Srinagar: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) Chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday said people of Jammu & Kashmir need to be healed emotionally as well as politically since they feel frightened and insecure in their own homes.
He also reiterated that his party will bring laws in the Jammu Kashmir Assembly to protect the land and jobs for local people if voted to power and ensure there is no socio- economic or political disempowerment of people.
The former Chief Minister was speaking at a public rally in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district.
Azad said that he is feeling upset to see the fear and anxiety over the faces of people due to anti-people laws enacted by BJP in Jammu Kashmir.
“My priority is to overturn all these anti-people decisions enacted by the ruling party in the Union Territory,” he said.
Azad said that he will continue his public outreach programmes across the nook and corner of the Union Territory since people have a lot to say post Article 370 abrogation.
He said the people of Jammu Kashmir need to be healed emotionally as well as politically since they feel frightened and insecure in their own homes.
“First, they frame the laws without the public consultation and next day they come with bulldozers to demolish your homes. We will find the panacea to this problem and overturn all decisions they have made over the years,” he said.
Azad said that he will ensure no part of UT is left where he could not reach and in the coming days he will intensify his outreach programmes.
“We don’t need these anti-people laws but efficient and competent governance to take UT out of this present morass. I will bring that era back where people have smiles on their faces and peace on their minds, God willing,” he assured the gathering.
