ANANTNAG: Hailing the significant welfare initiatives taken by the Mehbooba Mufti-led government, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said time has come for action and people have already started getting a sense of change on the ground.
As per a statement issued here, PDP general secretary, Mohammad Sartaj Madni addressed a party workers convention at Achabal in Shangus constituency of district Anantnag.
He said PDP has established clear political, economic and developmental priorities for Jammu and Kashmir. “PDP is committed to the welfare of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and as part of the coalition government in the state the party is working tirelessly under the leadership of Mehbooba Mufti to implement its welfare agenda,” he said. Madni said PDP is committed to implement the vision of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed of ushering Jammu and Kashmir into an era of peace, stability and prosperity. “Our party has established clear political priorities and we would continue our struggle to seek resolution of the multiple problems faced by Jammu and Kashmir on political, economic, administrative and financial fronts,” he said.
“PDP set forth on a journey of hope in 1999 under the visionary leadership of Mufti Mohammad to change the course of Jammu and Kashmir for the better. The party established clear political priorities for itself and focused on them relentlessly to pull the state out of the morass of instabilities and uncertainties plaguing it for the past more than six decades,” he said.
