PDP schedules youth meeting on 16th September
Seeks permission from Div Com
Srinagar, September 16: The youth wing of People’s Democratic Party has sought permission from authorities for conducting a meeting of youth on 16th September.
The signatories of the letter are PDP Youth President Waheed ur Rehman Parra and former Legislator Ajaz Ahmed Mir and is addressed to Divisional Commissioner Kashmir.
The letter reads, “We are writing to you on behalf of the members of ‘Youth Wing of People’s Democratic Party’. As you are aware the prevalent political situation and lockdown that has arisen on account of the Covid pandemic has taken a toll on everyone, especially the younger people, whose schools and colleges have now been closed for a considerable period of time and even the social interaction is limited. As the youth wing of PDP, it is imperative upon us to step up and take the lead in strengthening involvement of young people at this time of crisis.”
“Therefore, we propose to have a meeting of youth, and needless to say that we will be following the Covid protocol, including use of masks, social distancing and use of sanitizers. By allowing this meeting to take place, you will also be playing an effective role in helping the younger people who are coping with anxiety due to lack of interaction amongst their peers and the sense of solitude amid the lockdown and political uncertainty,” it added.
The letter also reads, “Upon receipt of your permission for the same, we will be able to plan the event which is scheduled on 16th September. Trust you will facilitate the said meeting, which is proposed to be held at Party Office, Srinagar. Also direct JKP for same as the undersigned members continue to stay under house arrest. We look forward to receiving a positive response from you at the earliest.” (KNS).
