Describing PDP as a party surviving on lies and falsehood, Jammu Provincial President ,J&K National Conference, Rattan Lal Gupta on Saturday said that PDP has become habitual of spreading untrue stories to hoodwink people for vested interests. “Though the balloon of their lies was punctured by the Chief Minister –Omar Abdullah in the Assembly, the party has not learnt a lesson or two and is still continuing its tradition of practice of carrying the false boggy”, he added.
In a statement, Rattan Lal , while reacting to a statement made by Mufti Mohammad Sayeed regarding political corruption, said that the PDP leadership has no locus standi to point fingers at others as the party (PDP) has always nurtured defection and awarded the defectors.
Citing the example of Mohammad Rafi Mir and Nizam-ud-Din
Gupta said that infact PDP workers are deserting this (PDP) party and joining National Conference because they have became fed-up of the deceitful policy of the PDP which is in a habit of playing different cards in the different regions and befooling people. He said the dual behavior of the PDP has become its benchmark and public is now quite aware of these tactics of attempting to grab power.
Rattan Lal Gupta further said that National Conference and Congress share common principles of justice, secular belief and amicable approach for ensuring welfare of every citizen irrespective of religion or region. “We do not befool people in the name of religion or region, but in our eyes every citizen is equal and every area is equally important in the development process” , he asserted.
He said that the cordial relationship between Congress and National Conference has frustrated the PDP leadership, which had indulged in leg pulling during its coalition with Congress, it never allowed Congress leadership to work without creating hurdles. This is why PDP is either raising the issues of the Common Minimum Programme and other irrelevant issues, he said adding that the coalition dharma PDP performed during its collation with the Congress is an open secret and it has got exposed before the masses. The PDP is actually power-hungry that is why it is raising misleading and emotional slogans to lead the people astray for personal and cheap goals. Gupta said that public is wise enough to understand these tactics.
Gupta said that National Conference – Congress coalition is committed to catapult the state’s socio-economic scenario and provide justice to every citizen and create an atmosphere of equitable development for all areas. The blue print of ‘people friendly’ development policy has already been formulated and a gigantic development process has kick-started in the state, he maintained.
Rattan Lal Gupta said that National Conference has roots in the masses and does not survive on slogans and propagation of falsehood. It has witnessed many vicissitudes and has triumphed, he said. The party whether in power or out of it has championed the cause of general public upholding its principles and ideology, he said, adding that it would continue to do so in future. “We represent all the three regions of Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh and are committed for all-round and equitable development of all the three regions”, he said adding that the next six years would be known as the years of development, peace and prosperity in Jammu & Kashmir.
