National Conference on Tuesday said Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) “sellout and recurring ideological U-turns” had pushed Kashmir into throes of instability and turmoil.
Addressing party meeting at Anantnag today, senior party leader and south zone president Sakina Ittoo said deteriorating law and order situation and unabated spate of civilian killings was a manifestation of PDP’s politics of deceit and rank opportunism.
The meeting, which was attended by senior party leaders, legislators and office bearers included Altaf Kaloo, Abdul Majeed Bhat (Larmi), Peerzada Ghulam Ahmed Shah, Ghulam Nabi Ratanpuri, Bashir Ahmed Veeri, Mohiuddin Mir, Shafi Syed, Imran Nabi Dar, Safdar Khan, constituency In-charge functionaries and block presidents.
“The continued bloodshed in the Valley for past three years has failed to awaken sleeping conscience of the PDP as it continues to hold on to power at great costs to the state’s stability and peace. This is the same party that sought votes to keep BJP out of power and then went on to create false moral smokescreens to sell 2014 mandate to the BJP. Every single promise made by PDP ahead of the 2014 elections and then in their ‘Agenda of the Alliance’ stands broken,” Ittoo said while addressing the meeting.
Ittoo expressed anguish and sorrow on behalf of the party over horrific rape and murder of an eight year old child in Kathua and said the crime was a matter of shame for the PDP as Gujjar and Bakerwal communities in Jammu had been at the receiving end ever since the PDP-BJP government took over.
