1 min read

Shopian: Apni Party (AP) President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari urged the central government to restore statehood to Jammu and Kashmir before the forthcoming assembly elections are held.

Bukhari was addressing a party rally at Keller Block in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Tuesday.

“Since the Union Government has committed that it will restore the statehood to J&K, it will be a great initiative if the commitment is fulfilled before the forthcoming elections,” Bukhari said.

Bukhari also demanded that the young Kashmiris who are currently behind the bars should be given a chance to get back into the national mainstream.

“Several youngsters from this beautiful place have been in jails for quite a long time. The Apni Party wants that these youngsters should be given an opportunity to get into the fold of the mainstream. We cannot overlook the fact that they are our own kids, thus, the Apni Party would suggest that the government should form a committee to look into the cases of these young people and see if they are willing to get a chance for a peaceful life,” Bukhari said.
