Jammu, Sep 28 (UNI) Blaming Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Congress, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) today alleged that the coalition government had failed to give sustainable governance to the people in Jammu and Kashmir.
''Wrong policies of coalition government were responsible for plight of people in Jammu and Kashmir,'' BSP national general secretary and MLC Narinder Kashyap said, while addressing 'Janhit Chetna Andolan' here.
Mr Kashyap, who is also in charge of Punjab and J &K affairs, said the infighting between the coalition partners resulted in a mess in Jammu and Kashmir.
''All parties including Congress, National Conference (NC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other regional parties were responsible for disturbing situation in the state over Amaranth land row as they tried to politicise the issue to generate vote bank,'' the BSP leader added.
He said Congress was responsible for Jammu agitation and added that other mainstream political parties are exploiting the situation to own 'vested interests', only to attain power.
''Successive governments in Jammu and Kashmir, were always proved to be anti-people as they did not promoted employment, development, not implemented Mandal Commission Report and also not provided reservation to the backward classes,'' Mr. Kashyap added.
'Social Engineering' would be the trump card for BSP during the upcoming Assembly and Parliamentary elections and the party has decided to contest on all the 87 Assembly segments in Jammu and Kashmir.
We are expecting outstanding results during Assembly elections as many leaders have started following Mayawati's path and the party is hopeful of providing an alternate to the people in Jammu and Kashmir and at the Centre as well,'' he asserted.
Mr Kashyap also condemned the UPA-led Central Government for failing to combat rising militancy.
