They shouldn’t pay heed to threats: Prof Soz
Baramulla, Nov 6: State Congress chief, Prof Saifuddin Soz Tuesday asked Panchs and Sarpanchs not to pay any heed to militant threats and “instead focus on working for people’s welfare as they enjoy full public support.”
“Elected Panchayat members enjoy full support and confidence of people so they need not pay any heed to the threats from whatever quarter. They should devote all their time and energy for the welfare of the society,” Soz said, while speaking at a function organised in connection with the inauguration of Public Health Centre (PHC) at Delina, here.
He said Kashmiri people have denounced all kinds of violence and as such any kind of threat aimed at frightening the Panchayat members should be ignored completely.
He said state Congress is working hard with its coalition partner (National Conference) for the empowerment of Panchayat members.
Soz said he has taken up with the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh the issue of giving some honorarium to Panchs and Sarpanchs.
