SRINAGAR, July 5 : Chief minister Omar Abdullah today accused the PDP leadership of hatching conspiracies against Indira-Sheikh accord, Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s government, Pandits, G M Shah government as also against its coalition partner (Congress) in 2008.
Omar was addressing a public meeting at Veeri in Bijbehara. “You (PDP leadership) always tried to derail democratic process. You brought Jagmohan as the governor of Jammu and Kashmir to dislodge Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s government,” he said and reminded the PDP of the killings of large number of innocents during the tenure of Jagmohan when Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was home minister in the V.P. Singh’s government.
“My government approved and implemented rehabilitation policy for the youth who had crossed over LoC but did not take to guns. We also discarded the blacklist maintained by the police department for stopping passports to the relatives of militants. PDP raised slogan about reduction of forces but we acted on ground and removed 40 bunkers from Srinagar city alone,” chief minister said adding that his government put Jammu and Kashmir Police Force on front and other security forces on second line. “You talked of resolving Kashmir issue but slept over your tall promises in this regard,” he told PDP adding that it was his government who worked and facilitated process of political addressing of political issues of Jammu and Kashmir.
Chief minister said the leadership of PDP sold dreams to people but his government firmly addressed the cherished desire of people on both political and development fronts.
“They (PDP) hyped the emotions of people by raising sentimental slogans but miserably failed when the occasion of delivery arose. They talked too much on burning issues but mumbled, fumbled and jumbled when they got the occasion to rise and strike,” he said remembering the people of the tall promises made by PDP leadership to the people about healing touch and political stability but doing nothing on ground when in power.
Omar said PDP leadership forgot all their promises made with the people and indulged in conspiracies to stick to power by hook or crook. “Their leader (Mufti Mohammad Sayeed) once in a speech at Ganderbal told the gun wielding youth to drop guns as he had come as their representative to talk for them every resident is witness how PDP and its leadership opposed the rehabilitation and repatriation policy for the youth who had crossed the LoC when this party was in government and a resolution supported by National Conference was tabled in Legislative Assembly”. He also cited the example of denying passports to the relatives of militants during the tenure of PDP adding that these people were placed in a blacklist by the then government and denied them passports for Haj purposes.
Chief minister also referred to the killings of innocents during the PDP regime and said that the slogan of ‘healing touch’ actually proved to be mere a hoax to befool the people and grab power.
Omar asked the National Conference workers and leaders to reach out to people in every area, make them aware of the people-friendly policies and historic initiatives initiated by the coalition government and blunt the false propaganda carried by PDP against the government.
