Urging Party cadres to gear up for Panchayat Polls being conducted shortly, G.A.

Stating that this Party (PDP) with the fear of loosing Anantnag Lok Sabha ensured deferment of Parliamentary Elections on the pretext of deteriorating situation, now the ruling Parties are going to hold Panchayat Elections, but I want to ask the Govt as to what measures it will take to ensure safety and security of the contestants, for the fact, the situation in Kashmir valley has further deteriorated. This Govt cannot be trusted because it will anytime escape or take U-Turn after sensing defeat in these elections also.
PCC Chief said people had a bitter experience as to what PDP has done in Kashmir and BJP in Jammu, as both the Parties are working to strengthen themselves only rather than strengthening people. Corruption, nepotism, favoritism has become a hallmark PDP, as a result, they (People) have no expectations from this Govt or PDP BJP leading to their isolation, there is a complete mistrust among the people.
Referring to the communal, fascist forces that are being strengthened by BJP in the Country, PCC Chief said that PDP’s joining hands with communal forces vitiated the peaceful atmosphere in the valley, as that, there is great anger among the people against communal forces hell bent upon to divide people on religious lines, but it is the PDP which has enabled the communal forces to make inroads in the state, for which it will have to pay heavy price.
Adding that Congress being the only unifying forces alone can defeat communal fascist forces in the Country, G.A. Mir said that Congress has fought against these forces to maintain secular fabric of the country and is capable enough to safeguard the diversity, unity and communal harmony in the country, Congress Party will never compromise on its ideology for power, will ensure that the anti -peace forces are defeated tooth and nail.
G.A. Mir urged upon the Party Cadres to remain steadfast to serve the people to the best of their ability and ensure that problems confronting people are addressed, as that, people are facing great difficulties due to the wrong and anti-people policies adopted by the PDP BJP in the State.
