He said Jammu and Kashmir could be one of the richest states given its natural resources in the shape of water, power generation capacity, minerals and horticulture, but due to NC’s selfish and opportunistic politics it has been converted into a begging bowl. “Nobody could call us a beggar state if NC had ever been honest and sincere in government,” he added.
Baig said this government has made the present and future of thousands of Kashmiri youth bleak by pushing them into alienation and then using repressive measures to create an impression of peace.
Baig said NC has historically survived on false promises and emotional exploitation by raising slogans like Plebiscite and Autonomy. Since these slogans have no buyers now in the changed circumstances they are trying to sell government jobs, administrative units and pipe dreams even though they are not able to pay salaries to the existing employees.
