Chrari Sharief (Budgam): Asserting that National Conference (NC) has played an unparalleled historical role for so-socio political emancipation of the Jammu and Kashmir state, the senior NC leader and Minister for Finance and Ladakh Affairs, Abdul Rahim Rather, today asked the people of the state to further strengthen NC for safeguarding state’s identity and its age old traditions of communal harmony.
Addressing public gatherings at Dardpora and Dalwan villages of Chrari Sharief constituency Rather said interests of the state are safe in the hands of NC alone given its track record of sacrifices for the cause of people. He asked the people especially youth to study the Kashmir history in depth and see how NC and its leadership has rendered supreme sacrifices for the cause of J&K and its people.
“We have devised a well planned strategy to make the state self-sufficient in power generation in next 5 to 8 years and have also devised a broad based employment scheme for youth, he informed.
Cautioning about machinations of the opposition political parties to mislead and hoodwink people about the contribution of NC in the political arena of the state, Rather said the BJP for lust of power tries to divide the society on the basis of religion whereas the PDP has become the safe haven for every corrupt and tainted opportunist element in the state. These political parties are changing colours like chameleons to deceive the people for satiating their vested political interests. He asked the people to fight tooth and nail against all such anti people elements and defeat them in the forth coming Assembly elections.
