PDP’s firm policy compelled BJP to run away from coalition: Hanjura
Srinagar, Jul 11: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday held a high level meeting of its cadres in Srinagar, asking them to speed up their activities and maintain close coordination between party workers, activists and supporters.
The meeting chaired by party vice President Abdul Rahman Veeri witnessed the participation of General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura, State Secretary Aseya Naqash, District President Srinagar Mohammad Khurshid Alam, Mohammad Ashraf Mir, Abdul Qayoom Wani, Noor Mohammad Sheikh and several others.
Speaking on the occasion, Veeri expressed concern over the development deficit being witnessed in Srinagar with majority of the developmental projects gone into limbo. According to the PDP Vice President, people of Srinagar have been exposed to severe hardships due to the lack of basic amenities with mounting crises of water and bad roads leaving the city inhabitants in lurch.
He said majority of the roads in Srinagar have been left unattended with macadamisation being given a least priority. According to Veeri the absence of developmental activities has created a crisis like situation on ground and need of the hour is to stand up and raise issues pertaining to common man and get them resolved on priority.
Party General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura in his address said the best model for the good governance is the period between 2002 and 2005 and that after the 2014 polls the PDP didn’t get a clear mandate and out of the compulsion had to join hands with the BJP. Hanjura said that PDP remained consistently firm on its agenda which was included in agenda of alliance and that was the reason the BJP had to run away from coalition. He said that party’s firm belief on its principles led the BJP to turn its back and being in the government PDP kept insisting for the withdrawal of the FIRs, amnesty for the stone pelters, and return of the power projects from the NHPC.
