SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Friday called for forging unity across the State to trounce the “divisive agenda” of BJP and its ilk saying the forthcoming general elections.
Farooq while addressing the delegations from Anantnag, Srinagar, Magam, Beerwah, Pulwama and Shopian here at party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha said, “It is high time for the people of all the regions across the State to put up a strong front against the divisive agenda of RSS-BJP in J&K. I am sure the people will give befitting reply to RSS and its ilk.”
“If the people don’t forge unity at this time, the posterity will never forgive us. It is for us to bequeath our coming generations a peaceful future. The forthcoming general elections afford the people an opportunity to secure themselves a peaceful future shorn of communal strife,” he said.
Among others, party general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, G N Ratanpuri, Sajad Uri and Mushtaq Guroo were also present on the occasion.
Abdullah said the people of State should not fall prey to the divisive agenda of communal forces. “These forces directly and indirectly will try to vitiate the atmosphere but we as a peace loving society should not allow ourselves get swayed by their malicious propaganda,” he said. “In the forthcoming elections people of the State will give befitting reply to such forces who are contriving to create wedge between various regions of the state.”
Meanwhile, a delegation of Kashmiri traders whose stalls had suffered from damage in fire incident in Hyderabad called upon the NC president here and apprised him about the “failure” of the Telengana government to recompense their losses, the statement said.
