Jammu: Congress has accused the PDP-BJP government here of polarising sentiments of voters in the state by entering a pre-poll understanding to secure a winning mandate.
“The two parties had a hidden understanding before the election to polarise the sentiments of people of Kashmir and Jammu regions as a part of their strategy in which they succeeded, as the people could not understand the politics of deception for the sake of electoral gains,” JKPCC Chief Ghulam Ahmed Mir said yesterday.
Addressing a day-long convention of Congress workers in Rajouri district, Mir said that the delay in the formation of the government after declaration of results was only to cover up their pre-poll understanding and the common minimum programme was an eye wash to hoodwink the people of the state.
He also criticised both the central and state government for failing to procure relief funds of Rs 44,000 crore for people affected by the floods.
The PCC Chief further said that Congress would continue to raise the issues of people both inside and outside the legislation and the parliament.
He told party workers that Congress would never indulge in divisive and communal slogans, since the party has a national duty to maintain a secular fabric and to act as a unifying force for which their great leaders gave supreme sacrifices.
