Hitting out at the Omar Abdullah government for wasting nearly 6 years, opposition PDP today said instead of giving a report card of its achievements, NC was making more promises.
"Omar has wasted nearly 6 years of his rule in J&K.

Instead of making fresh announcements, the chief minster should have been giving the report card of his achievements," PDP patron Mufti Mohammed Sayeed said, addressing a function where JD(U)'s Jammu unit offered to support Yashpal Sharma, PDP candidate from Jammu for the Lok Sabha elections.

Sayeed said there was a clear "wave of anger against the ruling (NC-Congress) coalition" in the state, which was making announcements in panic.

"His (Omar's) inability to give an account of his performance is understandable as this government has only scams, scandals, misgovernance and corruption to its credit," he said.

The NC-led government is visionless in its approach and that is why it has not been able to work for the benefit of people, he said, taking aim at NC's manifesto ahead of the 2008 assembly elections.

Sayeed picked holes in that manifesto, saying the party failed to fulfill its promises especially regarding autonomy to the state and removal of AFSPA, and was trying to fool the people again. 

Sayeed also hit out at the Chief Minister over his "revelation" about "resignation" over the 2002 Gujarat riots and said Omar could have resigned from the state government on a number of occasions, including in 2009, in the wake of Shopian double rape and murder case, in 2010, when hundreds of youth were gunned down by his forces, and even when Afzal Guru was hanged to death in 2013.

"By recalling an imaginary resignation more than a decade back Omar Abdullah is bringing only into sharper focus the unprincipled politics that NC has been pursuing at tremendous cost of the state," he said.

If NC had any conscience left, they could had easily walked out of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government like Ram Vilas Paswan did at that time, but they preferred to stick to chair, which has always been dear to them, he charged.
