PDP President while addressing the legislators, district and zonal presidents of the Jammu, Samba and Kuthua stated that the party stitched the common ground with the BJP and formed the government in the state with a sole motive to respect the mandate accorded by the people of the region to the BJP. “While being in government, the PDP left no stone unturned to ensure that all the three regions of the state get equitable growth and development and didn’t allow any wedge between any of the region to take place,” Mehbooba said in her address.
She stated further that after the PDP assumed office, it prioritised its efforts to get the state out of the governance deficit and take up the protects that were needed both in Jammu as well as in Kashmir. “Jammu as well as Kashmir Valley witnessed a massive development in the sectors of education, rural development, construction of highways, roads and bridges, construction of hostels, colleges, establishment of two cluster universities in Jammu and in Srinagar, scarping of the stamp duties for women of Jammu and Kashmir and revival of the sports in all the three regions of the state,” said PDP President during the meeting.
She further asked the party cadres to work tirelessly to secure the state’s secular fabric from any assault and not to allow anyone to communalise the situation. “There are measures needed to be taken to make masses aware about the vision PDP has given for the state to restore its identity and foil the attempts that are aimed to tear is secular character apart,” Mehbooba stated.
