Omar’s statements are juvenile pranks: PDP

SRINAGAR: Terming Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s statements as juvenile pranks lacking tangible content and intellectual depth, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today said that instead of indulging in histrionics and rhetoric, Omar Sahab should focus on governance as the state’s hapless inhabitants are suffering immensely because of the total governance failure in Jammu and Kashmir.

“With four years of his tenure over, we challenge Omar Sahab to show one major developmental project pioneered, executed and accomplished by this government as was done by PDP-led government in three years in the shape of new universities, new institutions, new campuses of existing universities, fly-overs, roads, bridges, tourism development authorities, parks, beautification programmes and so on and so forth,” PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said in a statement issued here today

“Having terribly failed on every count, Omar Sahab would now do a great favor to the people if he can ensure at least some respectable power supply during the remaining two winters of his tenure,” she said and added that while people have lost all hopes with the present dispensation, but if its functionaries still have even a miniscule of sense of responsibility they should solely focus on ensuring proper electricity supply.  

Mehbooba said while the power crisis had set in with the arrival of the present government in 2009, it now seems to be going from bad to worst with people in every nook and corner of the state moaning over the deteriorating electricity supply. “As this government has failed to not only take some big developmental initiatives but even fulfill meager developmental needs of the people, we urge the functionaries of this regime for God sake at least arrange some decent power supply for the hapless people,” she said and added that it is for the first time since 2002 that power supply has worsened both in metered and unmetered areas to such an appalling extent.

Mehbooba said the distressed people of the state in general and Kashmir valley in particular are in for the worst times under the present regime with acute shortage of basic amenities including power and LPG multiplying their miseries. “We expect good sense to prevail on this government so that people can get some relief, sooner the better,” she said.
