Mr Bhalla disclosed that Congress made development as a narrative and discourses in the State, and dispersed the fruits of development beyond the limitations, adding that Congress had vision of a vibrant, progressive and united Jammu and Kashmir.
He asked the people to bring back the Congress to power to carry out the development in every nook and corner of the three regions of the State.

Some of the prominent persons also spoke on the occasion and assured wholehearted support to Raman Bhalla as Congress party candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency in the forthcoming assembly elections.
