“PDP leaders join NC in Poonch”
Poonch: National Conference today received a shot in the arm after a number of leaders from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) including block president joined party during a meeting held in Poonch, a spokesman of NC said in a statement issued today.
Meeting was chaired by youth NCs provincial president Ajaz Jan, said the spokesman.
The spokesman said that PDPs block president Nangali Sahib, Chowdhary Mohammad Amin Kalas joined NC alongwith his team of supporters.
The spokesman said that addressing the gathering, Jan said that a large number of political workers from other parties have joined NC in Poonch in last couple of months which is a very healthy sign for party.
He also castigated Government of India for befooling people of Pir Panjal region on the name of railway project.
"Railway line from Jammu to Poonch via Rajouri has always remained a dream for people of this far flung and border area," Jan said while reminding Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his promise made with the people of Rajouri and Poonch during his two rallies held in Rajouri and Poonch in 2014.
Jan asked GoI to finalise the process and to announce this much awaited railway line project.
