PAGD parties finding ways to get rid of each other: Altaf Bukhari

Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari Monday said that the political parties in Peoples’ Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) had been finding ways to get rid of each other following the District Development Council (DDC) polls in J&K.

A statement of Apni Party issued here said that Bukhari while addressing several delegations from Jammu region including Wadwan in Kishtwar and Rajouri district said that truth had come to the fore post DDC polls while referring to the political parties in PAGD.

“The PAGD leaders have been finding ways to get rid of each other after the DDC polls. They had created a smoky screen before the public to mislead them but they have exposed themselves,” Bukhari said in the statement. He said that the political parties who had joined hands in PAGD had failed to keep up their promises made with the people in DDC polls.

“They have misled the people and now they are not able to fulfill their promises. To avoid embarrassing situations, they are hiding from the people,” Bukhari said.  “On the contrary, Apni Party contested elections in the name of development, restoration of statehood, employment, protection of land and jobs for locals in J&K.” He said Apni Party never played divisive politics and wants unity of J&K and brotherhood among the community for a prosperous society.

Bukhari also welcomed the new entrants in the party including Retired Deputy Director, Indian System Medicine (ISM), Rohit Gupta who joined Apni Party in presence.
