Mir welcomes opening of Kartarpur Corridor
Seeks more religious places to be open as Kartapur corridor
Jammu and Kashmir congress chief urged India and Pakistan to open the route for famous pilgrimage place of Kashmiri Pundit's in Pakistan occupied Kashmir 'Sharda Peeth' as it connects with the faith of thousands of Kashmiri Pandits. Termed the recent step of India and Pakistan for opening Kartarpur Corridor for Sikh pilgrims a major and a welcome step, Mir said expectations of people have increased after this move and we want more and more religious places to open for pilgrimage.
To show their strength, the congress party held a mega rally to felicitate newly elected Panchs and Sarpanchs at Doda on Thursday to prove their claims where party Chief Ghulam Mohammed Mir, senior leader Abdul Majid Wani and senior Leader Thakur Balbir Singh among other congress leaders were present.
On the sidelines of Congress rally at Doda, Mir said, "Kartarpur is a great step as it's the first goodwill step between the two countries. We want other religious places to be kept open which help in building confidence among people and also provide both governments an atmosphere to sought-out their differences."
On fresh elections in Jammu and Kashmir' Mir said, "Congress party is ready for the elections anytime, but we want both elections of Lok Sabha and Assembly should be conducted at the same time and it should be held within six months as earlier on 19 July, when BJP withdrew and no political party claimed for government, the governor should have dissolved the assembly and conducted fresh elections, but that did not happen."
However, Senior Congress Leader and Former Minister from Doda Abdul Majid Wani accused NC and PDP for boycotting in elections and then contest with proxy candidates to help BJP and his party would contest the next assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir alone.
