Jammu: The decision of withdrawal of cases arising out of 2016 unrest against thousands of youth is “another significant measure” to restore peace and initiate “purposeful engagement for a promising future”, Senior Vice President of Peoples Democratic Party Sartaj Madni said Friday.
Addressing party workers at Jammu, Madani said Chief Minister’s “ardent desire to see J&K out of prolonged uncertainty is becoming more manifest now than the adverse propaganda unleashed by her adversaries”.
He said that a spell of unease was stressful for government and “highly painful” for the Chief Minister.
“The situation that erupted in 2016 also marred the discourse of reconciliation dialogue and development. Unfortunately, many from the opposition rushed to conclusions and started questioning party’s integrity. However, the flimsy and false propaganda is now melting under the sincere and people-friendly measures being taken one after another. The untruth will soon be nailed down through sustainable positive discourse . The PDP will come up to expectations of people and will be vindicated,” he said.
He said that before taking over as CM, Mehbooba had taken three months to seek further assurances from Union Government and BJP on typically sensitive issues facing Jammu and Kashmir state.
