NC- Cong alliance failed people: Mehbooba

Jammu: Peoples Democratic Party Thursday accused both ruling National Conference and Congress of not working seriously and failing the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and resorting to hollow slogans at the time of elections to hide their failures.
Addressing a series of rallies in Bhaderwah of Udhampur Parliamentary constituency, PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti said people want to vote for change, not for mere slogans and ruling parties both at the Centre and state have to show their report card of performance to people before seeking votes.
She accused NC of resorting to hollow slogans at the time of elections to hide the failures of its government over the last more than five years in the state.
“NC can’t befool the people by raking up emotive issues and by leveling false allegations against the PDP but it has to come out with its performance report before the people so that it becomes easy for everyone to judge what they have done over these years,” she said.
Attacking Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, the PDP leader said that helplessness of the ruling dispensation to give an account of its performance was genuine, given the fact it has nothing to show and its only achievements have been scams, frauds, misgoverance and killings.
“Omar Abdullah has virtually given up before the people’s power when he had said ‘parliamentary polls are not about his performance'”, she said.
Criticising both the NC and Congress, she said both of them have failed the people of Jammu and Kashmir as they remained disconnected from the ground and people have to cry even for basic amenities in the state.
