‘Both boom hatred politics’; PDP, BJP two faces of same coin: Omar

‘PDP wants power by hook or crook’

By Ajmer Alam Wani

DARHAL (RAJOURI): Describing PDP and BJP two faces of same coin, Chief
Minister, Omar Abdullah Thursday said that their only agenda is to
divide people on emotional grounds, polarize the society and boom
hatred to grab power. Addressing a well-attended public gathering at
Darhal in Rajouri District of Jammu Division, this afternoon, the
Chief Minister said that PDP never tried to create working relation
with his government for the larger interests of the State and its

“When in 2002 Mufti Mohammad Sayeed took over as the Chief Minister of
the State, I went to him to congratulate and assure full support of my
party, the then opposition party, for the welfare of the State and
upliftment of people. Yet again in 2008 when I became the Chief
Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, I, without waiting for receiving any
word from Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, went to him to convey that politics
apart we should together pull the State out of economic mess,
unemployment and other issues.

Though, he appreciated my intensions and agreed with me in this
regard, yet instead of moving a step in this direction, he and his
party started unabated false propaganda against me and my government”,
he said adding that PDP has only agenda of removing me from the chair
of Chief Ministership by hook or crook and grabbing power for vested

The Chief Minister also revealed that a number of legislators of PDP
and others contacted him during the tenure of PDP in power and offered
him their support to dislodge Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. “But I told them
that neither I nor my party (National Conference) believes in this
kind of political games. We do principle based politics and take on
our political opponents in the open political arena rather than
indulging in any conspiracy for getting power”, he added.

“The leadership of PDP goes to the people and tells them that they do
not want power. What a lie they speak?”, he said and wondered how
could PDP leadership befool the people on this count when everyone is
aware of the frustration of this party to be in power. He said 2010
law and order situation in the state gives full account of PDP
struggle to remove Omar Abdullah from the Chief Ministership and sit
on the chair of power in the State.

Omar Abdullah said that PDP leadership did not leave even a stone
unturned to convince the Prime Minister of India and other leadership
in New Delhi in 2010 that Omar Abdullah is the only stumbling block
and if he is removed from chair and power given to PDP everything will
be OK. He said, he has seen the power hungry people but not of that
dangerous degree and as hungry as PDP leadership. He said ‘the guilty
conscience needs no accuser’ so, PDP’s pretension of not wanting power
simply points towards the fact that this Party’s politics is only for

Referring to the recent ‘medical seat’ scam unearthed by his
government and putting the top accuser of the scam behind bars for his
unscrupulous, dishonest and heinous crime against the society and the
students, the Chief Minister said that instead of appreciating the
government’s stern action PDP leadership has started a negative
propaganda against him and the government and have forgotten their
hatching up of the matter of a similar nature in 2004. “PDP set aside
Crime Branch report against a particular person accused of selling the
medical seats and promoted that person to the higher post”, he said.

Omar Abdullah said that the difference lies here when you are aware of
the crime of a person and hatch it up for vested interests and instead
of handing over him a severe punishment give him promotion to the
higher post as was done by the PDP leadership. “As soon as my
government unearthed the ‘medical seat scam’, we removed the officer
and handed over him to police”, he said.

The Chief Minister said that BJP is equally responsible for peace
disturbance, creation of tension between various sections and regions
of the State and said that BJP leaders are in search of occasions to
flair-up communal tension to take political advantage.

The Chief Minister compared PDP and BJP parties with National
Conference and said that binding the bonds of love between various
sections of the society, solidifying the ties between various regions
and sub-regions of the society and working for equitable and inclusive
development of the State constitute the pre-amble of the Constitution
of National Conference. “History is testimony to the sacrifices and
struggle of National Conference for upholding the secular credentials
of Jammu and Kashmir, nurturing the solidarity between various regions
and strengthening the love bonds between various sections of the
society”, he said adding that this has made National Conference the
party of people all over the State and its popularity is visible in
every nook and corner of Jammu and Kashmir.

On the development of Darhal, Omar Abdullah said that the
non-performance of the present MLA of this area has hit the
development of this area to a greater extent. “While all other
Assembly Constituencies whether represented by opposition or coalition
partners have witnessed tremendous development process for the
endeavour and working of the MLAs, Darhal has unfortunately not
witnessed the similar pace on works, despite lot of measures taken by
the government”, he said and added that he would ask the District
Development Commissioner, Rajouri to immediately submit a
comprehensive report of various projects in Darhal Assembly
Constituency requiring funds to be completed within next some months.
“Efforts will be made to ensure adequate funds for these projects so
that benefits accrue to the people as soon as possible”, he said
adding that he will ask the Planning and Development Department to
look into this aspect favourably.

The Chief Minister appreciated the people for their support to him in
strengthening the law and order situation and said that peace is
essentially important to achieve the development goals. He appealed to
people to play their important role in the strengthening of the
communal harmony and peaceful atmosphere in the State.VThe public
meeting was also addressed by Minister for Forests, Mian Altaf Ahmad
and Legislator and Provincial President NC, Jammu, Devender Singh
