Says post Aug 05 2019 situation proved NC right
Poonch, May 14: National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah on Saturday questioned the incumbent government on its normalcy claims saying that the situation on ground has vindicated his party's stand on August 05, 2019 decisions.
Omar said this while addressing a public gathering at Krishan Chander Park Poonch today. He commenced his week-long Pir Panjal tour from today.
Omar said that during his stint as the chief Minister of the J&K state, the funds allocated from the center to the state were judiciously allocated for public infrastructure and utility services in every part of the state without any discrimination. But the good work in terms of infrastructure augmentation, he stated, went unnoticed because of the failure of the party to bang a drum about it.
“Today no one can say that after 05 Aug, their lives became any better. Yes, people associated with BJP were given security, contracts, houses and security cover. But a common man out there be it a Hindu, Sikh, Muslim or a Buddhist, if asked whether the decisions benefited them, they won't be able to answer the question,” he said.
“It was told that the August 5, 2019 decisions will end separatism in Kashmir. But has it? There are still people who want to walk the wrong path and pick up weapons. It was said that regional PAGD parties are a major hurdle in the development of J&K. Where is that development now?”
