He emphasized on the party office bearers and workers to disseminate the Party’s socio-economic and political agenda on the ground.
Bukhari said that the membership drives should focus on mobilization of men and women at micro level to strengthen and expand progressive space across Jammu and Kashmir. “We need to encourage men and women from all walks of life to get connected with the agenda of our Party. It is our primary responsibility to carry forward our program to the grass root level with an aim to strengthen the Party and counter the government on different issues confronting the people across J&K,” he observed.

Apni Party President expressed serious concern over the sudden spike in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in Jammu and Kashmir and stressed on the administration to ensure that SOPs and WHO guidelines are followed on the ground in letter and spirit.
He also underlined the need for making Covid vaccine shots available as per the population and urged the Central Government to ensure that an ample supply of the vaccines is delivered to the UT of J&K along with emergency drugs like Remdesivir.
Bukhari also appealed to the people to cooperate and follow the COVID guidelines properly for their own safety. “Even if we have got vaccinated, we need not be complacent and should follow all the SOPs issued by the government in letter and spirit,” he added.
