Jammu: Alleging that "lopsided" development policies pursued by NC government was responsible for "underdevelopment" of some areas in J&K, PDP patron Mufti Mohammed Sayeed on Saturday said if voted to power, his party will establish a system for development of all regions.

"Our visionary polices will change the destiny of the residents of Jammu and Kashmir. We are seeking mandate of the people to establish a new system where every region and sub-region will be brought on the map of development and socio-economic growth," Mufti Mohammed Sayeed said while addressing an election rally in Mahore area of Reasi district.

"The lopsided developmental policies propagated by the successive NC-led governments are responsible for the underdevelopment and marginalisation of areas like Mahore," Mufti alleged.

He alleged that "backwardness" and "underdevelopment" in the mountainous belts of Reasi district were glaring examples of "wrong" development policies propagated by successive NC state governments.

Mufti claimed during the tenure of PDP government, a comprehensive development plan was implemented in this "neglected" region.

"It is high time that residents of this belt, irrespective of caste, creed, colour, religion or ethnicity, should jointly struggle to get basic amenities," he said.

"People know what their real issues are and they cannot be deceived anymore by the murky politics which politicians have been playing in this belt for many decades," he said.

Mufti said his party has emerged as a "strong" and "credible" voice of the people of Jammu and Kashmir because common masses "have faith" in the party.

"The pro-people agenda of the party is formulated by incorporating wishes and aspirations of all sections of the society and we never compromised with our agenda for attaining power," he said.
