Srinagar: Asserting that the main aim and objective of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was to guarantee peace and stability in the state, senior PDP leader Abdul Rehman Veeri said their government in the state empowered youth and was successful in withdrawing more than twelve thousand FIRs registered against the youngsters.
“The party accorded a dignified life to these youth who were bundled in jails and PDP gave them a reason to put their lives back on track and prosper. The fact is that PDP is the only platform that gave voice to the people by providing the only viable and credible alternative to the people of Jammu & Kashmir,” said Veeri while taking stock of the party activities in a high-level meeting in south Kashmir on Thursday.

Veeri said that the remonstrance by the PDP against any injustice perpetrated against the people of the state is known to all and the guiding principle set by party’s founder Mufti Mohammad Sayeed will act as a torch bearer for the PDP’s future course of action as well.
