PDP agenda is gone: Beigh

Srinagar: Senior Peoples Democratic Party leader and party’s Member of Parliament from Baramulla Muzafar Hussain Beigh Tuesday said that the agenda which his party presented before the people during elections is gone and keeping the present functioning of the state government in view, the downfall of PDP is imminent.

Talking to private news channel, the former Deputy Chief Minister while expressing his fears over the prospects of PDP-led coalition government said that the way the government is functioning will lead to its (PDP’s) annihilation.

While warning the PDP-BJP coalition government of “creating mistrust, alienation and cynicism” in the state, Muzafar Hussain Beigh said that: “I am sorry to say today there is greater mistrust between Hindus and Muslims in the state. Today uppermost in the minds of people of Jammu and Kashmir is not just bread and butter but whether Muslims as a minority will be safe even in a Muslim majority state.”

Beigh said that workers of Peoples Democratic Party felt disappointed after Modi didn’t condemn the growing incidents of intolerance and rise of communalism in India during his address to people in Srinagar.

Pertinently, Beigh along with his colleague Tariq Hamid Karra did not attend Modi’s rally at SK Stadium on November 7.

Govt dropped Karra’s name from dignitaries list 

The state government had deliberately dropped the name of senior PDP leader and Member of Parliament Tariq Hamid Karra following his tirade against his party for forming government with BJP.

Sources said that the government is angry with Karra that his name was dropped from the list of the state dignatories whose names were presented before the Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his rally on November 7.

As per protocol, the government was bound to provide Karra’s name, since he is an MP, in the list of dignitaries whose name were to be mentioned by the PM.

“The dropping of Karra’s name was done deliberately by the government. When senior PDP leader and MP Muzaffar Hussian Baig was mentioned by the PM even though he did not attend the rally, why Karra’s name was not enlisted,” sources said, adding it indicates the coalition is alienating him.(
