Jammu: Refuting allegations of Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) that crime rate has increased
in Jammu region, ruling National Conference (NC) today asked
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti to abstain from playing "divisive
politics".

Taking strong exception to Mufti`s recent statement
that crime rate has increased in Jammu region since the
coalition government of NC and Congress took over, senior NC
leader and MLC Ajay Sadhotra termed the charge as "baseless,
concocted and false with a design to misinform the people of
the region".

The fact of the matter is that crime rate in the
state, especially in Jammu region, has declined by about
three times as compared to previous years since Omar Abdullah
took over as the Chief Minister of the state, Sadhotra told
reporters here.

Cases of militancy has also come down by 30 per cent
in the state, he added.
