“Despite the BJP’s malicious propaganda unleashed for the lust of power, the Congress party and the people of the country in unison shall continue to work harder to defeat the BJP’s misadventures and other conspiracies aimed at dividing people along religious, caste or regional lines,” he added.
On local issues, Wani said the Congress will restore the statehood to Jammu and Kashmir when it comes to power at the Centre.
“The statehood of Jammu and Kashmir will be restored when the Congress comes to power at the Centre. The Congress will fight for the prosperity of the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
