Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) president and MLA Khansahib Hakim Mohammad Yasin Thursday said that Government of India’s categorical refusal to return the hydle power projects from the NHPC to J&K has once again exposed the PDP-BJP government’s so-called ‘Agenda of Alliance’.
While reacting to Union Power Minister RK Singh’s statement that 390-MW Dulhasti and 4890-MW Uri-I hydropower projects can’t be transfered from the NHPC to J&K Government, he said in a statement, “The PDP leadership used to flaunt that in their ‘Agenda of Alliance’ the BJP-led Center Government has agreed to explore modalities for transfer of hydropower projects from the NHPC to J&K, secure a share in profits of the NHPC from its projects in the state and revise all royalty agreements between the state and the NHPC. However, time and again, these claims have been exposed by the Center.”
“Earlier, Centre made it clear that it was in no mood to have any sort of dialogue with separatists in Kashmir which PDP claimed was in its “AoA.” It is good that they make it clear that ‘AoA is nothing more than a piece of paper. People of Kashmiri can’t be kept in dark further as they must have realised now how they were being befooled in the name of ‘AoA’ in the last more than two and half years. Now it is clear that for what this so-called ‘AoA’ was. It was an agenda for running the government only,” he said.
“PDP used to claim that ‘AoA’ is a sacred document and BJP has accepted in the document that it won’t abrogate Article 370. But now everyone knows what BJP’s stand is. Both PDP and BJP have been totally exposed that they have inherent contradictions,” Hakim Yasin added.
The MLA Khansahib also lashed out at the PDP-BJP government over its failure in curbing braid chopping incidents saying it has once again exposed that this government is incompetent.
“This government has failed on all fronts. Corruption, nepotism, favouritism order of the day and unemployment has reached to alarming proportions. Government is only busy in making statements and assurances. The latest issue of braid chopping in which the dignity of our daughters, sisters and mothers is being compromised, is another blot on the face of this government. It has left people across Kashmir in a state of fear and terror,” the PDF chief added.
