Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Friday asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to explain how the son of PDP leader and Vice President Mohammad Sartaj Madni, figured in the list of selected Executive Officers for the Jammu and Kashmir Khadi and Village Board.
NC Spokesperson Junaid Mattu said the present government has taken the patience of unemployed youth for granted and should not try to portray this brazen nepotism as a miraculous coincidence.
“PDP’s tall rhetoric has fallen flat on its face and this recent list of the JKVIB is another proof of PDP’s insidious and nepotistic style of politics. The list includes not only the son of PDP Vice President, Syed Aroot Madni figures in the list with roll number 703982 issued by JKVIB and PDP General Secretary Peerzada Mansoor’s nephew, Peer Kashif Hussain figures at serial number 2 at the waiting list with roll number 101830. Most of the people figuring in the final list issued by KVIB are either child of close associates of PDP leaders or have direct patronage from the powers that be. The Chief Minister is directly culpable for this open loot she has authorized in the State. The institutions of the State have been ravaged by the PDP and corruption has been institutionalized by the Chief Minister and her family members,” the NC State Spokesperson said.
National conference Demanded an immediate independent probe into the selection list issued by the JKVIB, the NC State Spokesperson said this was a cruel joke with the youth of the State who are reeling under extraordinary unemployment and hopelessness while children of PDP leaders are being adjusted in government departments and boards through control and open corruption.
“Is this why the State Government has placed its leaders as VCs of these boards? So that they could settle their children in these institutions? What is the message you are conveying out to our youth?” he questioned.
