PDP an aberration on JK’s political arena: Rana

Publish Date: Dec 12 2012 12:00PM

Kathua, Dec 11: Chief Minister’s Political Advisor, Devender Singh Rana, on Tuesday said the Legislative Council elections have exploded the political myth called PDP and have proved that party was an aberration on the political arena of Jammu and Kashmir.
 Addressing a rally here Rana said, “Despite facing humiliating defeat in the LC polls in south Kashmir particularly Mufti’s own constituency Anantnag and Mehbooba’s constituency Wachi PDP is claiming that it has emerged as a political alternative knowing fully that they have been rejected and their politics has been buried by the electorate.”
 Rana said it is surprising that those who could not hold on to their bastion and who have been defeated miserably across the state claim about making inroads in Jammu province. “They even lost in their two assembly segments in Poonch and Rajouri i.e Mendhar and Darhal,” he added.
 Rana said the coalition’s win in the present elections is the victory of a principled politics based on ideological strength, huge committed cadre base under the visionary leadership of Omar Abdullah, unparallel era of development, a new chapter in transparency, accountability in governance, a stead fast approach on all political issues pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir and its people and above all politics of secularism and communal harmony.
 He said after having failed to divide the people on the basis of caste, religion, region, sect now the Muftis are making a desperate attempt to create fissures among the bureaucracy and politicize it by making baseless statements, little realizing that the JK bureaucracy and the JK Police have worked under the most tiring difficult circumstances with great amount of transparency, integrity, valour, efficiency and have remained largely apolitical barring a few glaring instances of politicization of bureaucracy between 2002 to 2005 due to the inept and inexperienced handling of the political leadership of the time for personal petty gains, the scars of which are seen even today.
