PDP-BJP owe apology to J&K people: NC leader
Jammu: The PDP and the BJP owe an apology to the people of Jammu and Kashmir for compromising their interests, the provincial president of National Conference (NC) Devender Singh Rana said today.
The two mandated parties kept their personal interests above the larger interest of the people on every front, be it development, governance, security or political aspirations he said.
Addressing office bearers of the provincial committee and district units of the Jammu division at the party headquarters here, Rana said the PDP-BJP coalition was an unholy alliance” stitched together with the “singular agenda of remaining in power .
As a consequence, public interest became a causality, he added.
He said the PDP-BJP coalition government had taught the people a lesson to take their decisions with caution and sagacity.
The failed PDP-BJP experience has posed a big challenge for the National Conference to restore peoples’ faith in parliamentary democracy, he added.
Rana said the NC, which believed in regional unity and communal amity, alone could undo the damage inflicted by the erstwhile government’s divisive politics.
