State Congress President, G A Mir has accused Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and her coalition government of totally failing to create a conducive atmosphere for the by-elections in Srinagar parliamentary constituency.Talking to KNS over phone, Mir said, “Electronic voting machines were placed in bunker vehicles but not in polling stations only to create a fearful atmosphere on the day of polling in Srinagar parliamentary constituency and today when re-poll was conducted t 38 polling stations in Budgam district.”He said that unfortunately the government put on job its whole law enforcement machinery for the conduct of re-poll but the turnout shows the failure of the government and is yet another blow to Mehbooba government.Alleging that the heavy deployments were out at the command and control of the police officers of the rank of SSPs in each and every village, Mir said, “Let Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti explain that why her claim of having the support of 95 per cent of population and putting the percentage of trouble shooters at five per cent is proving wrong, the outcome shows that 95 per cent of the people have turned against the government and five per cent who have voted at polling stations also didn’t vote for the reasons of sympathy with PDP led coalition government. The situation demands that CM should accept moral responsibility for losing the public support and quit as CM immediately.” (KNS)
