Reiterating Congress Party’s resolve to defeat the political exploitation, corruption and favoritism in the state, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President and the party candidate G.A. Mir has said that people of J&K have suffered because of the betrayal and misleading politics on the part of PDP, BJP and others.
Mir also said that people of Anantnag have voted against the opportunist politics in first phase and appealed to people of Kulgam, Shopian and Pulwama to follow suit.
Addressing various public meetings at Manzgam, Nadimarg andKulgam in Kulgamdsistrict today, G.A. Mir urged people to support Congress Party in its endeavor to put an end to the emotional blackmailing and political exploitation on the part of PDP and other opportunist parties, which have equally betrayed people, from time to time, for electoral gains.
JKPCC President was accompanied by ShahnawazChowdhary, Surinder Singh Channi, InduPawar, UdhayChibb, Anayatullah Rather and others.
He said J&K was passing through a crucial phase due to the surrender of the PDP before BJP after securing votes from people especially in south Kashmir on the promise of keeping the BJP away.
“I want to remind you about the promises made to you by the PDP during 2014 Assembly election. They misled you on sensitive issue of Article 370, pledged to keep BJP out of power and bring back the power projects, besides the promises of repealing AFSPA and what not. What happened after the elections is known to everybody,” Mir said.
“I am confident that people would come out in Phase II and Phase IIIrd in large numbers and cast their vote to ensure victory of Congress Party. Congress party alone stands guarantee to integrity, special status of the state and dignity of people in all the three regions”, Mir said.
Mir said South Kashmir has bled enough due to the wrong policies of PDP and its old friend BJP.
“There was a huge disillusionment among the people because of violence and bloodshed. People need to understand that the PDP, which was responsible for the damages is again trying to woo the voters by running paper horses only,” Mir said. “The fact of the matter is that the PDP cannot do anything. This party which has sacrificed its core agenda for power has again started misleading people over sensitive issues like safeguarding special status of the J&K, which is beyond its reach”.
He said Congress Party alone can safeguard special status of the state and will do everything to defeat the communal agenda of BJP RSS, besides exploitative politics of other political parties in J&K.
