Addressing workers' first rally in Bhagwah block, after being given the party mandate in Doda, R&B Minister Abdul Majid Wani asked people to give befitting reply to all pisive forces and vote in favour of congress party candidates, so as to, form next government in J&K state led by Congress Party.Wani expressed hope that the common masses, this time rising upon the pisive politics of religion, regionalism and caste-ism, shall vote for development only. “People of the whole state have witnessed unimaginable growth and development of this state after Ghulam Nabi Azad took over as its Chief Minister in year 2005. Apart from creating unimaginable infrastructural facilities, all over the state, Ghulam Nabi Azad, also, met long pending demand of people by creating new districts in the state. Those days shall be remembered as a golden period, with respect to growth and development, especially by public of the whole Chenab Valley. Later, also, as a coalition partner, congress party legislators and ministers made it sure to continue the spree of growth and development started by Gh. Nabi Azad in the state as well as in Chenab valley region; whether it was creation of new administrative units, opening of new health centres, commissioning of major water supply schemes as well as new ITI/ Polytechnic / degree colleges/ higher secondary schools in the region.”
Wani, further, said that despite of certain obstacles created by few cabinet colleagues, belonging to the coalition partner, the congress party leaders were successful in raking up important issues related to poor community of daily wager employees and settlement of POK refugees. And, the next government led by a congress chief minister, in the state, shall settle these issues as a priority.
Wani exhorted the party workers to make people aware of the communal groups, their evil designs and mechanism adopted for piding people on caste/ religion basis. These communal forces try to create a wedge among Hindu and Muslim communities only to reach corridors of power. But, the people, this time, shall teach such forces/ groups a lesson and vote only for growth and development of this state as well as the Chenab valley region.
