SRINAGAR, May 20: Chairman of the Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP), Ghulam Nabi Azad, today promised the people of Anantnag East that he will work tirelessly to restore the jobs and land that have been taken away by the current Government.
Addressing during his road show, Azad emphasised the growing discontent among the people due to these critical issues.
He pointed out the severe impact of job loss on the community, highlighting that many families are struggling to secure a stable future for their children.
“Today, if a father takes a loan to ensure proper education for his child, he finds himself without a job. And even if he manages to get one, he has to compete with candidates from other states. This situation is fueling the rise in unemployment, and it’s concerning that no one is addressing this issue,” he said and assured them that under his leadership, the DPAP would prioritise job creation and the restoration of land rights, aiming to bring stability and prosperity back to the region.
Azad further stated that his primary focus is on development, contrasting the DPAP’s goals with the actions of other parties.
“Other parties have only fooled people with false promises. They didn’t speak up in Parliament when the current Government revoked Article 370 and Statehood. Their MPs were silent, and today they haven’t repeated those MPs because they know they couldn’t represent the people’s interests in Parliament,” Azad said.
Expressing deep concern over the rising drug problem among the youth, he criticised regional parties for their exploitation and assured that his party is committed to ending unemployment and reinstating the Roshni Scheme, which primarily benefited the poor.
Azad emphasised that the mountains and land of Jammu & Kashmir belong to its people, affirming their inherent right to these resources.
He highlighted that no other party opposed the order, showcasing his party’s dedication to protecting the rights of the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
“Now everyone has seen the reality of who is with them and who was with them,” he said and pointed out that first it was the NC and then the PDP who enjoyed power with the ruling party.
“I am Azad and I will remain Azad,” he affirmed.
Among others who were present during the event, included Adv Saleem Parray candidate, Salman Nizami Chief Spokesperson, Mir Altaf Provincial Gen Secretary, Distt President Ganderbal Jin Kaiser, LS candidate Sgr Amir Bhatt and others.
