JAMMU, Feb 4: Senior vice-president of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sartaj Madni today said that youth of Jammu and Kashmir are real custodian of the State and core inspiration of the PDP. He appealed youth to play a vital role as future custodians of the State and not to get deterred by the actions of few demagogues.
Addressing a youth convention at PDP head office, wherein 200 youth from Reasi joined the party, Madni said youth in Jammu and Kashmir could act as the greater inspiration for the Government and the PDP to secure a better future for the State. “It is youth of the State who give the political leadership a temper of will, quality of imagination, vigour of emotions, a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity and an appetite of hard work over love of ease. The PDP was founded with the idea to secure a prosperous future for the young generation which was crushed by the uncertain era of bloodshed and mayhem,” he said.
PDP general secretary Ved Mahajan, while addressing the youth asked them to work hard ahead for the strengthening of PDP at the grassroots. “There is no resting for any of us till we redeem our pledge in full and realise the dream of late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed who strived for the prosperous future of the State,” Mahajan said.
Peerzada Mansoor Hussain and Mehboob Iqbal also addressed the youth and asked them to work earnestly to strengthen the social, economic and political institutions of the State which will ensure justice and fullness of life to every single person of Jammu and Kashmir.
The convention was organized by Youth District president Abid Ajaz. Youth vice president Varinder Sonu, Youth general secretary Umar Malik, senior Youth leaders Mohsin Qayoom, Parvez Wafa and Dr Imtozaj.
