Mir stressed upon the need to isolate anti peace elements creating wedge between the people to take advantage of the situations. He also blamed both Centre and State Govts for not coming upto the expectations of the people, as a result people in all the three regions feel betrayed and backstabbed, Mir was addressing a day long political convention at Kargil today.
Addressing the Party Convention PCC Chief urged the party leaders to defeat the designs of anti-peace elements creating fissures in the communities inorder to take full advantage of the disturbances to serve their vested interests. He said Congress is committed to is stated position of maintaining integrity of the State and is capable of defeating the forces harming the tradition of unity, together & brotherhood in the State.
He said Jammu and Kashmir is a unique state in which people of every religions live in an atmosphere of friendship and brotherhood and respect the emotions of each other, but there are certain forces visible and invisible who want to disturb this age old tradition of communal harmony and brotherhood, but Congress Party being the only unifying force will defeat their designs and won’t allow any external or internal force to vitiate the atmosphere of peace in the State. Congress Party has a history of serving and strengthening the people and would continue to remain steadfast in strengthening the people
Referring to the failure of the State & Centre Govts, PCC Chief said that not only people of the Country, but the State also have fully realized that both Centre Govt and State Govt have exploited them on certain sensitive issues for the sake of coming into the Power. The promises made with the people of Jammu, Ladakh and Kashmir by PDP BJP in the State have not been fulfilled as yet, as a result the people of the all the three regions feel alienated. He termed the current unrest in the Valley as the outcome of the misrule and anti-people polices of the PDP BJP Coalition, who have promised a lot to address the concerns of the people, but nothing was done on their Part even the AoA between the Coalition Partner’s (PDP-BJP) have proved to be a political gimmick to betray and keep the people guessing that something would happen, but the people have realized they have been back stabbed by PDP & BJP for the sake of power.
Reminding the people of Kargil and Ladakh about the steps taken by the UPA I and UPA for the overall development of the Ladakh Region, PCC Chief said that successive UPA regimes left no stone unturned to bring the Ladakh region at par with other parts of the Country, but the present Govt at Centre seems to be in a state of confusion on this front also and is not able to carry forward the works sanctioned by UPA Ist and UPA IInd, such as Zojila Tunnel and other important developmental projects. He said this is unfortunate that Centre has not been able to understand the basic issues confronting people of not only Ladakh Region, but Jammu and Kashmir Regions also, who are grappled with great difficulties in respect of development, employment etc.
Those who addressed the convention included MLA Vice President Haji Ab. Rashid Dar, MLA Asgar Karbalai, Spokesperson Farooq Andrabi, MLA Deldan Namgiyal, Ex. MLA and Gen Secy Gulam Raza Senior Leaders and Councilors of Kargil. (CNS)
