Excelsior Correspondent
MENDHAR, May 28: President Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) Pir Panjal Zone, Javed Rana  has said that India cannot attain the target of becoming the ‘Vishwa Guru’ without following the slogan of ‘Hindu Muslim Sikh Ittihad ’ in letter and spirit.
Addressing a public meeting here today, the senior NC leader asserted that in order to become a world leader, it is inevitable to make the nation strong and a vibrant democracy first. He said that in this direction, the unity among various communities especially, the Hindus, Muslims and the Sikhs is must. Without naming any party, he said that it is quite unfortunate that communal politics is being played today for winning elections thus creating communal divide among the people. He said that though it may satiate the vested interests of the party adopting this tool, but it will ultimately weaken or even lead to disintegration.
Rana said Pir Panjal has been victimized by the vindictive politics of the incumbent government, due to which this region is facing discrimination. As a result of this discrimination, the region has further suffered in terms of development. He said the region suffered a lot due to partition but the BJP has further plunged this region and its people into utter backwardness.
The former Legislator asserted that the entire Pir Panjal area is facing neglect and has been left on the mercy of God. He expressed great disappointment against the government for not paying any attention towards this backward region, situated closer to the LoC.
Rana asserted that such stance of those in governance will only create fissions in the society which does not augur well with democratic health of Jammu and Kashmir. He said there is dire need to strengthen the democracy in J&K by holding Assembly elections at the earliest.
The senior NC leader asserted that the slogan of ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh Ittihad- Zindabad’ be made the fundamental principle to run this nation so that democracy which stands endangered today, thrives across the nation.
