Welcoming Sheikh Muhammad Imran into the party fold, Lone said that his joining will strengthen the party in Srinagar.
“Imran is a young and dynamic entrepreneur. He is a self-made man in politics. He has strived and made himself heard by the dint of his dynamism. His joining will immensely strengthen Peoples Conference in Srinagar,” Lone said.
Speaking on the occasion, Imran Reza Ansari said that PC’s Mayor and Deputy Mayor would strive hard to usher an era of much-needed development in Srinagar. He said PC would tirelessly work towards restoring pristine glory of Srinagar which has been neglected by successive regimes of the state.
Mayor Srinagar Junaid Azim Mattoo said that PC has now become the single largest party in SMC. “This joining is good news for Srinagar and will usher in an era of change and development,” he said.
On the occasion Sheikh Muhammad Imran said that he will strive hard to strengthen PC in Srinagar.
“In my short political career, I have come across all major political parties in J&K and found Peoples Conference most welcoming, with down to earth leadership and sense of camaraderie in the party,” he said.
