Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) held a meeting with workers in Srinagar to review the prevailing situation in the state post the collapse of the PDP-BJP coalition government. Following the meeting, senior functionaries of the JKPCC urged the Government of India to reach out to the people of J&K and address their problems, which they said were caused by the PDP-BJP coalition government.
The meeting was presided over by GA Mir and attended by former minister Taj Mohiuddin, Vice President Mohd Anwar Bhat, MLA Muhammad Amin Bhat, MLA Gulzar Ahmad, Spokesperson Farooq Andrabi, Gen Secretary Surinder Singh Channi, and many other senior leaders.
Commenting on the prevailing situation, Mir said that the “unholy alliance” of the PDP and BJP was destined to break, for the simple fact that the regime had compromised on the interests of people for the sake of power.
Mir blamed both PDP and BJP for the political uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir. “The mismanagement on their part will continue to haunt the state and the people as well,” he said.
Holding the PDP-BJP government responsible for the chaotic situation, Mir said that people of the state had suffered immensely on every count due to wrong and anti-people policies adopted by the previous government.
“After creating a mess in the state, the BJP pulled out of the government to hoodwink the people again for petty political gains,” he said.
Mir predicted that the BJP will not find any takers in Jammu and Kashmir after its decision of toppling the government in order to hide its failures. He said that the people had realized that the BJP can go to any extent to serve its political ends.
Mir called the Congress party an instrument of serving the people. “Congress party alone is capable of addressing the grievances of the people,” he said.
