PDP lacks BJP's support on development, AoA reduced to rubble: Saroori
1/11/2017 11:57:31 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 11: Senior Congress leader and MLA from Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori, while replying on Governor's address in the legislative assembly, said that PDP 'lacks financial and developmental support from its alliance partner BJP the way UPA government under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh use to help the state during Mufti Mohammad Syed tenure as Chief Minister of the state during 2002 to 2005.
He said that the Mufti and Ghulam Nabi Azad era had witnessed a massive development push in trouble-torn state of Jammu and Kashmir with liberal funding from the central government.
"PDP often refers to Mufti Syed's first tenure as golden era in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It was possible only due to liberal support and funding from UPA government," said Saroori.
He said that despite such huge support from the Centre, PDP backstabe Congress in 2008. He said that he was happy that PDP had formed an alliance with BJP for the sake of development in the state, but he was surprised that not a single new development work was started in last two years of PDP-BJP government.
He said that the much hyped Rs 80,000 cr developmental package announced by Prime Minister Narindra Modi was nothing, but the projects started and funded by the erstwhile UPA government. He said Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, Nashri Tunnel, Railway line to Kashmir, Katra, Yatri Niwas, Haj House and New Legislative Complex along with several other developmental projects either completed or underway were initiated by the UPA government.
He said that smooth functioning of the various institutions 'needs proper attention'. He said that even PDP 'feels disappointed the way Centre has been ignoring the state while providing funds for development works'.
"At the time of coming closer with BJP, PDP must have thought that BJP and Modi will help them in the way UPA used to help the state, but to my disappointment I will only say that the Agenda of Alliance document is merely a paper horse as it has been reduce to rubble," said Saroori.
He also called for implementation of the recommendations of various Committees like Rangarajan Committee, Justice Sageer committee and the recommendations of other working committees. He said that it was a dream of Mufti Syed to make all the regions of the state prosperous and added that the late leader also called for undertaking construction of Sangpora- Vailoo and Dubijan tunnels, connecting the Chenab valley and Pir Panchal areas of Jammu with Kashmir division.
Saroori said that the dreams of delimitation showed by BJP were not anywhere to be seen and added that BJP promises to accord UT status to Ladakh, rehabilitation of PoK, West Pak refugees and rehabilitation of LoC victims had proved to be hollow slogans. He said that BJP's silence on article 370 and its mention in the governor's address 'exposes double speak of BJP which wants to stick to power by compromising with the aspirations of the people who voted them'. He said BJP ministers were part of the cabinet meeting which accepted the strengthening of Article 370 mentioned at serial No 6 of governor's address.
He said that government had failed to bring any new projects in the state during last 16 months and said that construction of Sangpora-Viloo and Mughal Road tunnel found no mention in address. He said that there was also no mention of return of power projects like Dool-Hasti, Uri and Salal as was recommended by Ranga Rajan committee.
