Resolution, Development have to go hand in hand: Mehbooba
Mehbooba said that keeping the peculiar situation of the state in mind PDP had adopted an agenda which had the potential of addressing all the dimensions of kashmir issue and also providing a better , transparent and accountable system of governance . PDP agenda, she said is not a mere slogan but an article of faith for the party and this was displayed practically during PDP congress rule.
Mehbooba said PDP-congress govt adopted a reconciliatory policy by revoking POTA , releasing prisoners , preventing harassment of people which helped in creating right atmosphere for political process. Similarly Cease fire on the borders , initiation of dialogue between GOI and separatists , opening of cross LOC roads during that tenure were seen as great milestones in the resolution of kashmir problem, she said.
Mehbooba said besides reviving the political process development and governance took a huge leap forward resulting in restoration of public faith in that government system. She said PDP-Congress govt started with the burden of all kinds of problems , but were able to not only restore sense of security and normalcy in the state but also start a new chapter of development all over the state . In spite of ban on govt recruitments that govt employed thousands of REhbar e taaleem teachers, Aganwari workers and police constables etc on merit without any corruption or favouritism .
Mehbooba said now four years after the formation of NC -Cong govt , the state has once again been brought to the verge of destruction . Development and accountability have taken back seat and corruption is ruling the roost . People have to pay through their nose for the electricity which is hardly available, ration provided does not suffice the family , gas is not available even at triple the price . She said lifting of ban on govt jobs which should have been a boon for the youth has been hijacked by back door entries for cash ,and re employment of retired employees on very high posts .
Mehbooba said in 2002 PDP Congress govt had come like a breath of fresh air in spite of so many problems. Similarly, in future PDP will deal efficiently and with compassion the problems created by the present regime. She said the party would work for the betterment of people by providing a clean , accountable and fair system of governance which has been demolished by the NC through its misgovernance and wrong policies.
