Srinagar: While in coalition with the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir, PDP “remained consistently firm on its agenda which was included in agenda of alliance and that was the reason the BJP had to run away from coalition,” PDP’s General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura said on Thursday.
Hanjura was speaking at a high level meeting of the PDP cadres in Srinagar.
He said that PDP’s “firm belief on its principles led the BJP to turn its back and being in the government PDP kept insisting for the withdrawal of the FIRs, amnesty for the stone pelters, and return of the power projects from the NHPC”.
Hanjura also claimed that the best model for the good governance is the period between 2002 and 2005 and that after the 2014 polls the PDP didn’t get a clear mandate and out of the compulsion had to join hands with the BJP.
The meeting chaired by party vice president Abdul Rahman Veeri was also attended by PDP’s State Secretary Aseya Naqash, District President Srinagar Mohammad Khurshid Alam, Mohammad Ashraf Mir, Abdul Qayoom Wani, Noor Mohammad Sheikh and several others.
Speaking on the occasion, Veeri expressed concern over the development deficit being witnessed in Srinagar with majority of the developmental projects gone into limbo.
According to the PDP Vice President, people of Srinagar had been exposed to severe hardships due to the lack of basic amenities with mounting crises of water and bad roads leaving the city inhabitants in lurch.
He said majority of the roads in Srinagar have been left unattended with macadamisation being given a least priority.
Veeri said the “absence of developmental activities has created a crisis like situation on ground and need of the hour is to stand up and raise issues pertaining to common man and get them resolved on priority”.
Aseya Naqash said that the PDP led government took “courageous and brave measures that protected the state from the BJP’s onslaught”.
Aseya said that within the government as head of the coalition government and as chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti “resisted every attempt by the central government to take any inroads on the constitutional position of the state and freed more than 12 thousand youth who were arrested in stone pelting cases besides compelling the central government to announce unilateral ceasefire”.
Khurshid Alam in his address stressed for the greater coordination between the party functionaries and stated that time is near when the PDP will emerge as a resplendent torch that could guide Kashmir’s future generations towards prosperity.
In spite of being in coalition with the BJP, Alam said the PDP “didn’t allow the later to fulfil its nefarious agenda in Kashmir and the government employed country’s best lawyers for the protection of Article 35-A in the Supreme Court”.
Other PDP leaders who were part of the meeting include Abdul Hameed Kosheen, Dr Ali Mohammad, Abdul Rouf Bhat, Airf Laigaroo, Haji Parvez, Abdul Qayoom, and several others.
