MENDHAR, May 20: The just-concluded week-long visit of party leader and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in Pir Panjal area as a great success because an impressive show of strength was the key feature besides he held healthy interactions with the people including the committed members of the party.
This was stated by Javed Rana, president Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) Pirpanjal Zone while addressing a meeting of party cadre in Mendhar.
The senior NC leader said that the week-long tour of Omar Abdullah in Pir Panjal area has boosted the morale of party cadre. “People of Pir Panjal are happy with the visit of Omar Abdullah as the party leader has assured them that their aspirations will be fulfilled by the party soon after coming to power”, he said.
Raising serious concern over the problems being faced by the general public, Rana said that more than two and a half years have passed in waiting for restoration of statehood status. Prime Minister Modi on the floor of the House in August 2019 promised to return the statehood to the people of Jammu and Kashmir soon but till date nothing has been done in this regard, he said.
Rana said that the BJP Government at the Centre is going back on all its promises made with the people of J&K. With the passage of time, all the dreams and promises shown for development, employment and restoration of peace on the reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir are getting shattered. He said that BJP is only trying to befool the people by claiming that abrogation of 370 is a great step that has paved way for development and employment removing all the hurdles.
“Despite being directly under the Centre, development, employment and prosperity at the grassroots level is not visible anywhere in the state. The public has got nothing except toll plazas, liquor shops, inflation and unemployment,” Rana said.
He asked people to strengthen the National Conference as only this party can fulfill the aspirations of people of both the gions of Jammu and Kashmir.
