Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Congress today accused ruling alliance partner National Conference of working against its interest in the Chenab Valley, comprising three districts of Kishtwar, Doda and Ramban.

"The National Conference workers are trying to mislead people. They are involved in spreading false messages on social networking sites and are blaming Congress leadership for false reasons. They are working against the interest of Congress," Joint Secretary Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee Salman Nizami said in a statement here.

"It was because of the efforts of former Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad that the state of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Chenab Valley, was development," he claimed.

"It has been during the tenure of Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad that the Chenab Valley got additional administrative units and he has been instrumental in all-round development of the region," Nizami claimed.

Nizami asked the party cadres to remain prepared for the Assembly polls, emphasising that they should highlight the efforts of the former CM for the development in the Chenab Valley region.

"We will sweep the elections in Chenab Valley and will fight the polls on development plank, unlike some parties which are only trying to gain votes by communalising the situation in the otherwise peaceful Chenab Valley region," he said.
