Shaheen urges youth to become agents of change

BANIHAL, Mar 11:  Envisioning crucial role for National Conference in steering out Jammu and Kashmir from morass created by  PDP-BJP alliance,  NC district president Sajjad Shaheen  today said the people feel dejected and let down by abject failure of the Government on every front.
While addressing a youth convention organised by Party’s Youth wing  of Panchayat Chaknarwah in Banihal constituency, Shaheen called upon the youth to become agents of change and said that  the State is passing through very difficult times where on one hand youth of the State are being pushed against the wall and on the other hand a conspiracy is being hatched to vitiate communal harmony in the state and it is the youth who have an important and a valuable role to play in addressing some of the most significant and inter related challenges faced  by the people.
The district president said that the anti-people policies of the PDP-BJP dispensation have brought the State at the volatile cross roads of history where nothing is visible except uncertainty, fear and harassment. “The scenario across the State particularly Kashmir valley is so grim that the people are apprehensive about their safety with economic activity and development coming to grinding halt”, he said, adding that the spree of lawlessness has further vitiated the atmosphere.
The current insensitive dispensation has exposed people to administrative inertia, as a result of which they were suffering on all fronts, he added.
Shaheen cautioned people against divisive politics being played by the ruling coalition with an eye on carving out vote banks by inciting passions and exploiting delicate public sentiments referring to the situation that has erupted in Kathua after heinous act of rape and  murder of an eight year old nomad girl.
