PDP introduced correctives to JK political system: Mehbooba

early times report
Jammu, Nov 19: President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti has said the arrival of PDP on the scene has introduced some much needed correctives into the political system of the state.
Addressing public meetings in Khour Gali in Panchari area Reasi district and Krimichi in Udhampur district, the PDP president said this had not only ended single party monopoly on power but had promoted contest and competition in government formation which was the essence of democracy.
Mehbooba said for nearly four decades the National conference had enjoyed unchallenged power which had turned it into an arrogant and thoroughly corrupt agent of exploitation. The PDP president said that her party with its increasing appeal in all regions and a shining record of performance as leading partner in the previous coalition with congress had established itself as the single and best alternative to change the present corrupt and inefficient system of governance. Mehbooba said the party which came to power on the plank of development, jobs to 8th pass, free electricity to poor, 50 rupee reduction on the price of cooking gas cylinder etc has done everything contrary to those promises. On one hand, Mehbooba noted, NC has been pleading lack of resources for paying wages to daily wagers, casual labor in different departments, enhancing wages of SPOs, or continuation of NYC but on the other hand the government has been making back door appointments in large numbers.
Mehbooba said the present government has rendered all the institutions either discredited or defunct including the latest institution of panchayat. She said the very basic purpose of taking governance to villages has been made into a big joke and it seems these panchayat elections were conducted only to elect four MLCs for the coalition. Mehbooba complimented the people of the area for having elected very capable panches and sarpanches and also assured them of full support for their empowerment.
PDP president said that Krimchi area has huge potential of tourism so this belt should be brought under tourism map. She especially mentioned towards ancient Pandob temples located in this belt which can be turned into a tourist spot. She also demanded electric supply in local Gujjar basti.
Speaking on the occasion PDP general secretary Thakur Balbir Singh said that people of Jammu province have all along voted for BJP, Congress and other Jammu based parties but those parties could never become an alternative so as to be able to end the authoritarian and corrupt NC rule.
Shanti Devi, Partap Sharma, Sukhdev Singh, Pritam Chand, Kuldeep Raj, Vimal Sharma, Ramesh Chander, Sarpanch Munshi Ram, Sarpanch Kashmir Singh, Sarpanch Yashpal, Sarpanch Kailasho Devi, Sarpanch Teerath Ram, Sarpanch Salima, Jamal Din, Raj Kumar, Bhushan Kumar and others also spoke on the occasion.
