Srinagar people will defeat NC: PC
Junaid Mattuu pulls up Govt on ‘dangerous’ skewed bridge
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 17: The Peoples Conference(PC) led By Sajad Gani Lone on Wednesday said the people of Srinagar would give a crushing defeat to the ruling National Conference in the coming elections.
The Peoples Conference spokesperson, Junaid Azim Mattu in a statement said: “The people of Srinagar, after decades of slavery and punishment meted out to them, were ready to give National Conference a crushing defeat in the coming elections.”
“NC has harassed traders in Srinagar, institutionalized and authorized corruption in the matters of basic governance and has terrorized the people of Srinagar either overtly through draconian policing or covertly through obstructionist building laws and an archaic, ridiculous Master Plan that has broken the backs of businessmen,” Mattu said.
Expressing anguish at the “snail-paced” development of Srinagar, Mattu said: “One fine day, after this State has been rid of the scourge of NC’s oppression, the Srinagarites will hark for investigations into the disproportionate and ill-gotten wealth of NC’s MLAs from Srinagar, who have built colossal empires from nothing in the last two decades without any identifiable sources of income.”
“Had NC’s MLAs from Srinagar been half as passionate about development as they have been about building their palaces and empires, Srinagar wouldn’t be in this dire mess today. However, given a free hand to loot, plunder and squander government money; these MLAs work in an accountability-free time-warp, with blessings of immunity from the highest echelons of their party,” he added.
Mattu rued the “fact that there is not a single constituency in Srinagar which has seen equitable and visible development.”
“Every Srinagar constituency tells the same story – while basic governance is an out-of-reach dream for the overwhelming majority of the constituents, the government has bent its back backwards to dole out favors to NC’s henchmen and workers,” he added.
“For the MLAs of NC, the only people deserving enough to witness development are its own workers. The rest of the constituents are seen as unnecessary, invisible entities who are of little consequence during elections. This is primarily possible due to election boycotts in Srinagar, as MLAs who work solely for their own workers and henchmen, manage to get elected with three thousand odd votes in constituencies that have near about a hundred thousand registered votes,” he added.
“Now,” he said, “Enough is enough and the people of Srinagar will not allow NC to foist incompetent, thoroughly corrupt and anti-people MLAs on them.” “The movement for change will witness Srinagarites empower themselves and the futures of their children.”
“The party ensures that it goes against the grain of public opinion and common sense. A small yet telling example of this is the skewed bridge -NC will commission the dangerous skewed bridge despite an overwhelming majority of Srinagarites opposed to the lunatic project. Public concerns and opinions have never mattered to NC,” he added.
The PC spokesperson said that Srinagar needs good governance, educated and honest leaders who are committed to change and development. “The time of political monopoly is over and National Conference should now start preparing for the political consequences of decades of corruption, misrule and political arrogance in Srinagar,” he added.
