Senior functionaries of the party including chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma, general secretary Incharge District Jammu Yogesh Sawhney, general secretary PCC Manmohan Singh, president PCC Minority Deptartment Jammu province Gajan Singh, secretary PCC Sanjeev Panda, Rajesh Sadhotra and several other prominent leaders were present.

Yogesh Sawhney described Dr Manmohan Singh as one of greatest leaders of India who had led the nation to new heights as Finance Minister and then Prime Minister. He said that the BJP Government should take advice from Manmohan Singh to stabilize economy and create job opportunities.
