Jugal Kishore Sharma, while addressing the party activists, said that the Omar Abdullah led coalition government in the state has been speaking in favour of Afzal Guru in assembly and calling him Sahib and on the contrary has no sympathy or pain for the patriotic personnel of army and para-military forces who are falling in line of their duty at the hands of terrorists. He said that the administration has been in effective in governance and corruption is crossing all the limits under this government. The NC has been using all the time to please the separatists and Congress is maintaining a stoic silence, which is very dangerous for the state as well as the country.

People are facing problems on account of inadequate supply of ration, there is hue and cry for electricity, water and other basic amenities.
