KL Desk


All India Congress Committee (AICC) chief, Sonia Gandhi Tuesday urged that there is a need to “take note of the cry of pain and anguish”, which she believes is emanating from some sections of the society in the Jammu and Kashmir.

Sonia was quick to add express satisfaction over “remarkable progress” made in the state. She was addressing a meeting of the Congress Parliamentary party.

“Economic development has gathered pace in the state and a number of popular training and placement programmes have been started,” said Sonia.

“In Jammu and Kashmir, we have made remarkable progress in the last few years under the leadership and personal interest taken by our Prime Minister…the launch of rail services in the Valley is an example of how much infrastructure and connectivity have expanded. Tourism has been floursing,” she added.

Acknowledging that certain incidents in recent past have interrupted the otherwise developing trusting atmosphere, she said, “yet, we should take note of the cry of pain and anguish emanating from some sections of society there. We will continue to work for peace and normalcy and development in all regions of the state in right earnest.”

“We simply cannot lower our vigil,” she said while extending her heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the victims of the recent terror strikes in Srinagar and Hyderabad.
