Srinagar: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) chief Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said he will bring laws that secures the jobs and land for the locals, if voted to power.
He was speaking at a public gathering in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore sub district.
Azad said he would never cheat the people of Jammu and Kashmir with deceit and lies and would work day and night to ensure every person here reaps the dividends of peace and development.
“I won’t cheat my own people with deceit and lies unlike successive regimes did in the past. My priority is to restore security of people, ensure overall development takes place and in whole UT is progressing socio-economically,” the former Congress leader said.
Azad said that if his party is elected to power, he will bring laws that secures the jobs and land for the locals.
“Article 35 A was taken away. There were two main rights for the people of J&K because under that we have to restore land and job rights. But, that can be done only through an assembly, by passing a law in the assembly so that outsiders cannot get employment or land here,” he said . “If our party emerges victorious in the upcoming elections, the jobs and land shall be secured through legislation.”
Azad said he and his party colleagues do not fear anyone and will rid J&K of the currently prevalent system.
“We do not fear anyone, we do not fear any raids, we are not afraid of being jailed. We have not done anything in our life to fear either the central government or the state government,” he added.
Azad also questioned why the authorities are allowing blacklisted agencies to conduct exams in Jammu and Kashmir.
