SRINAGAR Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir has cautioned people of southern districts of Valley not to get swayed away by the “crocodile tears” of Peoples Democratic Party and remember party’s “toffee and milk jibes.”
Mir, who is contesting Parliamentary polls from Anantnag constituency, lead a mega roadshow and addressed public meetings in Door Assembly segment, a statement issued by the JKPCC said.
According to the statement, Mir said that the ongoing polls were a contest between “constructive and opportunist” politics “in which the defeat of betrayal and opportunism is inevitable”.
Lashing out at former ruling party — the PDP –he said that people of entire Valley and south Kashmir in particular are well aware about the party’s “toffee and milk” jibes as well it’s “double-standards”. He accused PDP of sacrificing it’s agenda and conscious for power by not taking the aspirations of people who voted the party in 2014 to power into confidence.
“PDP is habitual of seeking forgiveness from time to time after surrendering its conscious and agenda for the sake of power. The party is desperate about the poll outcome, which is going to disappoint,” the Congress’s state chief claimed.
He said that the wounds inflict on the people of south Kashmir and elsewhere can never be healed because they have lost their dear ones due to the alleged failure and misgovernance by the PDP during its tenure, adding that “it will continue to remain as a big source behind the disillusionment and anger among the people”.
