NC accuses PDP-BJP of pursuing polarizing politics

Expresses concern over obtaining situation across State

Jammu, Mar 09 (KNS): National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Thursday cautioned against politics of divide being pursued by PDP and BJP, not only to polarize the state on communal and regional lines but also to conceal their failures the on governance front.
“But for putting the state into unprecedented political uncertainty and creating wedge between different segments of society, the PDP-BJP has nothing to take showcase as their achievement during the past nearly three years”, the Provincial President said at a function held at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan this afternoon.
Rana and the other senior functionaries welcomed Ch Riaz Ahmed Hakla, a former KAS officer and retired Special Secretary to Government, into the National Conference hold. They greeted him profusely on joining the party.
The Provincial President said the record of PDP and BJP is replete of machinations they carried out overtly and covertly to create obstacles in the State’s journey to progress and development when in the opposition and once coming into the power the two insensitive coalition partners have pushed Jammu and Kashmir back to decades with development getting into back-burner. Having miserably failed in keeping up their poll promises and assuaging the legitimate aspirations of the people, the alliance has taken to polarizing the situation which serves its political interests, he added.
Rana blamed the PDP and the BJP for encouraging polarization, saying such a deplorable situation is in conflict with glorious ethos of amity and brotherhood the state is known for and which has withstood test of times during most turbulent times, decades ago and in the recent past. He especially hit out at the BJP for pursuing emotive and reactionary politics and asserted that the people would frustrate all their machinations by further strengthening the bonds of amity and brotherhood.
The Provincial President expressed concern over obtaining situation across the state and said disturbed conditions were hazardous for peace and progress. “The era of stability left by National Conference led government stands tormented due to inept policies of the PDP-BJP coalition”, he said, hoping that the people would see through their nefarious game-plan and retrieve the state from the morass they have pushed in for their vested interest.
Rana exuded confidence that joining of public spirited people in the National Conference will enable it to pursue its assigned role of serving people with a renewed vigour.
Choudhry Riaz Ahmed Hakla, speaking on the occasion, reposed his faith in the policy and programmes of the National Conference, saying this is the only party that can take people, irrespective of caste, creed or colur together and steer the state to peace and progress.
Prominent among those present on the occasion, included State Vice Presidents Syed Mushtaq Ahmed Shah Bukhar and Rattan Lal Gupta, former Minister, Abdul Gani Malik, Provincial Secretary Sheikh Bashir Ahmed besides Brij Mohan Sharma, Bimla Luthra and Deepender Kour, former legislators, Jugal Mahajan, Ch. Haroon, Anil Dhar, Dharamveer Singh Jamwal, Abdul Gani Teli, KD Singh, S.S Bunty, Ayub Malik, Ch. Shabir Ahmad, Bashir, Komal Manhas, Reeta Gupta, Rohit Bali, Som Raj Taroch and others. (KNS)
