They change their language when they speak in Jammu. They are no better than chameleons,” senior PDP leader and MLC,Firdous Ahmed Tak, said while addressing the party workers in Banihal area of Ramban district.

The PDP leader held the Congress responsible for weakening the democratic institutions in Jammu and Kashmir. “This party has always played a dubious role that has caused an irreparable loss to the state. The increasing trust deficit among the people over democratic institutions and state government is the result of dirty politics played by the Congress party over the years,” Tak said.The MLC said the Congress was primarily responsible for eroding and weakening the constitutional provisions and special status granted to the state. “Congress in league with National Conference trampled the unique identity of the state and did systematic erosion of J&K’s special status and diluted all Constitutional provisions to enjoy the powers,” senior PDP leader said, adding “Congress has been the mother of almost all problems confronting J&K in present time”.
