The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former chief minister on Thursday said that the people reposing faith in PDP is a certificate of public trust for the agenda and record of the uncompromising pro-people stance of the party.
“It has been widely accepted that PDP’s agenda is the only practical roadmap that can pull the state out of the uncertainty and distress. We have demonstrated how, if supported by people, the leadership of this party can deliver on promises of forwarding movement on the resolution of the issue of J&K”, Mufti said.
Mehbooba underlined that the period of PDP’s rule in the state saw path-breaking developmental and public welfare measures being initiated. “Although most of the time, we were dealing with the law and order situation and we got a very small window to execute our plans of public welfare and development during the last government, we took some landmark initiatives,” she said.
“Abolishing stamp duty on registration of land deals for women, starting a new horticulture policy, ensuring smooth food supplies to every household of the state, regularizing 60,000 daily wagers and contractual employees, establishing medical colleges & hospitals, better road connectivity etc are some of the things we pulled off in spite of troubled times in the state”, she added.
