The Northlines - - HILL DISTRICT - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT KISHTWAR, JAN 11

Hold­ing National Con­fer­ence, Congress and BJP re­spon­si­ble for back­ward­ness of no­mads in Chenab Val­ley, Mem­ber Leg­isla­tive Council Fir­dous Tak Fri­day said that the Gu­j­jar and Bakar­wals were used just as mere vote bank by their own elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Tak was ad­dress­ing a party meet­ing at Gu­j­jar Basti in Nagseni Blaock of Kishtwar dis­trict. A large num­ber of national con­fer­ence work­ers joined on the oc­ca­sion and pledged to strengthen the hands of Ms Me­hbooba Mufti. On this oc­ca­sion, the Zonal Pres­i­dent PDP Kishtwar Arshad Giri, Dis­trict Pres­i­dent Youth Wasil Doowal, Haji Mohd Iqbal, Ab Rasheed Butt, Gh Mohd Sheikh, Fir­dous Ta­pal, Arshad Hus­sain, Sa­j­jad Hus­sain, Shahid Hus­sain Gilkar, Tariq Hus­sain, Im­ran Ah­mad , Elam Din, Ab Kasim be­side other se­nior party lead­ers were present.

Tak said that the peo­ple of Chenab Val­ley re­main de­prived of even the ba­sic ameni­ties de­spite the re­gion con­tribut­ing strongly to the state econ­omy. He said that peo­ple had dreamed of pros­per­ity and voted NC and Congress out of power only to face an­other be­trayal this time at the hand of BJP.

He said that PDP on the other hand has stood for all weaker sec­tions of the so­ci­ety and fought for their rights. "It was Mufti Muham­mad Say­eed who cre­ated a sep­a­rate Tribal Af­fairs Min­istry and gave representation to the com­mu­nity', he said adding that the than Chief

Min­is­ter Ms. Me­hbooba Mufti stood firm in the Asifa case mak­ing sure that the fam­ily gets jus­tice. He said that the only way to get Chenab Val­ley out of back­ward­ness and un­der de­vel­op­ment was to grant it sep­a­rate di­vi­sional sta­tus. the re­or­gan­i­sa­tion of ad­min­is­tra­tive setup was nec­es­sary to ad­dress de­vel­op­ment deficit of far off areas of the state.

"The PDP trans­formed the po­lit­i­cal ide­olo­gies and forced even the op­po­nents like NC and Congress to adopt the policy of peace and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion", he said adding, "Today all the po­lit­i­cal par­ties speak about di­a­logue and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion be­sides friendly re­la­tions with the neigh­bours. This is the achieve­ment of PDP", he said.
