Omar govt a headless chicken: Mehbooba
Srinagar: Terming the Omar Abdullah-led
government in Jammu and Kashmir a "headless chicken", the
opposition PDP on Tuesday said its performance had gone from bad
to worse in the past three years.
Addressing a press conference here, PDP chief Mehbooba
Mufti alleged the government had defamed the Kashmiris and
tried to survive despite "disastrous performance".
"In last three years when there should have been
improvement in the state, governance is going from bad to
worse," she said.
"This government is running like a headless chicken,"
The opposition leader alleged the Omar government had
defamed Kashmiris during its three-year rule and tried to
survive despite its disastrous performance.
"This government has two achievements. One is how to
survive in spite of its disastrous performance. Another is
that they have defamed the people.
"In the first year, there was the Shopian tragedy and
they defamed the women of Kashmir. In 2010, they defamed the
children and called them drug-addicts," the PDP leader said.
Mehbooba said the government had failed to provide
electricity but had accused the people of electricity theft.
She termed the Chief Minister's announcement to cut-off
electricity to VIP areas including his residence a "gimmick".
"Three inches of tsunami has hit Kashmir (government)
and the whole system has been shattered."
"The CM announces that power should be cut-off to VIP
areas, why these gimmicks? Which VIP is here? All are in Jammu
and the only VIPs here are the CM and me and both of us have
generators and invertors," Mehbooba said.
The PDP president alleged the state government was
"insensitive" on the human rights front.
