SRINAGAR: Exuding confidence over the National Conferences mass support and wisdom of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, the working President National Conference and Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah Wednesday said that National Conference will form the new government in Jammu and Kashmir by all means.
He added that no government is possible in the State without the participation of National Conference. He said NC kept away from government formation in 2002 on its own decision otherwise it was in a position at that time too to form the government for being the majority party in the State Legislative Assembly.
In a statement Omar said: Day dreaming by PDP and BJPs 44+ drama will end up in oblivion, adding that the dreaming, however, is not a banned commodity. He said that PDP is spreading falsehood and baseless propaganda while BJP is staging drama to create illusion and confusion among the voters. He said people of Jammu and Kashmir are wiser enough to read between the lines and understand the designs of these parties to create artificial hype for misleading public. He said the so-called poll analysis and predictions have nothing do with ground reality and the reality is that the National Conference is going to win the elections comfortably and with majority.
Omar criticised the detractors of National Conference for circulating false propaganda against it and its government. By unleashing baseless misinformation campaign and covering the ground realities political parties like PDP want to belittle the huge achievements registered by National Conference led government in the State during the last over six years, he said and appealed to the people to remain cautious against the vested interests and stand united against their nefarious objectives.
Those who tell you that this government has not done anything, ask them who constructed over 18000 kilometres of new roads, 300 major bridges, hundreds of hospitals and health units, over a thousand schools, colleges, universities, technical institutions, ITIs and other educational institutions. Ask them who created hundreds of New Administrative Units particularly in backward and remote areas to enhance the reach of people to administration, ask them who empowered people by establishing Panchayati Raj, ask them who introduced UMEED for women development, who provided employment to over one lakh youth in government sector and an equal number in the private and the industrial sectors through various initiatives. Ask them who laid edifice for indigenous power generation of 9000 MWs and launched projects of the capacity of over 15000 MWs in six years, he said adding that it was his government which not only made new strides in all developmental sectors but enacted legislations to bring transparency and curb the chances of corruption.
Ask PDP what it has done during its term in office other than bringing the stigma of No. 1 corrupt State to Jammu and Kashmir, encouraging corrupt elements, giving misappropriation a free-hand and stopping the rehabilitation of youth in the mainstream by torpedoing the resolution brought in the State Legislative Assembly in this regard, the Working President National Conference said and added that PDP and its leadership has not locus stand to talk on these issues. Those who have remained neck deep in wrong doings and political misconduct and skulduggery ought not to give sermons to others, he said taking a dig on PDP.
The Working President National Conference also rejected the misinformation being spread by some Congress leaders regarding the development scenario in backward areas and criticising National Conference. You cannot hunt with hound and run with hare, he told Congress leaders and said that when National Conference was campaigning for Rahul Gandhi and Congress candidates in Parliament Elections, Congress saw everything good in National Conference, now when we are fighting elections separately Congress finds all faults in National Conference.
Tell me if you see your damage in Jammu and Kashmir due to NC what happened to you in rest of the Country. It was not National Conference there. Instead of finding faults in others you should scan your own functioning, he advised the Congress leaders.
