Cong will form next Govt in JK: Prof Soz
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Apr 7: State Congress chief Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz Sunday declared that his party will ensure that it forms next government in the state on its own.
“Our popularity has grown over the years in Jammu and Kashmir and Congress has now made inroads across the state”, Soz, who was re-appointed PCC chief recently said, while addressing a public meeting at Raipur-Domana today.
“While Congress is emerging as a strong force in Kashmir and Ladakh regions, Jammu continues to be its stronghold”, he said adding; “Our party has emerged as the largest political force in the state and has the potential to form the next government on its own or lead the next government”.
Soz said BJP has become irrelevant in Jammu region because of its wrong policies and failure to respect the mandate of the people. “It is the Congress party alone which is emerging as the only choice of people of this region, although party is emerging stronger in Kashmir valley as well as Ladakh region”.
He urged upon the people to give a decisive mandate in favour of Congress as it can ensure the unity and integrity of the state and translate the aspirations of each region.
He said the Coordination Committee of NC-Congress has arrived at a consensus to hold the elections to the Municipal Corporations and Urban Local Bodies before the end of June, this year.
Soz urged the partymen to elect good candidates in the upcoming elections. “The party would select right candidates for the purpose based on the feedback from party workers and the people”.
He said the previsions of 73rd Amendment of the Constitution of India would be incorporated in J&K state Panchayat Raj Act to further empower the Panchayats. He said follow-up action on the issue is expected within a week.
Minister for PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control Sham Lal Sharma, Minister for Housing and Horticulture Raman Bhalla, Senior Vice President PCC Dharam Pal Sharma, Muzaffar Parray-MLC, Thakur Hari Singh, RS Chib, Ghulam Nabi Monga-MLC, Ravinder Sharma-MLC were among the prominent leaders present on the occasion.
