NC Corrupt from Top to Bottom: PDP

JAMMU: Rampant corruption, bungling in funds, non-availability of essential commodities like drinking water, electricity and ration are the noticeable achievements of this regime, stated PDP leaders while addressing a massive crowd of party workers, which later turned into a protest rally against failure of the Omar Abdullah led regime.

Characterizing Omar Abdullah led government as gang of looters, which has openly been looting the state since January 2009, PDP today urged the party workers to launch a conclusive battle against this “worst ever dishonest and anti-people administration the state has witnessed so far”.

PDP leaders added that government had failed to solve basic problems of the masses due to its “indifferent and casual” approach towards woes of the people and the state has been gripped with unprecedented crises due to non-availability of ration in the government runs depots, scarcity of drinking water in most parts of Jammu region coupled with the unscheduled power curtailments.

Exhorting the workers to mobilize public opinion against this “anti-people” regime, PDP leaders said that during the last nearly five years, “this government stands exposed as it has reneged on all promises made with the people during campaign for the 2008 assembly elections”.

“The government seems to be more concerned about issuing press statements and conducting photo sessions to hoodwink the common masses”, they said, adding, “Failure of the State Government can be gauged from the fact that farmers, employees, technocrats, unemployed educated youth, students have been agitating in one way or other but the ruling elites seems to be unconcerned towards growing unrest among different sections of the society”. They said “the state government is involved in corruption from top to bottom”.

Coming down heavily on State Government for adopting casual approach towards strengthening the institutions to curb corruption, they said that except promises nothing has been done.

Later the gathering turned into a protest rally which passed through different parts of the city before culminating near Asia Crossing.
