BJP, PDP wash dirty linnen in public as people have a last laugh

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 24: The cat seems to be finally out of the bag with the past coalition partners- PDP and the BJP spilling beans against each other, with one accusing the other of stalling the developmental projects. Meanwhile, through these jibes, people of the state have come to know how they were taken for a ride by these political parties for three years and three months.
As the BJP President in a scathing attack against the PDP accused the party of discriminating with the people of Jammu and Ladakh, the PDP seems to have opened up the mouths of canons, hitting back at the BJP and its ministers.
This is meanwhile for the first time since the two parties stitched a common ground in 2015 and formed the coalition government, that they are now in open casting jibes and holding each other responsible for the lack of the development. "Whatever these two parties have been stating, the fact is that the people of the state have suffered and have witnessed no development in the state during all these years.
The two political parties are trying to score brownie points for attacking each other in public. However, what they seem to have undermined is the fact that they are exposing themselves ruthlessly before the public," says a senior scribe covering the coalition breakdown in the state.
Former Chief Minister and the PDP President Mehbooba Mufti took to twitter on Sunday and refuted the allegations levelled against her by the BJP chief in Jammu on Saturday.
"Allegations of discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh have no basis in reality. Yes, the Valley has been in turmoil for a long time and the floods of 2014 were a setback, therefore needed focused attention. But that does not mean that there was any less development elsewhere."
"Results on the ground for all to see. If anything, they should review the performance of their own ministers, who largely represented the Jammu region, if there were any such concerns. None among them either at state or central level talked about it in the last three years."
"After expressing concern about freedom of expression in Jammu and Kashmir following Shujaat's murder, their MLA, notorious and even punished for his role in the aftermath of the unfortunate Kathua case, still threatens journalists belonging to the Valley. So what are they going to do about him?," Mehbooba tweeted.
This is interestingly for the first time that such harsh words were used by the PDP against its former coalition partner BJP. Not even the opposition national conference and the Congress have been so vocal in their opposition to the saffron party as is the PDP at present.
However, the BJP too looks fully charged, leaving no stone unturned to castigate the policies of the former Chief Minister. "Irony is that the political parties consider us a cannon fodder, making us believe what they want us to believe and love what they want us to love. They seem to have forgotten that those days are gone forever now," says a netizen while reacting to the war of words between the two parties.
