Committed to J&K's equitable development: Altaf Bukhari

Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari Monday said his party was committed to work for an equitable development of Jammu and Kashmir and would take all measures to ensure the welfare of the people.

A statement of Apni Party issued here said that welcoming political activists from Bandipora, Pulwama, Shopian and Ganderbal into the party fold at the party’s Srinagar office, Bukhari said, “Apni Party has always shown perseverance in voicing the concerns that matter most to the common people.”

He said that the peoples’ trust in Apni Party and the confidence that got reflected in the DDC polls was a proof signifying that people of J&K were emancipated and could judge the political parties on merit.

“We abstain from the malevolent hollow sloganeering and absurd claims on social media,” he said. “People have reposed their faith in us and I am sure they will continue to do so based on our performance on the ground rather than the number of tweets per hour.”
