Recalling the contribution of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in "setting new benchmarks of introspection, accountability and justice in the system," the party today asked its workers to revive the tradition and save Kashmiri society from "degeneration and impending disaster."
"When people reposed their faith in the institution of dialogue and reconciliation, giving PDP a chance in 2002, the party not only delivered on peace but liberated Kashmiris from the shackles of uncertainty. As the party has a proven track record of delivery on justice, security and peace, its efforts to lead Kashmir towards a better future needs to be supported and supplemented," the party General Secretary, Muhammad Sartaj Madni said addressing the senior party leaders, Ministers, District and Zonal Presidents of Central Kashmir, here .
He said that the political career of Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, the founder of PDP, remained full of challenges. "But his courage, conviction and vision helped change the course of tides," Madni said.
"Today we have certain negative elements that are prowling on everything, burning schools, damaging the infrastructure, and making people's lives miserable. Sadly, their sponsors and sympathisers don't have the moral conviction and standing to speak against the abominable acts that these ill-wishers of Kashmiris have unleashed," he said.
Speaking on the occasion, the senior party leader, Nizamudin Bhat said that "while we lay onus on society and its conscientious class to make an appraisal of four month prolonged unrest we the inheritors of an ideology are also ready to stand in dock."
