Congress has always compromised with its core issues to remain in power. Talking with the media persons at Dr. Hina Bhat office, candidate from Vidhan Sabha Amirakadal, the Bharatiya Janata Party's only woman candidate in the Kashmir Valley, National Secretary BJP Kisan Morcha and Former Prabhari Jammu and Kashmir Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal said that the Congress party is equally responsible as National Conference for lack of development in Jammu and Kashmir during their 6 years rule and it should apologise to the people of the state for being part of such a Government. Grewal said that the Congress was part of the Government and supported NC for six years and is therefore equally responsible for the lack of development in the state. He was reacting to a statement of former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Gulam Nabi Azad that Omar Abdullah is responsible for not carrying forward the development agenda started by Congress-led coalition government in 2005 in Jammu and Kashmir.
Grewal said that Congress should apologise to the people of the state for being a part of the government in which the development agenda was not carried forward, Grewal questioned why they he did not point out lack of development when his party was part of the Government. If Omar Abdullah was not carrying forward the development agenda of the state, Congress members should have resigned and withdrawn the support to the Government. Grewal alleged that Congress has always compromised with its core issues to remain in power. He said that Congress always compromised with their core issues to remain in power and likes to sit in the lap of either NC or PDP to be part of the Government.
Grewal said that Congress shared power with PDP and NC for the past 12 years and did nothing for the welfare of the people and now they are blaming Omar Abdullah for slow Development in the State. He said but the matter of fact is that NC or PDP wouldn't have done anything without the help and support of Congress. Congress is equally culpable for the miseries of the vast majority of the people. It's well known in the state that while on a campaign trail in border belt of Rajouri district, Azad today said that " Young and incumbent Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has failed to carry forward the developmental agenda started by Congress led coalition Government in 2005" in Jammu and Kashmir state.
