STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: People’s Conference Senior Vice President and former Minister, Abdul Gani Vakil while emphasising on the anti-corruption mechanism on Thursday said that if his party comes to power, it would take concrete steps to root out corruption in the State including, activating, mobilising and strengthening of the State Accountability Commission. Addressing a series of public meeting in Rafiabad villages including Kutru Naribal, Balhama, Maqboolabad, Nowgam Targpora and Ladoora, Vakil said that People’s Democratic Party and National Conference had crippled the State Accountability Commission during their regimes because there are several cases registered with the commission against most of their party leaders. Vakil termed ridiculous the National Conference’s claim that it will end corruption in the State, once it comes to power but how can they end corruption when the party’s Patron, Farooq Abdullah was involved in 115 crore cricket scam and was currently out on bail. He lambasted upon the Peoples Democratic Party and National Conference for reducing Article 370 to a hallow as these parties together made 42 amendments to facilitate erosion of the special position of the State. “The leaders of these parties are now shedding crocodile tears but public has understood their politics of mockery and won’t let these political parties to befool them again,” he said. PC leader, Khursheed Ahmad also spoke during the meeting and criticised the National Conference in strongest terms, saying people are facing terrible situation due to wrong political decisions at crucial times. He said that time has come for the people to reject National Conference in the upcoming Assembly elections by denying vote to the party so that they can’t befool public again and again.
