Jammu: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tuesday said that rehabilitation of victims of unrest has been a deep concern for Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and providing resource and support to most affected persons is her desire she wants to pursue through absolute empathy and humility.
Referring to the gesture of compassion from her shown to Insha, a pellet victim of 2016 unrest by providing an honorable livelihood to her and several others, Party’s Vice President Sartaj Madni said this is an act emanating from the pain felt by her for innocent sufferers and victims of unfortunate circumstances that need to end.
Madni said that PDP leadership has always felt that state’s people in general and youth in particular cannot thrive into a situation of conflict and confrontation. PDP’s emergence in itself is an outcome of the critical need to lead the state into stability through reconciliation and healing.
He said the Coalition Governments headed by Mufti Syed vehemently pursued a course to find an answer to uncertainty and public dissatisfaction with a goal to end woes and miseries afflicted the masses.
“Mufti Saheb largely succeeded in his effort to bring peace, stability and relief to people. Coalition headed by Mehbooba Mufti is only devoted to revive that positive discourse of reconciliation through free engagement and sustained development,” Madni said.
He said Mehbooba sincerely wants that her Government is transformed into an institution of relief and empowerment. “She is taking consecutive measures of significance in this direction and has successfully been seeking engagement of state’s people into reconciliation, dialogue and resolution of issues,” he said.
She is the first Chief Minister who reaches out herself to provide relief and redress grievances at people’s doorsteps.
Relentlessly pursuing the agenda of peace, an imperative for success of the people-friendly policies, she is committed to take her Government to door steps Madni said it is because of her efforts that New Delhi established an institution of dialogue which has started showing results.
He said Mehbooba’s struggle to relieve the state from confrontation and conflict forms soul of the party and it is her belief to provide conducive atmosphere for growth and dignified life to everyone. After Amnesty and withdrawal of FIR’s against thousands of youth, the relief and rehabilitation for sufferers is another step that will further the cause of reconciliation and will provide youth a space to live free and dignified life.
