Tassaduq’s inclusion a cruel joke: NC

BANDIPORA: National Conference on Thursday said the PDP was guided by a singular goal of empowering a single family while lording over the complete ruination of the State and its resources. Addressing a Party Workers’ Convention at Bandipora in North Kashmir, National Conference Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani said the inclusion of the CM’s brother into the State Cabinet was a cruel joke with the people of the State who continue to suffer with each passing day due to the political and administrative failures of the PDP-BJP Government led by Mehbooba Mufti. “Ever since its inception, bereft of any ideological convictions PDP has been guided by singular goal of seeking political power. This party bartered its mandate and sold its conscience to the BJP in 2015 only to secure the Chief Minister’s chair for Late Mufti Sahab, followed by Mehbooba Mufti. Today PDP has carried on this trend of deceit for self-seeking ambitions by elevating a practically unknown entity to the State Cabinet after the gentleman, facing imminent defeat, literally ran away from the Anantnag Parliamentary Elections and then went on to seek a place of extra-constitutional power in the Civil Secretariat as the appointed head of the CM’s Grievance Cell”, the NC Provincial President said in his address. The NC Provincial President while questioning the qualifications and political experience of Tassaduq Mufti said his history of jumping from one opportunity to another spoke about his priorities and mindset.
