PDP failed to give respite to people of South Kashmir: JKPCC chief

Says in Congress rule, voice of people won't go unheard


Srinagar, Mar 29 (KNS): The state congress chief, Ghulam Ahmad Mir on Friday said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) always failed to gave respite to the people of South Kashmir who always supported the party to ensure that their voice won't go unheard.

Mir while talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) that PDP has failed the South Kashmir people on ground rather added to their miseries by increasing the number of graveyards and number of handicapped persons by there.

He added that people of south Kashmir had faith on PDP and supported them many times, but "the party in return hurt them. Let PDP president Mehbooba Mufti make it clear that when she raised the voice for the people in parliament." He said the verdict thrown by people in South was never questioned by anyone but in return people were compelled to suffer.

Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president further assured the people of South Kashmir that their voice won't go unheard as Congress will raise their aspirations in the parliament.

About separate division for Ladakh, Mir said that demand of people was genuine but the route used to take such a decision was not correct. "To give Ladakh a separate division was the genuine demand of people but it as the domain of elected government to take such decision," he said.

Mir said if the separate division to Ladakh would have been given by the elected government then a debate would have been taken place through which many other related issues division for Pir Panchal and other things would have been come to fore, which would have been also redressed.

Mir added that previous Congress government has also opened up new Tehsils and other related things but the procedure to provide separate decision to Ladakh was not correct.

He also said that boycott of elections was no solution but the verdict would help BJP to emerge victorious. (KNS)
