PDP Asks Ex-Ministers, MLAs To Extend Public Outreach


SRINAGAR — The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) Thursday said asked the former ministers and MLAs to extend their public out­reach. This was impressed at a party meet which was attended by senior party leadership and was attended by former minis­ters, legislators, and leaders.

The meeting was held at Dak Bungalow Anantnag and was chaired by PDP Vice president, Abdul Rahman Veeri, who, “in his address asked the leaders to focus on their respective constit­uencies and remain connected with people, party activists, and workers on the ground.”

The PDP vice President main­tained further that the party founder Mufti Mohammad Say­eed laid the foundation of the PDP by investing “all the six de­cades of his political experience and was successful in making PDP a guiding force in Jammu and Kashmir’s political landscape.”

He added that when the PDP formed the government in the “state post-2002 elections for the first time, there was a major change witnessed in both the political as well as in the admin­istrative set up of the state.”

“The PDP is the only party which has been keeping all the three regions of Jammu and Kashmir intact and united while prioritizing for the equitable growth and fulfilment of the regional aspirations all across,” Veeri said in his address.

He added that the PDP Presi­dent Mehbooba Mufti has been treading the same path which was shown to the people by Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the party will scale “new hori­zons under her able leadership.”

Asserting that the main objec­tive of the PDP “is to guarantee peace and stability in the state,” Veeri said that the party’s ear­nest efforts in making the Jam­mu and Kashmir a hub of “peace and tranquility could be gauged by the fact that on all fronts, the PDP government in the state em­powered youth and was success­ful in withdrawing more than twelve thousand FIRs registered against the youngsters.”

“The party accorded a dignified life to these youth who were bun­dled in jails and PDP gave them a reason to put their lives back on track and prosper. The fact is that PDP is the only platform that gave voice to the people by providing the only viable and credible alter­native to the people of Jammu & Kashmir,” said Veeri.

He added that despite the medley of the internal troubles within the coalition, the PDP led government always stood at the forefront to ensure that the state’s interests aren’t bartered against the petty power.

Veeri said that the remon­strance by the PDP against any injustice perpetrated against the people of the state is known to all and the guiding principle set by party’s founder Mufti Mo­hammad Sayeed will act as a torch bearer for the PDP’s future course of action as well.

The leaders present in the meeting also resolved to make PDP vibrant force in the state once again and democratize its mission so that Kashmir could be saved from the present apoca­lyptic situation. The PDP leaders who were present in the meeting include Mansoor Hussain, Par­liament member Nazir Ahmad Laway, Abdul Gaffar Sofi, Rafi Ahmad Mir, Mohammad Khalil Bandh, Zahoor Ahmad Mir, Aijaz Ahmad Mir, Mohammad You­suf Bhat, Syed Farooq Andrabi, Mushtaq Ahmad Shah, Abdul Ra­him Rather, Abdul Majeed Pad­der and others.
