“Our government is a rudderless boat”: Darakhshan
At Bari Brahamana SDP President criticizes the government for ignoring the youth power of the state
33% increase in power tariff in just six months time quite insane: Darakhshan
“Youth power is the real power of any state or country but the youth in J&K are an abandoned lot. Government does not hesitate in mocking at their aspirations and dreams. We are deliberately rusting the potentialities and capabilities of the youth of the state,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing a public gathering at Bishna Road, Bari Brahamna on Sunday, the 22nd of April 2012. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi along with many top rung leaders of SDP were present on the occasion. The public rally was organized by the Youth SDP leader Vishal Choudhry. Many prominent businessmen and industrialists of the area were also present on the occasion. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi said that unemployment was eating up the youth power and the government doesn’t care. She said that government’s employment scheme was a mockery with educated youth and it has once again proved the inefficiency of our planners and the rulers. Dr Andrabi said that the state is already witnessing huge corruption and irregularities in self employment schemes and this approach has added to the problems of the youth. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi said that business sector in the state is completely ignored by the state government. “When other states take initiatives to boost private sector business accord subsidies of all kinds to industrial houses for lifting the state’s economy and creating job opportunities, our government is busy in scandal-mongering and cheap publicity. We have made all profitable sectors of our economy completely sick and have no plans at all for the upliftment of state’s economy or creation of new jobs,” said Dr Darakhshan. Dr Andrabi reacted to the second immediate increase in power tariff in the last six months in the state and termed this decision as ‘unfortunate’. She said that on o0ne hand common man will be in more trouble and the industrial sector will perish. She said it was quite insane to witness 33% increase in power tariff in half year’s time. She asked the government to withdraw this unjustified hike. She said that the coalition government is a rudderless boat and it does not have any vision for the state as was the case in earlier governments. Dr Andrabi said that SDP is becoming the platform for all genuine and conscious people of the state and this party is gradually turning into a silent revolution which is undoubtedly going to change things within the state for good. She expressed her satisfaction over the increasing membership from all districts of the state. She inducted many prominent businessmen and industrialists of the area into SDP fold. Those who joied SDP were Tripan Sharma,Manohar Lal,Naseer Ahmed,Laxmi Kumar,Mangal Dass,Vinay Singh and Sunil Singh.
