Srinagar: The ruling National Conference was
trying to divert people`s attention from "bad governance" by
raking up the issue of partial revocation of Armed Forces
(Special Powers) Act, National Panthers Party on Sunday alleged.
"The Abdullahs want to divert the attention of people by
making statements about the AFSPA," NPP chief Bhim Singh told
reporters here, in a reference to Chief Minister Omar Abdullah
and his father and Union Minister Farooq Abdullah.
He said the issue of unemployment was a major concern in
Jammu and Kashmir and the state government has failed to
address this problem.
The Panthers Party chief, who recently demanded a CBI
inquiry into the death of National Conference worker Syed
Mohammad Yousuf, alleged that the state government has gone
"bankrupt, both financially and mentally".
