Srinagar: Urging people to remain vigilant against nefarious designs of disruptive elements, ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today alleged that National Conference (NC) has always thrived on unrest and boycott politics in Jammu and Kashmir.
“This party (NC) has always survived on bloodshed and disruptions. It supported the hartal and election boycott policies for its own political survival at the cost of peoples’ interests, a PDP spokesperson alleged.
He said that the NC and its leadership allegedly created fear psychosis among the masses across the state in order to remain in power. “Formation of PDP in 1999 was aimed at creating an atmosphere of peace and trust and restoring faith of people on democratic setup, he said.
By giving mandate to PDP in 2002, people reposed their faith in the institution of dialogue and reconciliation and created a genuine and credible political alternative in the state, he said, adding that the party proved itself by fulfilling the promise it made to the people and restoring peace with dignity.
Terming Congress-NC as an “opportunist alliance”, he said that people’s faith in democracy and government institutions was restored by Peoples Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir.
PDP is the most credible political voice in the state. The party represents not only the aspirations and hope of people but also symbolizes accountability, transparency and able governance, he further alleged.
Reiterating PDP`s commitment to strive for the development of the state, he said that people have only faced miseries whenever NCCongress allied.
NC, especially Dr Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah have represented Srinagar parliamentary constituency and also served as union minister after being elected from this segment. Let them inform the people what they have actually contributed, he added.
