Mufti asks youth to be pioneers of change
Jammu, Dec 12: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed Wednesday sought support of the youth to establish what he called a system where every section of the society would get justice and equal opportunities for development and economic growth. He said that youth being future of the state have to play important role in making Jammu and Kashmir a model state.
Addressing a meeting of student activists from different degree colleges of Jammu region who called on him at his residence this afternoon, Mufti said it was his desire to make Jammu and Kashmir an “island of peace” and he sought cooperation and support of youth to fulfill this dream.
Exhorting youth to work for unity and integrity of all the three regions of the state, PDP patron cautioned them against the tactics of those political groups which speak different languages in different regions. He said it was need of the hour to teach a lesson to those forces which have been involved in doublespeak just to hoodwink the common masses.
Mufti said during its tenure PDP-Congress regime had proved its capability of changing life of the common masses by treating all individuals equally and providing equal opportunities to all sections of the society.
He said PDP-led regime had brought transparency and accountability in governance by strengthening democratic institutions in the state. He said during PDP led regime more than 70,000 youth were appointed as teachers under Rehbar-e-Talim (ReT) scheme and more than 30,000 Anganwari workers were also appointed in a transparent manner. Emphasizing the need for starting job oriented courses in different colleges, Mufti informed the students that during the tenure of PDP led regime technical courses were introduced in the educational institutions to ensure placement of pass-outs.
Terming PDP as party of future in Jammu and Kashmir, he said that PDP has emerged as the real voice of the people of State.
Deepinder Kour, Rajinder Singh Manhas, Surinder Choudhary, Ashiq Hussain and others also spoke on the occasion.
