Panches group to vote against coalition candidates
Govt deceived us, our turn to teach them a lesson: JKPRM
SRINAGAR, Nov 19: The Jammu and Kashmir Panchayati Raj Movement (JKPRM) has asked Panches and Sarpanches to vote against the NC-Congress coalition candidates in the elections to four seats of Legislative Council.

Addressing a press conference here today, Shahnawaz Sultan, Convener JKPRM said that the Panchayat Raj Movement has decided to launch an anti government campaign in whole state especially in Kashmir division. “We appeal all Sarpanches and Panches not to cast vote in favour of government candidates as the government failed to implement Jammu and Kashmir Panchayati Raj Act 1989 in toto and bring amendments for establishment of genuine three tier Panchayati Raj system in the state,” Sultan said.

He added: “We have unanimously decided to cast our votes against the candidates of NC and Congress to show the coalition government power of the voters. Coalition partners have deceived us again and again and it is our turn to teach them a lesson.”

Sultan said that the group had left open the option, of voting for the candidates of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any other party, to the Panches and Sarpanches.

“Coalition partners in government have fielded candidates which have been rejected by the people in last elections and they have not got more than 1500 votes. The coalition government is adept at changing colors. In the morning Chief Minister says one thing and in the evening he contradicts his earlier statement,” he added.

He said that defeating the candidates of the NC and Congress candidates was their motive. “If the government fails to fulfill its promises, such a campaign will be launched against the NC and Congress during 2014 state legislative elections as well. Congress created drama on the Panchayat empowerment issue while NC is reluctant to empower us,” he said.

Sultan said that issuing the notification for BDC elections was also a part of that drama.

He said that government had insulted the Panchayat members in the society and rendered them vulnerable. “We are having sleepless nights due to the government’s indifference. No one in India is a bigger threat to us,” he added.

JKPRM convener said that PDP’s proposed bill in the autumn session of the legislative session gave PRI’s a hope of empowerment of the Panchayat institutions. “The bill was a great hope for us but unfortunately the bill was not introduced,” he said.

Sultan said that the government was adopting a divide and rule policy against them. “Last time we got permission from authorities to hold a meeting of PRIs in Anantnag but on the scheduled day police had cordoned off the venue and didn’t allow us hold the meeting,” said Sultan. “We were treated as if Geelani was going to organise the seminar,” he added.
