NC will work towards restoring peace, stability in J&K: Dr Farooq Abdullah

Addresses party workers in Teetwal, Tangdhar

 
 
Srinagar, 14 May: J&K National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah Tuesday said J&K has had no democracy over the last five years saying the absence of an elected government has deprived people of their daily necessities as major institutions stand paralyzed. 
 
He made these remarks while addressing workers’ convention in Teetwal and Tangdhar today. Senior leaders Sharifuddin Shariq, Khalid Najeeb Suharwardy, Kafeelur Rahman, Asrar Khan, Dr. Sameer Kaul, Waqar Khan and other functionaries were present on this occasion.
 
He said, “Lok Sabha elections are the first major elections to be held here after August 05, 2019 and it is a great opportunity for the people of Jammu and Kashmir to express their displeasure against the decisions of the central government. Therefore, it is important that we use our right to vote wisely and convey the message to the country as well as the whole world that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have not accepted the decisions of 5th August 2019. Apart from this, people have also got an opportunity to reject those parties and self-styled leaders who brought BJP here in 2015 and destroyed this historic state and caused suffering, difficulties and problems to the people of every section.”
 
He said that with the conclusion of the parliamentary elections, the assembly election is going to be held and we have to prepare for this election from today. Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that the National Conference wishes for complete peace and prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir and our party will continue to fight for the restoration of constitutional and democratic rights of the people here. He said that ending uncertainty and anxiety in Jammu and Kashmir is the most important need of the hour.
 
He said that those who brought guns here and killed innocent people here and went and sat in the lap of RSS, how can they be sympathetic to the people. He said that the National Conference will work for the restoration and development of peace and stability in Jammu and Kashmir and will take the lead for the relief of the people at all levels. Serving the people in all circumstances has been the basic principle of the National Conference and the party still adheres to its golden principles.
