National Conference on Thursday lashed out at the PDP-BJP Government and the Chief Minister for their "surrender" on the demand seeking the return of power projects to the State and said the "silence" of the Chief Minister in view of Union Minister R. K. Singh’s remarks speaks volumes about her "hypocrisy and sell-out to remain glued to power." 
 
In a statement issued from Party Head Office, ‘Nawa-e-Subha’ in Srinagar, National Conference State Spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu said the Union Minister had made it unambiguously clear that the demand for the return of the power projects made in the ‘Agenda of the Alliance’ was yet another lie that was propounded at that time to justify PDP’s Freudian bargain with the BJP to form a Government in the State for purely self-seeking intentions. 
 
“This is yet another instance where the Central Government has, without any pretence, absolved itself of any promises that were made in the ‘Agenda of the Alliance’ between the PDP and BJP. What makes this even more tragic is the silence of PDP and especially the Chief Minister”, the NC State Spokesperson, said in the statement. 
 
“It was none other than PDP Vice President Muzaffar Baigh who questioned the very existence of the ‘Agenda of the Alliance’ and such brazen abandonment of the document and the promises it enshrined by no less a figure of authoring than a Union Minister clearly exposed PDP and proves beyond any doubt that the party had no ideological or public-interest-driven agenda to cobble up an alliance with the BJP – something that was done for the singular purpose of first making Mufti Sahab and then Mehbooba Mufti the Chief Minister”, the NC State Spokesperson further added. 
 
He said the party demands an immediate and clear answer from the Chief Minister where she should either accept that she has fooled the people of the State or a rebuttal to the Union Minister for his remarks. 
 
“Mehbooba Ji should understand that she can’t have the cake and eat it too. She can’t sell out the interests of the State to remain glued to power while donning the persona of a rebel. These are glaring contradictions – contradictions which have wreaked havoc with the State and fuelled an unprecedented level of alienation and disenchantment. You made these promises to the youth of the State, even fought elections on these planks and now when your alliance partner-led Government in New Delhi has categorically abandoned all these promises, PDP has left the youth disillusioned not only with itself but also the system of governance as a whole," he said.
