Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and Member of the Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Thursday reiterated the party’s resolve to continue its constitutional fight for the restoration of J&K’s identity and rights.

He, according to the NC spokesperson, said this while addressing party functionaries, and workers here at the party headquarters in Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar. 

Among others, General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Chief Spokesperson Tanvir Sadiq, State Women’s Wing President Shameema Firdous, State Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar, Women’s Wing Provincial President Sabiya Qadri were also present on the occasion.

Dr. Farooq said, “J&K does not deserve pettiness. It needs wisdom and statesmanship. There are forces whose sole agenda is to dilute our identity. Unfortunately, such forces are inimical to the identity of our region and are using their local henchmen to pursue their agenda. The mushrooming of political outfits in the valley is also suggestive of the nefarious agenda of such forces as they want to demean and divide the voice of our people. We won’t allow them a walkover. NC being a single-minded assertion of J&K people’s identity will continue to guard our people’s rights, their identity, and their pluralistic ethos. At no point will we give up our struggle for the protection of our unique and historical identity? We will fulfil the promises and pledges given to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and will not retrace from them even at the cost of our lives.”

Referring to the administrative discomfort and challenges suffered by J&K people in the wake of the absence of a democratic government. “There is a government in place that sans accountability. People are enduring power outages of up to 16 hours a day. The dire situation has cast a shadow over daily life, especially as the temperature has dropped to sub-zero levels, making things more difficult. The population is not seeking free rations. Instead, they are demanding adequate rations. Surviving on a mere five kilograms of ration per head is simply not possible for our people.”
