SRINAGAR: National Conference on Friday reiterated its commitment to protect J&K’s special status and safeguarding the “unique political and cultural identity that forms the basis of the State’s relationship with the rest of the country”.
Addressing party leaders and office bearers at the monthly Provincial Committee Meeting held at party’s head office, Nawa-e-Subha here, NC general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar asked the party leaders to continue with their awareness campaign about “intrigues being hatched by the powers that be” against the Article 35-A and the State’s special status and said the party would not allow anyone to barter the interests of the State for their own nefarious interests.
Sagar, as per statement, reviewed the ground activities of party in Kashmir and took stock of various organisational initiatives and matters along with NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani and zone presidents, Muhammad Akbar Lone and Ali Muhammad Dar.
The NC general secretary and provincial president also asked the party leaders to work closely with the grassroots workers in addressing pressing public issues and concerns in their respective areas. “Our workers are the backbone of the party and all efforts should be made to involve the youth in evolving ways to strengthen the party and also reach out to the people who are facing the worst possible era of misgovernance and political instability due to the opportunistic alliance that is at the helm in the State,” Sagar said.
