Political advisor to the chief minister Devender Singh Rana said that history of the state is testimony to the strong secular-democratic credentials of J&K National Conference and the sacrifices it has made to uphold the cause of communal harmony, brotherhood and amity are glaring.
Rana said J&K National Conference has always stood for the high principles of secularism, brotherhood and democracy and shall continue to do so in future as well. He said equitable development of all sections of the society has remained the benchmark of National Conference since its inception and the present coalition government under the leadership of Omar Abdullah continues to work towards that objective.
As per a statement, Rana who was addressing a public meeting at Ghorda in Block Bhalwal on Saturday said that National Conference represents aspirations of common people and its selfless service to public has always been above any consideration of creed, caste, colour, region or religion. He said National Conference is a party of common masses the roots of which are spread across the state and no one can damage its popular base.
“The detractors of democratic process have always tried to damage and defame National Conference but utterly failed in their nefarious designs as the people of the state always stood with the National Conference showing their utmost trust and faith in the party and its leadership and foiled all such attempts of the propagandist elements”, said Rana.
The political advisor also said that the National Conference is committed for a peaceful, progressive and prosperous Jammu and Kashmir enshrined in ‘Naya Kashmir’ and the state NC-Congress coalition government under the visionary leadership of Omar Abdullah is working in this direction.
Rana said that empowerment of common people and involving them in the development process from bottom to top level is the political objective of National Conference. He told the party workers to exhibit their unity and discipline while working for realization of development goals and asked the party workers to be actively involved in the implementation of development policy of the coalition government.
