SRINAGAR: J&K Peoples Conference President Sajad Gani Lone on Saturday met and interacted with a delegation of prominent workers from the Sopore constituency at its headquarters in Srinagar. Senior Vice President of the party Abdul Gani Vakil was also present on the occasion.
While addressing the gathering, PC President Sajad Gani Lone asserted that safeguarding the interests of the people, especially the youth of J&K is the biggest leadership challenge in the current times.
“It is imperative that we define what leadership in Kashmir entails. What does leadership in Kashmir mean today? We firmly believe that Leadership means rising to the occasion and rescuing the Kashmiris instead of feeding them to hungry lions. The luxury to perform in pre-scripted theatres in Kashmir is long gone. It is time the leadership rose from its slumber and understood that every word that the leadership utters has a consequence for the people of Kashmir,” he added.
Sajad further exhorted the people of J&K to stay far-sighted, firm and resolved to get Jammu and Kashmir out of the present cycle of uncertainty.
“It is not the time to get terrified due to the tough ordeals of the present time. It is a long game; the leadership will have to be patient if we want to achieve something for the people of J&K. People’s Conference is the party that has a legacy of sacrifices. We will continue to strive to accord people a dignified way of living and will do everything in our power to protect a common Kashmiri from being victimized,” he said.
While addressing the workers PC senior Vice President Abdul Gani Vakil said that PC is committed and resolved to get Jammu and Kashmir out of the morass of uncertainty and chaos with a pragmatic and far-sighted approach. He said that PC President Sajad Lone is the only leader who can take J&K out of the current impasse and deliver for the people of Kashmir.
“PC is the only party standing for the interests of the people of J&K. The need of the hour is that the people of Kashmir stand with Chairman Sajad Gani Lone and help him realise his grand vision for the progress of the state and protecting the rights and dignity of its people,” he added.
