PDP committed to work for political and economic stability of the state: Bandh
Jammu: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today felicitated Minister for Agriculture Mohammad Khalil Bandh at Party Headquarters here at Jammu today.
At a function, organised by District President Jammu Rural Rajinder Singh Manhas, the party General Secretary Ved Mahajan while welcoming the Bandh said that the formation of PDP was the first step towards legitimising political setup in Jammu and Kashmir, which till then was surrounded with doubts, distrust and uncertainties.
“People had a sigh of relief when PDP took over the government in 2002. The era is still being remembered as golden one in the state. We are happy that present Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is following the footsteps of her father and PDP remains committed to the vision and policies of our late leader,” he said.
Mohammad Khalil Bandh said that PDP is committed to work for political and economic stability of the state.
He said that people of the state have seen immense death and destruction over the past more than two decades and it is now time to put a healing balm on the deep wounds of the people and bring happiness in their lives.
Welcoming the recent ceasefire announcement Bandh said that both India and Pakistan should grab this opportunity and take immediate measures for the de-escalation of violence, opening of more routes, initiate talks with the stakeholders and ensure successful people to people contact on both the sides of the border and LoC.
“The time has come when the political leadership, armies and the civil societies of both India and Pakistan should pitch for sustainable dialogue and reconciliation as the only means to address the pending issues and save precious lives,” said Bandh.
