Empowered DDCs can do grassroot level development : Omar Abdullah 

Srinagar, Jan 18 (KNS): Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that empowering  District Development Council (DDC) can bring grassroots level democracy and grassroot level development.

" If Govt will empower them properly, then grassroots level democracy and grassroots development can happen.. Sofar there are no signs of democracy," he said a programme in Kulgam area of south Kashmir.

Regarding the petition of Waseem Rizvi in Supreme Court seeking removal of Quranic verses, he said, " he is one among us. We cannot blame non-Muslims for this he is not representing a county of more than 1 billion and 30 crore. Whatever he has is done is against the constitution. Strict action should be taken against him. If he has done something under the grab of constitution, then we can say constitution is wrong..but that is not the case."

He also said that they have always advised People of Ladakh that their interests will be served better with J&K. (KNS)
