DODA: Chairman Democratic Progressive Azad Party, Ghulam Nabi Azad has said that DPAP will continue to strive for redressal of all issues of concern to people of Jammu and Kashmir and is the only party which has a clear roadmap of its development.
“Be it smart meters, ration curtailment, land eviction, electricity and potable water problems, DPAP has only one agenda which is to strive hard for redressal of all grievances of general masses of Jammu and Kashmir,” Azad said addressing a large gathering at Bulandpur in Assar area of Doda district today.
Reminding the people of his tenure as Chief Minister which lasted for just two and half years, Azad assured residents of Chenab region that DPAP means development and progress of the public in Jammu and Kashmir. “What makes us (DPAP) different is our ideology and agenda of development without any bias and prejudice of religion and region,” Azad said during his third day of the Chenab region tour.
Stressing upon discipline and dedication among party workers, Azad made it clear that only those will survive and thrive in DPAP who work at grassroots level rather than hanker for posts. “DPAP has one motto which is to work for the welfare of people at grassroots level. There is no place for indolent leaders and workers as accountability is the essence of our existence in the political sphere of J&K,” he affirmed.
Emphasising the grant of rights on land, jobs, resources, the former J&K Chief Minister said that DPAP if elected would ensure that natives of Jammu and Kashmir would get their basic rights, which are very dear to them, back and reverse the decisions on these crucial issues to people.
“Being a landlocked place and border area, Jammu and Kashmir youth have no employment avenues while the people bore the brunt of violence during 33 years of terrorism, its economy also suffered badly making it difficult to sustain livelihood,” he said.
The gathering was also addressed by DPAP leaders including GM Saroori, vice chairman, Abdul Majid Wani-general secretary, PR Manhas Zonal president, District president Asif Gattu senior DPAP leader Ramesh Parihar and others.
