No alliance, confident to form stable government alone: NC
“Committed to Regional Autonomy”
JAMMU JANUARY 19: Exuding confidence about giving Jammu and Kashmir a much needed stable and strong government, National Conference on Saturday ruled out any alliance in the ensuing elections.
“Coalition culture does not suit the state like Jammu and Kashmir, which is confronted with numerous challenges with the people essentially craving for peace and normalcy, development and progress”, Provincial President Devender Singh Rana, according to a statement, said while addressing a key meeting of the provincial body and senior leaders, convened to strategies and draw a road map for the assembly elections.
Rana said the National Conference will reach out to the people with its plank of development, peace, progress, employment and the agenda of preserving the special identity of the state and satiating the urges and aspirations of all the regions. Regional autonomy, he said, is a way forward to fulfill the urges of the people and empowering them at all levels with opportunities to all.
Elaborating on going to polls alone, Rana said the leadership has already made it clear that National Conference will not forge any alliance with any political party as it believes the people as main fountain of power. He said the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh have realized the crucial need of strong and stable government as a dispensation on crutches cannot deliver on governance front, which has been proven many a times.
The Provincial President also reiterated the resolve of National Conference to offer any sacrifice for preserving and strengthening Article 370 and Article 35A, which are facing a threat from inimical forces, who have been engineering overt and covert machinations to weaken these constitutional provisions.
He said the people of the State, irrespective of their religious or regional affiliations have foiled all these attempts in the past and are ready to isolate proponents of weakening these constitutional guarantees.
