100 political workers join PC
We want to clean Srinagar of lumpen elements: Sajad
Srinagar, Oct 17: At least one hundred political workers from Srinagar city joined Peoples Conference on Sunday, a PC spokesman said
He said the PC Chairman, Sajad Lone welcomed the workers from Lal Bazaar in the party.
“The delegation headed by Syed Owais Qadri, ex councilor joined Peoples Conference in the presence of Sajad. Qadri was accompanied by 110 workers and activists from Lal Bazaar,” he said.
“Qadri delved in detail about the problems faced by the residents of Srinagar and gave statistical details about the budgetary allocation for the district. In a startling budgetary comparison within the districts in Valley, Qadri pointed out that the budgetary allocation for Srinagar was the lowest,” he added.
Lone expressed his gratitude to new entrants for showing confidence in the ideology of Peoples Conference and its resolve to chart out a path of change. He said that he was encouraged by the interest shown by sections of society, particularly the youth in joining Peoples Conference. “We are moving along in pursuit of the realization of a dream to cleanse and rid Srinagar of those lumpen elements who have overtaken the polity of Srinagar. The twin ruling families have, in pursuit of power, cultivated a culture of despotism, corruption and chaos for power. The time has come to usher into an era of dignity, empowerment and prosperity and Srinagar being the face of Kashmir deserves clean and sincere politics,” Lone said.
The PC chairman appealed to opinion makers and enlightened sections of the society in Srinagar to come forward and do what it takes to usher the city into an era of change.
“The culture of nonchalance and passivity is a recipe for disaster. The sole beneficiaries of this passivity are the twin ruling families who have a vested interest in this passivity. While the majority stays indoors, they in connivance with a minority comprising of lumpen and vagabond elements engage in wanton loot and plunder. The onus lies on the people of Srinagar,” he said.
