Mandi: While referring to the present situation in the State, the National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday urged the Centre to resolve the issues which are essentially political in nature and try to win over the alienated hearts and minds by shunning the policy of creating divisions.
“The claims that demonetization had put an end to stone pelting in the Valley have fallen flat as the youth were now taking to guns. The situation therefore cannot be allowed to drift anymore,” he said
Calling for earnest initiatives to reach out to the people, he cautioned the Centre against taking the people of Jammu and Kashmir for granted and ignoring their legitimate aspirations.
“Sooner the two nations appreciate the ground realities better it would be for bringing thaw in the relations and ending hostilities of all sorts”, Dr Farooq Abdullah said while addressing a public rally at Mandi
National Conference President also blamed the PDP-BJP dispensation in Jammu and Kashmir for failing on deliverance front, saying developmental inertia has taken toll of various utility services.
