‘Apni Party wants real empowerment of people in J&K through restoration of Statehood’
Srinagar: Apni Party president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Sunday said that his party is desirous of real empowerment of the people in Jammu and Kashmir through restoration of Statehood.
Bukhari was addressing the Party’s campaign convention for DDC elections at Gund Mashar-Lolab in district Kupwara. He was flanked by Apni Party Senior Vice President Ghulam Hassan Mir, District President Kupwara Raja Manzoor, Party’s contesting candidate from Rajwar Abdul Rashid Bhat, Party’s contesting candidate from Sogam Block Abdul Rahim Wani, party leaders advocate Javed Mir and Bilal Arif.
“Turning J&K State into a Union Territory has completely disempowered its people. The political philosophy that formed the edifice of the Apni Party’s agenda encompasses the true empowerment of people through restoration of Statehood and legal safeguards for their land and jobs,” the Apni Party president reiterated.
He said the political empowerment of the people goes through the route of socio-economic development. “In order to address the alienation among people, the Statehood should be restored to J&K with dignity and honour. The Apni Party is committed to strive for this goal along with the Domicile Laws for protection of land and jobs,” Bukhari added.
