Jammu: Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ghulam Ahmed Mir has questioned the PDP-BJP Coalition Government to count a single achievement during its three years regime, while it brought miseries, destructions and pushed the State backward on all fronts especially on the path of unrest, violence and instability. Addressing a day long convention of Congress workers at Udhampur today, PCC chief said that present 'unprincipled' and 'opportunist' alliance of two ideologically opposite political forces has pushed the State in to worst kind of bloodshed, mis-governance and misrule as both partners are pulling in different directions driven by their political interests almost on all sensitive issues including to deal with the security scenario. PDP and BJP are together only for the sake of power but their approach is almost opposite to each other and they address to their respective galleries which further adds fuel to the fire. Mir said the State is passing through a worst phase of political uncertainty amidst deteriorated security situation because of lack of any clear roadmap to deal with situation in Kashmir and worst situation on our borders with Pak and China. The present Government has not learnt any lessons from the past on Kashmir and indulging in rhetoric's only while ground situation continues to be grim. The Government could not hold Lok Sabha by-poll in Anantnag and the Panchayat elections are delayed time and again while Government makes false claims of improvement of situation. Reminding the Chief Minister Mehabooba Mufti about the initiatives of Dr Manmohan Singh led UPA on Pakistan front, Mir said that it was during Congress regime that several initiatives like cross border bus service and cross LoC trade was started and her father Mufti Sahib had all praise on these historical initiatives. Again the lowest number of ceasefire violations were witnessed during 10 years of UPA as compared to ongoing bloodshed, targeting of civilians and migrations on around 2500 cease fire incidents during Modi regime. Paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion, Mir said that forces who were always opposed to his philosophy and ideology are posing threat to the secular and social fabric of the nation. So long nation follows the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi for mutual co-existence with respect and religious freedom of people of all faiths, it would remain united and emerge stronger. Sham Lal Sharma lashed out at the PDP-BJP Govt for widening the wedge between regions by their wrong policies and deepening the feeling of neglect, discrimination and regional imbalance. He said that the BJP's surrender on the basic ideology for power has exposed it and their total silence in the Govt against the discriminatory policies has pushed state into chaos and unrest for various reasons. Raman Bhalla lambasted the State and Centre to deal with the situation in Kashmir and on borders and questioned the policy of the Centre Government. The convention was organized by DCC Udhampur and addressed amongst others by Faqir Nath, Krishan Chander Bhagat, Brij Mohan, Shakeel Shah, Shahnawaz, Ashok Gupta, Vinod Kjauria and Geeta Devi. Another function was held at PCC office Jammu where senior leaders paid tributes to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi. GA Mir presided over the function while Raman Bhalla, Ravinder Sharma Farooq Andrabi, Mohd Anwar Bhat, S S Channi, Pranav Shagotra and others were present.
