“Criticism by governor is proof of PDP-BJP government’s failure on all fronts”


Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that the criticism by Governor NN Vohra conclusively proved that the PDP-BJP government led by Mehbooba Mufti had failed on “all fronts.”

Abdullah said that the “open criticism of the coalition government by the Governor was proof of its failure on all fronts.”

The National Conference leader was referring to Governor Vohra’s statement during a commemoration function on Monday in honour of late Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed.

Vohra had said that the “state faces many problems, some of our own doing and some of others’ contributions” adding that the Jammu and Kashmir government must improve its performance.

“We don’t seem to be excessively bothered about the issues faced by the public. J&K is confronting the problems of varied nature, some are our own making, some beyond our control,” he said, adding that these “so-called domestic and the non-domestic factors created an environment which pulls us back.”

“The entire polity, the entire public service of the state and the people must work closely to protect the youth and students,” he said, and regretted that “we have not been able to do so.”

“I regret to say so,” he was quoted by Greater Kashmir.

Abdullah said that the Governor’s statement was an “indictment” against the PDP-BJP collation government, proving its failure on all fronts, reported IANS.

He said the situation in the state had drastically deteriorated since the PDP-BJP government assumed power.
