Excelsior Correspondent

KISHTWAR, Nov 7 : Minister of State for I&C and Home and NC candidate from Kishtwar Assembly constituency Sajjad Ahmad Kichloo today sought people’s support in scripting a bright social and economic future of far-flung regions of the State.
Kichloo filed his nomination papers on Wednesday for seeking a third straight term as MLA from Kishtwar constituency. He won the elections to the constituency previously in 2002 and 2008.
Kichloo stated that the Coalition Government, led by National Conference, has laid a strong edifice for making J&K a self-reliant state in high-priority sectors like power generation, tourism and industrial potential, infrastructure development and road connectivity, taking benefit from a number of Centrally-sponsored schemes. He said people will give a befitting reply to those who want to belittle the initiatives of the NC regime which led the State to journey of growth, empowerment of youth and economic prosperity.
Kichloo, who began his door-to-door campaign, immediately after filing his nomination papers, urged people to unite against those forces who want to pitch one community against another. He stated that as elected representative of Kishtwar constituency for the last 12 years, he has taken everybody along and cared for people of all religions, castes and cultures.
He asked people to vote intelligently and remain vigilant against forces which coerce and pitch them against one another. “There can be no development in atmosphere of hatred and insecurity. How can anyone think of empowering one community at the cost of alienating another,” he said and added that terrible consequences will be borne by the State if elements thinking on these lines are allowed to succeed.
While highlighting the achievements of the Omar Abdullah-led Government, Kichloo stated that Government took several measures to strengthen democratic institutions by bringing in greater transparency in their functioning. The Right to Information Act, Public Services Guarantee Act, establishment of State Vigilance Commission were steps taken to rid the State from the scourge of corruption, he added.
