SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Chief Spokesperson and In Charge Constituency Zadibal Tanvir Sadiq on Sunday chaired a convention of party functionaries in Dug Mohalla, Rainawari in Zadibal Constituency. On the occasion he welcomed prominent businessman and social activist Irshad Ahmad into the party.
Addressing the workers Tanvir said that the government was busy swelling its coffers, but when it comes to passing on the benefits to the poor, it sidesteps its responsibility. “Despite charging hefty amounts from consumers, the rampant erratic power supply and unscheduled cuts is taking a toll on people during the ongoing winter season. The administration is further deepening the troubles of people by providing inferior quality of rice at FCSCA ration stores. There is no accountability on the ground,” he said.
“We have long been identified with J&K’s identity, dignity and historical uniqueness. The march of gradually increasing space for democratic forces in Kashmir is a result of NC’s historical efforts, people know this. This is why NC is the first and last choice of people. People of J&K have seen political parties surface and vanish. On our part we will continue to guard our people’s trust in us with our lives,” Tanvir said.
“There is no end to government apathy. Unemployment, development deficit, and administrative apathy have become the bywords of Jammu & Kashmir. Today’s J&K is defined by anxiety, fear and insecurity and there is no end to it.”
On the occasion, Tanvir welcomed number of socio political activists into the party fold, hoping that the party will benefit from their wide ranging experience in public life. The new entrants too vowed to strengthen the party at grassroot level.
