GK NEWS NETWORK
Kupwara, Nov 25: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday alleged that PDP leadership has unleashed a “false propaganda” against the coalition government to overcome its “frustration.”
Omar said that the friendly ties between Congress and National Conference have “frustrated” the PDP leadership. “Holistic progress that has been achieved on both peace and development fronts by the coalition government has un-nerved the PDP, as such, this party leadership has unleashed a propaganda to survive. They are trying their best to damage NC-Congress bond but have failed,” Omar said.
“I have told you that for power sake they can go to any extent, circulate hatred, wage apart the society, use even people’s miseries and even gun culture simultaneously to put the state on fire”, he said adding that people have witnessed these attempts and this characteristics of PDP and its leadership time and again,” Omar said. “They cannot astray and fool people again and again,” he added.
“They (PDP leadership) are presently shedding crocodile tears to pretend that they have concern for Panchayats, when actually they opposed tooth and nail holding of Panchayat elections in the State raising different speculations and advocating various reasons”, he said and questioned how PDP could be friend of Panchs and Sarpanchs when it (PDP) was against their very existence and tried its best to derail the Panchayat election process?
Addressing gatherings of Panchayat members at Kupwara, Handwara and Langate in north Kashmir, Omar told Panchs and Sarpanchs to beware of the politicking of PDP leadership in the name of Panchayats.
“NC-Congress coalition has rejuvenated Panchayat Raj in the State after over 30 years. We have transferred powers and funds to you. You are to us just like children to parents. Our desire is to develop you and ensure your sustainable growth and strength. Empowerment of Panchayats is our policy and commitment”, he said adding that a powerful and viable Panchayat Raj is only assured under NC-Congress coalition as both parties share the principle of empowerment of grass root democratic institutions.
Omar said those (PDP leadership) who talk of democracy today damaged the institutions during their tenure and made them non-functional. “Those (PDP leadership) who talk of RTI Act now, did not allow J&K State Information Commission to be created during their time. They made Accountability Commission dysfunctional and torpedoed every institution functioning in the State for bringing in transparency in government functioning”, he added.
Omar said that his government took path breaking measures to make transparency rule the roost, bring the government functioning under full public scan, empowered people to receive public services in a time bound manner , authorized common man to ask questions to administration on every issue besides bringing Chief Minister and Ministers under the preview of Accountability Commission.
Omar said that his government constituted State Information Commission, reconstituted Accountability Commission, implemented Public service Guarantee Act, established Panchayat Raj system, made e-tendering and e-procurement compulsory for government departments, and made 3rd party monitoring of projects permanent feature for transparency. “They (PDP leadership) cannot wipe out these historic initiatives of good governance implemented by the coalition government, by unleashing false and baseless propaganda against NC-Congress government”, he said adding that the performance of the coalition is glaring and cannot be eclipsed by the falsehood propagated by PDP against the NC-Congress government.
“This party’s (PDP) report card is so dim and dark and full of anti-people commissions and omissions, that they feel embarrassed when look towards it as such indulge in blame game and false propaganda”, he said and asked Panchs and Sarpanchs to vote enemas in favour of NC-Congress joint candidates to help flourish Panchayat Raj in the State and empowerment of Panchs and Sarpanchs.
On the empowerment of women, the Chief Minister said that coalition government provided quota to women in Panchayati institutions and paved way there empowerment. He said representation of women in these institutions would help involve women in the welfare of the state particularly those of women. He said coalition government is keen to the upliftment of women along with men and various measures taken in this regard.
