Ali Muhammad Sagar asks party functionaries to work in tandem
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar, on Wednesday exhorted party functionaries to work in tandem towards making party stronger at grass root level in order to take on the imminent challenges to the people of J&K.
Addressing party’s parent body, YNC and Women’s Wing functionaries here at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Party General Secretary stressed on the party functionaries to raise issues of public importance in their respective segments, blocks and Halqas.
Sagar said the political parties cannot rely on their opinions in policy framing at any level in the party. The top down modus operandi in policy framing, Sagar said, has no place in NC and for that matter in any democratic setup. For NC to deepen its roots ever more than before, it is imperative for our zonal, district functionaries to value workers. He added that strengthening of the bottom-up model holds the key towards making the party stronger to take on the challenges in the future.
As far as NC is concerned, it is set to fight a multi-front battle, Sagar said, “On one front it has to strive for an atmosphere, where basic needs of our people including development and job creation are addressed. On the other front it has to keep up its peaceful and constitutional fight for the restoration of peoples abridged rights.”
“Our party has long been associated with the real political aspirations of the people; people are looking towards us to protect JK’s cultural, social, political frontiers and cultural individuality as ever before. To achieve this goal, the party’s moves have to be marked by collectivism and better coordination at all levels,” he said.
On the occasion, Sagar asked the zonal, and district functionaries to complete the process of membership drive by the end of this month, so that the party could go ahead with the constitution of party units across Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
The party General Secretary also restated his commitment on giving a more proactive role to the youth particularly the women in the party activities. He also urged the functionaries to ensure equitable representation to minorities, tribals and other underprivileged classes in the party fold.
