Coalition not addressing real issues: Mufti

Jammu, Nov 8: Expressing surprise over the decision of the state government to conduct elections to the four seats of Legislative Council (LC) from the quota of Panchayats, PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed Thursday said the decision reflects “myopic vision” of the coalition regime.
 Addressing a function to welcome political activists from Basohli area who joined PDP under the leadership of Rangil Singh, Sarpanch from Mahanpur, Sayeed said at a time when Panchayat members seeking real empowerment, the government has announced elections for the LC seats. “Electing LC members from the quota of Panchayats is not the real issue but the main issue is delegation of powers to the Panchayats to set up a vibrant Panchayati Raj system in the State”, he said and regretted that the government has brazenly eroded sanctity of all democratic institutions in State.
 Taking a dig at the government, Sayeed expressed surprise that elections to constitute Block Development Councils (BDCs), which was the constitutional obligation to set up a three tier Panchayat Raj system, were deferred without any reason but the government was in a hurry to elect LC members from the quota of Panchayats. “It seems that entire process of holding elections of the Panchayats was planned only to get four seats of LC and the government has no intention to decentralize powers at grassroots level as per the spirit of Panchayati Raj system”, he said, adding, “the government has sacrificed whole system and betrayed the people just for some seats of Legislative Council”
