NC has no agenda, lost credibility: Mehbooba
Pattan, Baramulla, Apr 17 (UNI) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti today launched a scathing attack on the National Conference (NC), saying the main opposition party had no agenda, lost credibility and was trying to mislead the people.
Addressing several election meetings in this constituency, she said NC chief patron Farooq Abdullah and president Omar Abdullah have been levelling baseless allegations against her.
''On the one hand, Dr Abdullah levels baseless allegations against me and on the other the NC President says that I speak New Delhi's language,'' the PDP Chief added.
Ms Mufti urged the voters to exercise their franchise in favour of the PDP on the basis of its performance and cautioned them to be vigilant about the designs of the NC and other ''publically rejected'' forces hell-bent upon spreading hatred among the people.
The NC had no agenda, lost its credibility and was trying to mislead the people, she said.
Ms Mufti said a positive awareness was inculcated among the masses with strenuous efforts of the PDP-led coalition government and as such these forces would not be allowed to exploit the people.
''Sensing that the ground is slipping below their feet due to the PDP's good performance and popularity, the vested elements are hell- bent upon spreading the malicious campaign against us,'' she added.
The PDP Chief said the people would teach the rejected forces yet another lesson by defeating them in the coming by-elections.
A massive response and attendence in the PDP's election rallies was a proof and endorsement of its policies and agenda, she added.
Highlighting the PDP's achievements, Ms Mufti said the Jhelum Valley Road was opened within one year of launching the campaign by her party.
Opening of five points along the Line of Control (LoC) was another milestone in this historic journey, she said, adding the PDP would continue with its efforts to press for opening of all routes to boost economic and trade ties between the divided Kashmir.
The PDP President said due to the efforts her party the Centre held dialogue with all shades of opinion. ''Nobody is untouchable now either in Islamabad or New Delhi, she added.
