JAMMU: National Conference on Saturday lashed out at PDP and BJP for “engineering communal divide” and “sowing seeds of hate” in Jammu and Kashmir, saying the “unholy alliance” pursued the path of divide and rule as per their “sinister” agenda.
In an interaction with party workers, NC State Secretary Rattan Lal Gupta said, “The two opportunistic parties hobnobbed with each other for lust of power and created political instability after failing on deliverance front. The present situation is the manifestation of the unholy agenda the two parties carried out, as a result of which the state is at the cross roads of history.”
According to a statement issued here, Gupta said PDP and BJP pushed the state to the wall and “both parties were now shedding crocodile tears in a vain bid to make themselves politically relevant”.
“PDP and BJP are exposed before people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh,” he said and cautioned to maintain vigil against their “machinations”. He said the two parties were “terribly desperate” after losing power.
Gupta urged the Governor’s administration to address people’s problems which have accumulated during the past three and half year’s “misrule”.
He said the power and drinking water supply is erratic in Jammu division and people were at the receiving end, especially during the current scorching summers.
“The utility services are also in disarray as the anti-people government has virtually left the entire population in the lurch,” the NC leader said.
