OVER 100 NC, PDP WORKERS FROM SONWAR JOIN PEOPLES CONFERENCE: SPOKESMAN
Srinagar: More than a hundred prominent National Conference and PDP workers from Sonwar joined Peoples Conference (PC) in Srinagar on Sunday, said a party spokesman, in a statement.
PC chairman Sajad Gani Lone while welcoming the new entrants into the “caravan of change” said the party is emerging as a “strong and valiant pro-Kashmir and pro-people political alternative” to the traditional family parties, said the spokesman.
“The people of Srinagar have been pushed against the wall and are facing a reign of economic persecution. The governance deficit in the previous regimes is responsible for economic dissatisfaction and political alienation in Kashmir. There are growing rumblings of discontent with the two parties. Now people of the state are yearning for change, they want an alternative to NC & PDP to take the state towards peace & prosperity,” said Lone, according to the statement.
Those who joined the party include NC Vice Block President Basharat Nazir Bhat, PDP youth leader Umar Mushtaq Mir, Halqa President PDP Shalimar Gazanfer Husain, NC Halqa President Balham Yaqoob Abbas, PDP’s Mohd Sarwar among others, added the statement.
