Coalition not even a marriage of connivance: Naeem

SRINAGAR: Launching a scathing attack on the present  coalition government, Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP)Chief Spokesman Naeem Akhtar Monday accused the present coalition government of having  no Common Minimum Programme (CMP) and said that it appears more like a ‘live-in relationship than a marriage of connivance’.

Akhtar while participating in the debate over the address that Governor NN Vohra made at the inaugural session of the budge session stated that the government has used imminent personality and august institution of the governor to make false claims and wrong commitments.  “In 2012 a commitment was made than the lections of district and block council will be made this year (2012). Also it was stated by the governor at that time that urban local bodies elections will be held in April 2012. It was added further special grant assistance for Jammu and Ladakh will be a onetime grant but ironically this year also the same appears in the para 8 of the governor’s speech.”

Akhtar added further that this year governor’s address opened with the note about the creation of new administrative units in the state. Naeem stated that the government has nothing to show to the people of the state and that this year’s address should have been the account of last six years but the same was a routine clerical note.

“Coalitions are generally called as the marriages of cunningness and they have CMPs- on which they deliver in the unanimous way,” Akhtar said that this government is a unique one and that it has no CMP and it is a live-in relationship than even a marriage of cunningness.

PDP chief spokesman stated further that there is crises of confidence and credibility I the country because the parties make commitments to seek votes and they finally fail to deliver on ground. “NC’s manifesto quoted that restoration of autonomy in the state, the establishment of truth and reconciliation commission,  about the power houses of the state, creation of Chenab valley and Peer Panchal hill development council- all of them and much more , they have failed to deliver.”
