Echoing the sentiments of the functionaries, Sagar said, “Public interest is sacrosanct to us. Our party has seen high and lows since its inception. The current times require us to strengthen our ranks and steadfastly continue with highlighting the issues confronted by the people.”
Concurring with the views of the functionaries, Sagar said the incumbent administration is setting an unprecedented example by being selective in providing security to the political workers and activists across the board.
Addressing the functionaries, Nasir Aslam Wani said, “NC has always taken a leading role in tackling the challenges posed before Jammu, and Kashmir, and Ladakh. We have to question the government on inflation, unemployment, inflation, and also register people’s grievances at all levels.”
He said the biggest asset and the legacy of the party is its immense faith in unity in diversity, which it has demonstrated during most testing times of its history. “Sher-e-Kashmir Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah kept the torch of secularism aflame all his life and the National Conference does not need anybody’s certificate for its secular credentials.
Communal harmony and brotherhood have long been the mainstay of culture of J&K. NC in its humble ways has been leaving no stone unturned to cherish and protect this priced heirloom of ours,” he said.
