Long term bureaucratic rule has stymied progress of JK, compounded peoples miseries: Sagar
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar on Monday took a review meeting of preparations afoot for the death anniversary observance of party stalwart and former General Secretary Sheikh Nazir Ahmed.
While chairing the review meeting Sagar said that late Nazir Sahib was the embodiment of the ideals and virtues of Sher-e-Kashmir.
“A strong spirited person he was! His contribution to the party is unparalleled. A statesman to the core, he stood for his principles till his last breath,” Sagar said, adding, the void created by his demise is unarguably hard to fill and his honesty and steadfastness, he stated would continue to inspire the rank and file of the party.
He further added that the anniversary observance day affords the party men an opportunity to peep into the live of this illustrious son of soil. He said observing anniversary is a means by which we all in the party try to rejuvenate ourselves with the renewed vigour and vitality to serve the people by strictly adhering to the party’s emancipative, inclusive and pro-poor agenda.
Keeping in view the present COVID-19 protocol, it was decided to have a small congregation of party functionaries at the graveyard of the veteran leader at Malik Sahib Soura.
Sagar said that the unrelated bureaucracy look without seeing, listen without hearing and proclaim decisions, changing people’s lives without taking cognizance of the wishes and aspirations of the people.
“The failure to give impetus to the infra-projects, ineptitude to cope up with the aftermaths of the rampaging two successive lock downs post august 5, 2019 has badly exposed the failures of coterie having their hands on the helm of power in J&K. The over centralization of the center in Jammu and Kashmir is “pushing one size for all” kind of measures with little consideration of people’s aspirations,” he said.
