‘Parties with brute majorities have always plundered J&K'

SRINAGAR, Jan 8: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today said the statement of its senior leader Altaf Bukhari on coalition regimes may be reflecting his own personal opinion but it does not represent the party’s position on the subject.
In a statement, PDP vice president Abdul Rahman Veeri said stated that what its senior leader Altaf Bukhari has stated about the coalition politics in Jammu and Kashmir could be his personal opinion and not of the party. “PDP will go into elections with full force and seek mandate from the people. Altaf sahib’s statement on coalition regimes in the state is in no way the party line,” Veeri said.
The PDP vice-president added that whichever party in the state got a brute majority during elections in Jammu and Kashmir was responsible for the sell-out of the state resources. Especially between 1996 to 2002, we saw the introduction of things like POTA and Task Force, sell out of the power houses and making of Ikhwanis in the state.
“The reign of terror was unleashed upon the people by the National Conference only because there was no opposition to it. The government is not about numbers or about coalition or absolute majority, it is about who actually runs the government and the best example is of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed who in the year 2002 with just 16 members changed the discourse of Kashmir and carried along with him the leadership of both the countries,” Veeri said and added that numbers have always stung Kashmir.
