Tarigami pays tributes to Sheikh Abdullah
Srinagar, Dec 5: CPI (M) State Secretary Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami paid glowing tributes to National Conference founder Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah on his 107th birth anniversary.
In a statement Tarigami said, “followers of late Abdullah should see whether the ideals of democracy and social advancement propagated and so dear to the departed leader are being followed on the ground.”
Referring to the struggle and sacrifices made by Sheikh Abdullah for the cause of people, Tarigami said empowerment of people was cherished aim and he made all possible endeavors in this direction.
“The cause espoused by late Abdullah during his struggle against feudalism and the objectives set, in progressive Socialistic-Politico-Economic document known as Naya Kashmir seems not matching with the ground reality,” he said.
Meanwhile, Tarigami condemned what he termed as coercive methods being adopted to “suppress voices of dissent.” “The fundamental democratic rights cannot be denied and we should not be afraid of people’s genuine aspirations.
We will have to carry people with us and not to take them at a ride. We have to listen to them, talk to them; engage them, allow them to protest, accept the political dissent and accommodate the wide-ranging viewpoints. Democratization of local polity is need of the hour and institutions of governance need to be democratized and strengthened,” he added.
