Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief has said that the party won't allow discriminatory treatment to any class of people based on religion, region or class to strengthen unity and integrity of the State.
Addressing a public meeting at Haritar, Sangrama in Baramulla district, PCC chief, G A Mir cautioned the people against the dangerous politics of exploitation on the basis of religion, region or any other class which is bound to bring disunity amongst the people and pose threat to the integrity of the State.
Accusing the present coalition partners of exploiting the religious, regional and other factors for the sake of coming to power, Mir said that Congress always respected the aspirations of regions and different sections of society to strengthen the bounds of unity and integrity of the State.
"Congress won't allow any kind of discrimination against any section of the society or class by the present dispensation. Congress party has always worked about strengthening the people and never allowed anyone to weaken democratic institutions of the country or State," PCC chief said.
He added that "Congress, being a constructive opposition, has always and would always work for safeguarding the interests of the people. It has remained steadfast in serving the masses to its best and will keep on doing so for better future of the people of the State."
Criticising PDP-BJP coalition for 'discriminating' against the people to gain political mileage, Mir said people of the State are mature enough to differentiate between positive and negative things.
"Congress fully represents aspirations of all the three regions of the State and is not like PDP or BJP that are confined to particular regions. The policies and programmes of the party regarding equal development of all three regions would remain unchanged," Mir said.
The PCC chief said that prevailing chaos in the State was the creation of PDP-0JP coalition as "people particularly youth feel alienated due to inapt decisions and wrong policies of the government."
Mir hit out at PDP-BJP alliance over 'indulging in politics of discrimination, communalism and regionalism', saying that efforts were being made to curb the opponents.
The PCC chief said both PDP and BJP won't succeed in their 'nefarious' designs. "Congress would continue its struggle against the wrong and anti-people policies of the Government," he said.
Those who addressed the gathering included Haji Abdul Rashid Dar (MLA), Gulam Nabi Monga (MLC), G M Saroori (MLA), vice presidents of PCC, spokesperson Farooq Andrabi, general secretary Shoiab Nabi Lone, district presidents Aftab Ahmad Beigh and Altaf Malik and block presidents.
