Jammu: Expressing concern over state government apathy, Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Jammu and Kashmir is gripped with unprecedented crises due to governance deficit and failure of the dispensation to connect itself with the people.

"The state is gripped with unprecedented crises due to governance deficit. The government's apathy and increasing miseries to the common people are forcing the people to go on agitational path and this is reflected from the on-going agitation in Jammu on the demand of making Jammu Central University functional," senior PDP leaders said in a joint statement here tonight.

They said: "When Central University has already been sanctioned for Jammu region, there is no reason to adopt delay tactics to make it functional."

PDP leaders also took the Congress leaders to task for maintaining a silence on this issue.

"Congress leadership is equally responsible for the prevailing situation," they said, strongly condemning use of force on students agitating for making the University functional.

Signatories of the statement included former MP and senior Vice President, PDP, Trilok Singh Bajwa, former MLC Ved Mahajan, former MLA Shanti Devi, Hussain Ali Wafa, and Falail Singh.
