Jammu: Asserting that the recently held Lok Sabha elections should be an eye-opener for the ruling dispensation, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today lambasted National Conference (NC) and Congress for “exploiting” the people of Chenab Valley region for their “lust of power”.
“Recently held Lok Sabha elections should be an eye-opener for the ruling dispensation in the state.
NC and Congress are battering people of Chenab Valley region, which remained the source of their power in Jammu and Kashmir”, PDP MLC and Chief Spokesperson Naeem Akhtar said while addressing a day-long convention of PDP Youth wing in Doda, 180-kms from here today.
“It was first NC which exploited the people of this backward and hilly region for several decades. Later Congress came to power in the state by unprecedented support from this region but unfortunately both the parties treated the people of Chenab Valley not more than vote bank, betraying their trust for the lust of power and luxuries,” he said.
