Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir unit of CPI(M) Monday criticised the lack of coordination in the ruling coalition, saying the parties have "nothing in common except for the accusations and counter accusations" which is badly affecting the people.
"It is unfortunate the two coalition partners (National Conference and Congress) in the state have presently nothing common in between except for the accusations and counter accusations which has badly affected the state`s people," CPI(M) state secretary M Y Tarigami said addressing a rally at Town Hall in south Kashmir?s Kulgam district.
Tarigami expressed concern over the "administrative inertia" afflicting the developmental situation and said the "blame-game" between the two coalition partners is directly responsible for a lacklustre approach of the officers on the ground.
"What type of delivery, one can expect from the officers, when their ministers are levelling serious allegations against each other? The present dispensation was expected to deliver on the ground but its dismal performance gets reflected in every sector of life," he said.
The CPI(M) leader said the coalition partners have remained "unsuccessful to live up to the purpose and aims" set by the people through their mandate as almost all tall promises made by them have been left unaddressed during the last five years.
"Not only the development of infrastructure has come to a grinding halt during these years but the government has not been able to solve the basic problems of people," he alleged.
Earlier, CPI (M) activists held a protest demonstration in the town against "dismal functioning" of Public Distribution System (PDS), food security bill, hike in electricity fee, power situation and pending pension cases of widows, old age, orphans in the social welfare department.
The activists marched from Bus Stand to Town Hall Kulgam carrying placards, banners and shouted anti-government slogans.
