Anantnag, Mar 4: Claiming to be the most credible political voice in the state, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said that it represents not only the aspiration of the people, but also symbolises accountability, transparency and able governance.
Senior PDP leader Mufti Sajjad Hussain said the PDP has a track record of pursuing the policy of dialogue for resolution of all issues and Mufti Mohammad Syed changed the discourse in the sub-continent when it witnessed spell of initiatives from 2002 to 2005. Commenting on the present situation in the state, Hussain said that J&K cannot afford confrontation as it has already suffered a lot. “A joint consensus is needed to work together for development and establishment of peace in the state while appealing to opposition to work for the development and be part of the peace process in the state,” he said while addressing a rally in Anantnag.
Lauding Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Hussain said her efforts for peace and reconciliation have started paying dividends. “She is the only leader with credibility and honesty and last hope of Kashmir. We are looking towards her. The way has extended full support to the PDP for restoration of peace and normalcy in the state is remarkable,” he said.
Hussain said that whether it was Amnesty to youth in Kashmir for saving their future or initiation of dialogue process for restoration of normalcy in the state, this government has walked an extra mile to ensure peaceful atmosphere for the people of the state. It is this government’s achievement that we have been ranked at top slot in implementation of NREGA scheme.
He, however, took a dig at the National Conference (NC) for allegedly misleading the people and asked its leadership to go for introspection before casting aspersions on others. “They have no moral rights to question a government which has delivered the people effectively and ensured transparency, accountability and fairness in every sphere of life,” Hussain said.
He said that alliance between PDP and BJP was formulated for the betterment of the state with a proper agenda and policy of development of the state and the Government is seriously pursuing its agenda of ensuring specific developmental needs of all the regions of the state.
He said the party is committed to implement Agenda of Alliance (AoA) and the Chief Minister herself has taken with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi during her recent visit for its early implementation. She also discussed the overall situation, including execution of Prime Minister’s Development Package in the State and impressed upon the need to reach out to all sections of the society in the State which has been duly recognized in the AoA.
