Slathia spells out role for youth in changing destiny of J&K
VIJAYPUR MARCH 17- National Conference State Secretary and former minister Surjeet Singh Slathia on Sunday underscored the role of youth in changing destiny of Jammu and Kashmir state, saying they have to take lead role in bringing about peace and strengthening unity which is under grave threat from divisive forces.
“Time has come when youth must give a united fight to all those trying to trample the time tested secular ethos of Jammu and Kashmir by sowing seeds of mistrust and hate”, Slathia said while addressing youth at Sehaj Resort Khod Slarian Ramgarh in Vijaypur Assembly Constituency.
He decried divisive politics, saying it has no place in a state like Jammu and Kashmir which is facing many challenges. He urged youth to meet the challenge posed by disruptive and anti-people elements that have left a legacy of unprecedented political instability.
“This challenge has to be met”, he said, exuding confidence that National Conference alone can fill the political vacuum in all the three regions and sub regions of the state.
He assailed BJP for exploiting the sentiments of people to further their political agenda and said the youth in particular have remained at the receiving end during the PDP-BJP dispensation, as the duo let them down on every front.
