SRINAGAR, NOVEMBER, 27:
J&K Peoples Conference President Sajad Gani Lone today met and interacted with prominent workers from Sopore to discuss an array of issues concerning the party and the people of J&K.
Speaking on the occasion PC President Sajad Lone said that Jammu and Kashmir needs politics of inclusivity and hope, not of favoritism and hopelessness. He said that to achieve this objective, Peoples’ Conference is tirelessly working towards empowering the people by placing Kashmir first, above all other fragmented identities and differences of opinion.
“Safeguarding the interests of the people, especially the youth of J&K is the biggest leadership challenge in the current times. The people of J&K need a sympathetic and honest government that puts the needs of the people first, above its own partisan interests,” he said.
He further said that in absence of an elected government, the people of J&K are facing immense hardships and that there is an immediate need for greater interaction of officers at grassroots level.
“The woes of the common masses on ground are mounting with each passing day and that the administration needs to go beyond the rhetoric and make sincere efforts to engage the people of J&K for a lasting solution to the present challenges. The inaccessibility of this administration has deepened the disconnect between them and the inhabitants of J&K. People are showing up in droves in government departments and demanding to be heard. However at every level of government there is little or no access and audience”, he added.
He urged the administration to work as a bridge between the government and citizens to ensure a more effective and efficient governance delivery system.
PC President was accompanied by Senior Vice President Abdul Gani Vakil, Syed Basharat Bukhari, Raja Aijaz Ali, District President Baramulla Asif Lone, Sonaullah Parray, Addl Spokesperson Umman Wani including others.
