Ganderbal a victim of VVIP constituency syndrome: Altaf Bukhari
12/3/2020 11:25:59 PM

SRINAGAR, Dec 3: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Thursday said that the Ganderbal district portrays a typical example of the victims of VVIP constituency syndrome in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Unfortunately, the leaders who were supported and elected by the people of Ganderbal since 19970s treated their electorate as commodities that can be turned into an inheritance,” Bukhari said, while addressing the Party’s DDC election campaign at Ganderbal.
He said that the blind trust of the people was exploited by parties like National Conference and PDP which considered Ganderbal as their political stronghold until recently.
“From late Sheikh Abdullah who was elected from Ganderbal twice, in 1975 and 1977, his son Farooq Abdullah won from this constituency in 1983, 1987 and 1996. Farooq Saheb’s son Omar Abdullah won assembly elections from Ganderbal in 2008. This huge public mandate was breached time and again to the hilt by its ‘defacto’ rulers which ultimately resulted into Ganderbal’s dismal developmental scenario,” he remarked.
Bukhari asked why did the elected governments led by the National Conference and PDP fail to allot construction of 93-MW New Ganderbal Hydropower Project despite the Power Development Corporation (PDC) having cleared all the requisite formalities. “The two former chief ministers Mr. Omar Abdullah and Ms Mehbooba Mufti owe answers for this inordinate delay. This question should be asked by the electorate of Ganderbal who have suffered immensely since the last 30 years at the hands of those leaders who considered them as their inherited property?” Bukhari remarked. The Apni Party president observed that after getting elected from this district, the MLAs would regrettably outsource their public mandate and appoint local chieftains to manage their duties.
Bukhari said that the people of district Ganderbal suffered huge brunt of this inaccessibility of their representatives and the gate-keeping introduced by them in the last three decades.
Speaking on this occasion, Ghulam Hassan Mir, senior vice president of Apni Party, said that the economic base of Jammu and Kashmir has turned extremely weak because of the continued disturbances and now people need to wake up differentiate between the dreams and realities.
Apni Party Provincial President Kashmir Mohammad Ashraf Mir who also addressed the convention said that there is a dire need for a proper policy response from the government so that the confidence of the private investors is restored in J&K.
The convention was also addressed by party leader Javed Ahmad Mir besides contesting candidates from district Ganderbal.
