JAMMU: Patron of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said that system of governance is completely collapsed in J&K and the present regime has brazenly indulged into deceitful tactics by ignoring real issue of fair governance.
Addressing a function to welcome Abdul Qayoom Khan, IFS, ex-Chief Conservator of Forest, who is resident of Rajbagh Srinagar, Mufti regretted that during the last five and half year the issue of governance has been pushed to the backburner and those who are at the helm of the affairs have been shamelessly indulged into rampant corruption, nepotism and their misdeeds have badly shaken peoples faith in the system.
The present regime has nothing to show as its achievement of five and half year tenure, he observed and added the legalization corruption and subverting democratic institutions are only noticeable achievements of this government.
Lambasting National Conference led coalition regime for abusing the state apparatus to stifle voice of the people, Mufti said that prevailing chaos and anarchist situation in Jammu and Kashmir is result of the oppressive means being adopted by the present dispensation.
Mufti said that the system of governance has completely been collapsed in the State but the ruling elites are not ready to accept the ground realities. The present government has become synonymous with corruption and scams, he said and during the last five and half years this regime has caused incalculable damage to the democratic institutions in J&K. He especially mentioned that postponing civic bodies elections is an example how this regime has snatched democratic rights from the people. Sanctity of all democratic institutions has been eroded by this regime during the last five and half years, he said and observed that dictatorial attitude of present regime has again shattered peoples faith. PDP patron, however, asserted that his party would continue to work for strengthening democratic institutions in the State.
