National Conference on Thursday alleged that former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti betrayed people’s mandate by joining hands with Bharatiya Janata Party.
NC’s general secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar in a statement said, “The recent blatant assertions of Mehbooba Mufti have vindicated our stand that the Agenda of Alliance between PDP –BJP was not sacrosanct. After presiding over the scores of civilian killings, brazen nepotism, barefaced corruption, Mehbooba Mufti has ingenuously accepted that the idea of alliance with BJP was to grind her own axe. The most touted Agenda of Alliance turned out to be a bit of rubbish, both the parties unscrupulously hid behind it to pursue their own vested interests,” he said.
NC COMMITTED TO FULFILL ASPIRATIONS OF YOUTH: NASIR
Meanwhile, provincial president of National Conference Nasir Aslam Wani on Thursday claimed that the overwhelming response of youth towards NC is an indication that party would win the forthcoming assembly elections in the state with an overwhelming majority.
Addressing a meet of YNC district presidents here Wani said, “National Conference doesn’t hanker after power. Our agenda is to secure the future of youth. Our leadership has the sincerity of thought and vigor to steer the state towards safe shores,” he said adding that the mass emotional out pouring for National Conference is reflective of our deep rooted base among people. “History is going to repeat itself this time, people especially youth have made it a point to give NC a resounding support to advance the cause of development.”
YNC provincial president Kashmir Salman Ali Sagar while addressing the meet asserted that the rhetoric of PDP proved out to be a damp squib and that policies of PDP have pushed the youth from hope to fear. “Youth are all out for Omar Abdullah. The youth votes will be the bedrock of new Kashmir. Our party believes that youth are the valuable assets of our state,” he said.
