Srinagar April 10: Cautioning the people about the designs of PDP BJP and other smaller groups fielded by the Saffron Party as proxies under a conspiracy to divide the voters in the upcoming elections, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC)President and Party Candidate for Anantnag Parliamentary Constituency G.A. Mir has said that Saffron Party and it’s former alliance partner PDP would go to any extent to mislead people for electoral gains.

G.A.Mir also hit out at Centre, State Govt for withdrawing Security of protected persons on the crucial time of Polls, saying that there was hell of difference between Raj Bhawan & Centre Govt on these issues.

Addressing election meeting in Kapran Dooru , G.A. Mir cautioned the people about the designs of PDP BJP and other small groups, who have been fielded as proxies in the upcoming elections  to divide the people in Jammu and Kashmir for votes, but at the same time, he felt confident that they will miserably fail, as that the masses  in all the three regions have  realized  as to what PDP BJP has done during their three and half year’s rule  in the State.

 

He said the misrule and mis-governance by PDP BJP have vitiated the atmosphere in the valley since they assumed power, all the good work done by previous Govts have gone waste, people in all the three regions have been made to suffer on economic and developmental fronts due to the opportunistic politics on the part of PDP BJP, Mir said.

The developmental scenario started by the UPA I UPA II in the State has come to standstill due to negligent attitude and contradiction in the approach of PDP BJP, resulting in all the three regions have suffered immensely on developmental front.

He also hit out at Prime Minister Narinder over claiming to be serious about the development of State, saying that BJP Govt at centre is concerned about the electoral gains and not about the development of people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The people of South Kashmir have faced countless difficulties due to wrong policies and betrayal by PDP, as a result, there is grave disillusionment among the people, loss of innocent lives and continuous bloodshed in South Kashmir and elsewhere has exposed PDP before the people as a result they(people) have lost faith in this Party.

On this occasion, G.A. Mir expressed grave concern over the decision of withdrawing Security to protected persons on the brink of Parliamentary Elections and described the decision as very unfortunate move to scuttle the movement of political activists.

The order passed by Raj Bhawan regarding scrapping of the security withdrawal order is nowhere visible on the ground, which is indicative of the lack of concern with regard to security of political leaders on the part of State and Centre Govt, Mir added and condemned both State & Centre Govt for being insensitive about the safety of Political Leaders in JK.

Those who were present on this occasion included Ali Mohd Mantoo, Peer Shahbaz BP, Mohd Iqbal Ahanger, Tanveer Ahmad Khan, Hamid Malik, Shahid Bha, Imtiyaz Ahmad and others.
