‘PDP set example for good governance’

Jammu, July 30: (GNS) Reiterating his resolve to carry forward the mission of ending State’s political and economic despair, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed today said that his party has a pragmatic roadmap for the resolution of Kashmir problem by involving all stakeholders including India, Pakistan and people of Jammu and Kashmir. “We will take our agenda to all parts of the country to convince the countrymen to accept PDP’s practical roadmap for restoring lasting peace in Jammu and Kashmir”, Mufti said while addressing a function organized in connection with the foundation day of the party here today. According to GNS, Mufti said that PDP’s roadmap was the viable, credible and pragmatic solution for addressing internal and external dimensions of Kashmir problem. “In 2002 we had only 16 members but still we had pursued the peace process with determination and commitment and established peace in this region.” He said it was all due to the credibility of the PDP that previous NDA regime headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and present UPA government led by Dr Manmohan Singh had whole heartedly supported whatever initiatives taken by us for restoring peace in this region. While the quoting the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) which was formed after PDP-Congress had entered into alliance in 2002, Mufti said his party never compromised its pro-peace agenda for the power. “The goal of the coalition government is to heal the physical, psychological and emotional wounds inflicted by the fourteen years of militancy, to restore the rule of law in Jammu and Kashmir.” While quoting first objective of the CMP formed after 2002 elections, Mufti said whatever steps we had suggested for restoration of peace were incorporated in the CMP. “The then Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani had hold dialogue with Hurriyat Conference leaders during our regime”, he recalled. Sayeed said while power is no consideration for PDP, but governance is a serious issue. “PDP led coalition regime had set an example of good governance by establishing accountability and transparency in the system. Meanwhile, PDP general secretary Mohammad Dilawar Mir has said PDP does not believe in political exploitation through emotional slogans but has contributed to political and economic development of the state without ever shifting its stand. Mir said that PDP during its brief time in government created a conducive environment where even India and Pakistan came close together to find a way forward in this regard, but the momentum could not survive subsequent events and changes. “While the PDP led coalition secured two huge economic packages from Prime Ministers Vajpayee and Dr Manmohan Singh, the NC government is now unable even to secure adequate plan allocations from the centre In spite of making worst compromises by selling out water resources and JK Bank, the present government is now unable to fund even routine development projects,” Mir said. He said the NC has put a restriction on the vision of our youth and have been exploiting them in the name of seasonal, casual, daily rated labor and class IV employees and then not even paying them wages regularly. “The PDP has a definite policy to change this situation and revolutionize the employment scenario in the state,” Mir added.
