SRINAGAR, Apr 14: National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today said the ensuing parliamentary elections provide right opportunity to the people to seek answers from PDP on the implementation of the promises it made while canvassing for 2014 assembly elections.
Omar was addressing a public gathering at Larnoo-Kokarnag. He said promises that were made by PDP during the run up for 2014 assembly elections turned out to be big lies.
“People have every right to seek answers from PDP and its leadership. Its high time for people to take account of past years of the PDP led coalition government. They had said that relations with Pakistan will improve, contrary to it we have the clouds of war looming over us. We saw our educated youth joining militant ranks; we saw some highly educated scholars, teachers joining militant ranks, such is the level of disenchantment in our youngsters. The rampant nepotism and corruption has disheartened the youth. There was no expansion in tourist related activities," Omar said
The former chief minister added that PM Modi says that he gave gas cylinders to every family, but what good will an empty cylinder do."Cooking gas has become dearer and costs Rs 1000 at present. How will the underprivileged class afford to refill the cylinders at RS 1000? What was the fate of the proposed tunnel that would have connected Kokarnag to Kishtwar? How many new roads were they able to lay during their stint in government with BJP? These are the questions that PDP should respond to," he said.
Omar stated that "today we cannot use our highways, and God forbid if there is any urgency, how can those living in remote areas take patients to city hospitals." "This is what they have done to our state of affairs. Nonetheless we have to usher in a new era of peace, development and justice in our state. The state faced immense hardships since BJP-PDP joined hands," he said.
