G A Mir said this while addressing party workers and peoples delegations at Khanabal Anantnag, emphasizing them to work hard and ensure defeat of politics of exploitation and betrayal on the part of PDP and other parties, who have equally misled and betrayed people for power, playing emotional cards, from time to time, for the sake of electoral gains.
Mir said people of entire Jammu and Kashmir have witnessed complete misrule and mis-governance by the PDP-BJP coalition, who secured votes by playing with their emotions on various counts.
“PDP’s slogan of self-rule, repeal of AFSPA, stopping BJP-RSS from making inroads in valley, bringing back power projects, BJP’s abrogation of special status and many other sensitive issues on which both the parties misled people, as a result, PDP got 28 and BJP 25 seats in 2014 elections, despite the contradiction in their approach they formed the alliance by not caring about the aspirations of people both in Jammu and Kashmir resulting in there was anger and anguish among the people, which was also responsible for huge damages caused to peace and development in the State,” he said.
“People are wise enough to understand as to what PDP was doing for securing votes keeping aside Toffee, Milk politics, as if, nothing has happened in valley, but I am confident this time the betrayal and backstabbing on the part of PDP will be responded strongly by ensuring it’s defeat in the elections,” Mir added and said PDP, BJP or any other political party cannot longer befool people by playing emotional cards to generate sympathy.
JKPCC president emphasized the people of south Kashmir to strengthen the secular forces by ensuring Congress party victory in the present elections and send a strong voice to parliament to represent them genuinely.
