Jammu, June 08 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President, Dr Farooq Abdullah, on Tuesday said that his party will uphold the interests of the people at all costs in every forum.
Farooq Abdullah was presiding over a virtual meeting of party’s functionaries of Jammu region that discussed wide ranging issues. The NC Vice President Omar Abdullah also participated in the deliberations.
Farooq Abdullah said the political issues post August 5, 2019 have been challenged by the NC in the Indian Supreme Court. He asked the party cadre to further strengthen its rank and file to meet the challenges faced to IIOJK unitedly and by following the philosophy of communal and regional amity. He said the NC is not against the delimitation process in Jammu and Kashmir but the method adopted is not in tandem with the procedure.
Farooq Abdullah discussed in detail various issues raised by the party functionaries and shared the concerns over road connectivity especially the smooth functioning of the Mughal Road. He said this link is very vital between the Kashmir Valley and Jammu region, as the Srinagar-Jammu highway is over-stressed and cannot hold the pressure of such a massive vehicular movement.
The NC President expressed concern over the unfortunate situation unfolded by the pandemic, causing a catastrophe to mankind. He sought active support of the people in making the ongoing vaccination drive a success.
Addressing the day-long virtual meet, Omar Abdullah asked the NC functionaries to review the party’s membership distribution process in Jammu region. He expressed concern over the prevailing uncertainty in IIOJK.
National Conference General Secretary Ali Mohammed Sagar, senior leaders Ajay Kumar Sadhotra, Surjeet Singh Slathia, Rattan Lal Gupta, Khalid Najeeb Suharwardy, Syed Mushtaq Ahmed Shah Bukhari, Javed Rana and Ajaz Jan participated in the meeting.
