SRINAGAR: President J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) G A Mir on Wednesday said Congress is emerging as a strong alternative in all three regions of the state “especially when the present coalition has utterly failed and stands exposed on all fronts”.
Addressing a press conference at PCC HQ Jammu, Mir took a dig at PDP-BJP coalition government saying that “both are fully committed to power but have failed to feel the pulse of people who are totally fed up with their opportunistic politics”.
“They (PDP-BJP) try to throw dust into the eyes of their respective electorate by diversionary tactics but people of this state are politically awakened and mature enough to see through their real game plan, which is to remain glued to power despite contradictions and bickering on all sensitive issues arising in the state,” he said.
JKPCC chief said the present government has created “mistrust and uncertainty” all around and its continuance itself is full of uncertainty. “Every other day, they reiterate the stability of their coalition despite opposed to each other on all issues,” he said. “They cannot divert attention of people from their total failure by resorting to reshuffles and changing faces.”
Mir said the reshuffle was the result of certain situations and not a routine affair. He said people are aware of the compelling circumstances.
Reacting to the bickering within BJP over reshuffle especially the assertions by some legislators that BJP is anti-Dalit, Congress chief said this vindicates our stand.
JKPCC chief announced that the organisational structure from booth level delegates, block president, district delegates, PCC delegates from each block and AICC delegates has been approved and announced by the central election authority, after the process of elections at various levels under the returning officers appointed by party.
More than 10 lakh new members have enrolled in the state, over 40 thousands active workers and booth level delegates have been elected, he said and thanked the party high command for creation of new organisational blocks as per the CD blocks in the state besides increasing quota for PCC and AICC from the state.
