Srinagar: Describing the remarks of Power Minister Piyush Goyal regarding J&K Governments demand for return of power projects as a setback to the State, JKPCC Chief G.A. Mir has said that it was the result of politics of exploitation and treachery on the part of PDP.
He was addressing a largely attended public meeting at Kund (Qazigund) in Distict Kulgam today. Denouncing PDP for misleading the people on various issues, PCC Chief said that the refusal by Union Power Minister is a real set back to the State, it has exposed the political drama being staged by PDP with regard to return of Power projects to the State.
He said it has become a habit on the part of PDP to mislead and betray the people on certain issues like revocation of AFSPA, the just refused return of Power Projects and other issues concerning state.
Seeking explanation from PDP over the issue, PCC Chief said that Ministers statement was the result of blatant lies and political gimmicks of coalition Govt led by PDP and indicative of complete failure of Coalition Govt. He said the tall claims with regard to overall development of the State by Coalition Govt have fallen flat.
Taking a dig at Chief Minister over the silence being maintained by her, PCC Chief said that inorder to further the political ambitions PDP leadership has surrendered the genuine demands and just rights to the BJP, what is Mehbooba Mufti doing in the CMs Chair when her demands are being rejected one by one, where is the agenda of alliance on which PDP is playing a lot of politics aiming to mislead the people, for the sake of power, PCC Chief questioned.
Referring to the other issues, PCC Chief said coalition Govt has adopted an oblivious attitude towards the problems people are facing, as a result, the people in all the three regions have become victims of the misrule by PDP BJP Coalition.
