‘Srinagar youth want change under PDP leadership’
Srinagar Dec 23: Reiterating its demand for creating an environment of real change and trust in Jammu and Kashmir especially in Srinagar city, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has urged upon the people of the summer capital to strengthen the party.
In a statement a PDP spokesman said a meeting of youth belonging to Srinagar city from Amirakadal , Batamaloo and Sonwar constituencies was held at PDP head office in Srinagar. The statement said on the occasion senior PDP leader and MLA Peerzada Mansoor Hussain urged upon the residents of Srinagar city particularly the youth to get involved in political process so that the issues related to mis-governance, corruption and other issues are addressed.
“For achieving this, PDP is the only option for them. National Conference led Government has failed to provide basic amenities to the people of state particularly the Srinagar city. We feel like living in dark ages,” Mansoor told the gathering.
The spokesman said PDP leader Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat gave a detailed lecture on the Self Rule document through a power point presentation. He said opening of the traditional routes like Kargil-Skardu , Turtuk-Khaploo, Bhimber- Mirpur will usher a new era of development in J&K and open new job opportunities for the people particularly the youth.
Muzaffar asked the NC led coalition government to take lessons from the Delhi government in handling the ongoing protests there.
During the interactive session, the spokesman said youth delegation told PDP leaders that hundreds of youth of old city have cases pending in various police stations. “And the harassment continues till date and on daily basis such youth are being called to police stations, humiliated and tortured,” the spokesman said.
