SRINAGAR, Oct 24: Scores of political workers and functionaries from North Kashmir’s Bandipora today joined Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference in presence of Party Chairman Sajad Gani Lone and others.
In a statement issued here, the party spokesman said prominent political activist Mushtaq Ahmed along with 60 workers and 3 Panches- Mema Begum, Abdul Jabbar and Abdul Rashid from Bandipora joined JKPC.
Welcoming them in the fold, Sajad Gani Lone expressed confidence that the joining of the ground level workers from across the valley reflects party growing acceptability among an overwhelming section of the common masses.
“People’s Conference is the only political party wherein there is no disparity of caste, creed and status within the party. The leaders and workers are equally respected and involved in the decision making process. There is no high command culture anywhere within our ranks. History is testament to the fact that our doors have always remained open for those who yearn for change and are keen to contribute in scripting a new dawn of hope and prosperity”, he added.
“We will continue to tirelessly strive to work for the betterment of the people. It is heartening to see people from across the valley reposing their faith and trust in the Peoples Conference to take them out of the current impasse,” he said.
He expressed hope that the entry of the political functionaries will make the party stronger to fight with the forces that are inimical to equality and representation of the unrepresented.
Senior party leader, Nizamudin Bhat said that the new entrants will find a dignified platform for themselves wherein they will work for the betterment of the society and become a powerful voice of the voiceless.
