NC-Cong regime failed to carry forward peace agenda: Mehbooba


Mendhar, Nov 21: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti today said that National Conference-Congress government had failed to build on the foundation of good governance and development laid by previous government headed by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed.
 Addressing public meetings at Gambermughla and Mendhar Mehbooba said previous PDP led regime had laid a strong foundation for equitable development but the present regime has failed to carry forward the agenda of peace and development in the State. She said that good work both on political as well as development front done by the previous PDP-Congress regime has been reversed during the last four years rule of present NC-Congress government.
 “The political process started between Kashmir and Delhi and Delhi and Islamabad to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir issue has been put on back burner by the present regime”, she said, adding, “Trade and travel routes opened between the two sides like Srinagar –Muzaffarabad, Poonch-Rawalakote for the purpose of generating interaction and economic activity have become all most defunct during the last about four years.”.
 She said that the basic requirements like communication, banking facility etc are still missing and goods are exchanged as bartar system which does not have much scope. She emphasized on the need of providing all basic requirement to further boost the cross LoC trade.
 “Mughal road project which was taken up by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed despite great obstructions was to get completed by 2009, but 2012 too has ended but the road is still not open for general traffic”, she pointed out, adding, “Similarly BGBS University was build with the vision not only to provide educational opportunities to the youth of these far flung areas but also to set standards of excellence like the Aligarh Muslim University.”.
 Mehbooba regretted that the present regime instead of building on these initiatives of Mufti Muhammad Sayeed seems to be bent upon showing total disregard thus putting them in disarray.

Youth feel once again deceived by NC who had promised them jobs right from 8th pass” she said, adding “Allegations of corruption and favoritism in giving employment have further frustrated the youth”. She reminded the gathering that NC which had promised free power to poor , 50 rupees less on LPG gas and other such promises have totally done the reverse. “Power tariff has been increased many times, LPG gas has gone up and is scarcely available that too at a very high price”, she said.
 She added that the only achievement this regime boasts of was holding Panchayat elections, but unfortunately this institution too has been rendered useless.
 Mehbooba said that unlike past NC can no more take people for granted since people have accepted PDP as a better alternative. She assured the people that PDP was committed to the over all development of the State.
