she alleged. She said “more than 300 people have been reemployed on very highly paid posts by the present government after their retirement, thus paying them salary in lacs every month.”
