JAMMU, Feb 3: Observing that change is imminent in Jammu and Kashmir, former Deputy Chief Minister and senior leader of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Muzaffar Hussain Beigh today urged youth and women to lead the movement for change in 2014.
Addressing one-day convention of party card holders of Gandhi Nagar Assembly segment here this afternoon, Mr Beigh said that common masses in general and youth and women in particular have suffered immensely under the present dispensation that has become a symbol of political chaos, mis-governance, rampant corruption, administrative anarchy and denial of justice.
“Youth and women have to lead the movement for change in Jammu and Kashmir because they are worst suffering due to wrong policies of present regime”, he added.
Cautioning people against nefarious designs of National Conference, Beigh said that NC leadership has always propagated divisive policies to create division among people on regional, ethnic and communal lines. He regretted that to remain in power, NC leadership has always pursued the divide and rule policy and hoodwinked the gullible masses of the State by exploiting their sentiments. He observed that except exploiting sentiments of the people to remain in power, the successive NC regimes have done nothing for the upliftment and betterment of the people.
Terming the present dispensation as the biggest misfortune for the people of State, former Deputy Chief Minister observed that present Government has only brought rampant corruption and administrative anarchy and denial of human rights.
Calling upon party workers to spread message of PDP in every nook and corner of the State, he said that people of Jammu and Kashmir are looking towards PDP to get them rid of the present worst ever regime.
“We have been receiving overwhelming response of the people of all the three regions of the State “, he said and assured that gathering regional aspirations of all regions and sub-regions would be fulfilled by the PDP.
Pointing towards the problems of 1947 refugees Poonch and Muzaffarabad, Mr Beigh assured the gathering that his party would vociferously take up the issue of these refugees and demanded one time settlement of the problems of the refugees.
