J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Tuesday that National Conference(NC) is the torch bearer of amity, brotherhood, solidarity, peace and inclusive development of all the regions and sub-regions of the State.
“You represent public aspirations, you are the legacy holders of the high principles preached and nurtured by Baba-i-Qoum Sher-i-Kashmir Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, you are the hope of people and your party NC symbolizes the State’s secular democratic credentials”, he told National Conference workers and impressed upon them to uphold these principles and work to mitigate difficulties of the people at all levels.
“NC and its activists have withstood so many onslaughts and challenges particularly during the period of disturbance, but it came out victorious and stronger for the fact that it lives in the minds and hearts of the people”, he said.
“Despite many attempts by some elements to weaken and damage National Conference even using force against its workers, NC has emerged stronger and firm on its principles, and its workers stood like a monolith”, he said adding that NC flag is up-mast in every village, every area and every region of the State vindicating the popularity of the party.
Addressing the office bearers of NC Anantnag district, Omar said that power has never been the objective of NC, but public service is the only benchmark of the functioning of this Party.
“Our only aim in politics is public good and prosperity of the State”, he said adding that NC has exhibited this trait time and again since its inception.
“You should make common man aware of the authority your government has given him by enacting historic Public Services Guarantee Act and Right to Information Act. You should tell them how your government has made them legally empowered to demand important listed public services in a time bound manner and question the government for its all actions and omissions”, he said.
He asked NC workers to inform people about the hundreds of development projects launched in the State during the last four and half years in all sectors of development.
Provincial President National Conference Kashmir Nasir Aslam Wani, District President Anantnag, Mohammad Akbar Ganai, former Minister Abdul Rashid Shaheen and various senior leaders, all Block Presidents and other office bearers of NC district Anantnag were present in the meeting.
