NC leaders using people’s mandate to seek employment: Karra

BUDGAM: Senior PDP leader and candidate for Srinagar-Budgam constituency Tariq Hameed Karra today accused National Conference leaders of using politics as an employment avenue instead of a means to serve the public.

Addressing a series of public meetings in district Budgam, Mr Karra said that NC patron Dr Farooq Abdullah’s latest statement wherein he has counseled his son Omar Abdullah to join Rahul Gandhi’s cabinet if UPA comes to power at the Centre, should prove an eye-opener for the people of Jammu and Kashmir that how NC leaders are using the people’s mandate to seek employment for the family both at the centre and within the state.

He said while the dismal performance of Dr Farooq Abdullah as a member Parliament is no secret, his latest revealing remarks are not only contemptuous but also affronting for the gullible people who might have voted for him. “While lakhs of highly educated unemployed youth in the State are looking towards their political representatives to create job avenues for them, Dr Farooq Abdullah seems to be more concerned about looking for job avenues for himself and his son at the cost of the people’s mandate,” Karra said.

He said sensing defeat for NC in the upcoming political battles, Dr Abdullah has already started exploring alternative job avenues for himself and his son. “I am sure that the emancipated people of Kashmir won’t now get carried away by the emotive and propagandist rhetoric of NC leaders and would look for alternative representatives who can serve them better,” he said.
