Speaking to reporters in Srinagar, Madhav charged National Conference and PDP with trying to confine the power around their families and not allowing decentralization and devolution of powers to the gross-root level by trying to fail democratic process through their boycott calls.

“Article 35-A is just an excuse for the two major parties (the NC and PDP). In fact, they are trying to fail the democratic process. Only few days back, these two parties contested elections in Kargil (for the Hill Council),” he pointed out.

Asserting that the Government and the BJP want democracy to be restored at the gross-root level by giving powers right up to the village level to form their own plans of development, Madhav charged the two parties (NC and Congress) with trying to stick to “family rule and politics” and not allowing decentralization and devolution of powers to the people.
