Jammu and Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief G A Mir here on Friday claimed that Congress party always remained steady on its principals of secularism, equality for all as well as equitable development of all the three regions of the state.

Addressing a meeting of the party leaders and delegates here at party headquarters, Mir claimed, “Winds of change are blowing in Kashmir and Jammu region and Congress is emerging as a first choice in three regions of the state in view of the consistency in its policy and secular credentials.”

 JKPCC chief expressed that the people in both the regions of Jammu   as well as Kashmir feel cheated from their respective parties whom they voted to majority in 2014 elections.

 He said BJP in Jammu region and PDP in Kashmir having opposite, contrary slogans and agenda had no mandate to join hands but they did so against the wishes of the people. 

“Still people expected them to deliver and come up to their expectations, which they utterly failed because of inherent contradictions,” said Mir. 

 He alleged  BJP , PDP divided the people on regional ,religious lines and vitiated the overall social and secular atmosphere besides failure to deal with the security environment, finally left a state of political uncertainty. 

 Mir lauded the efforts of the Governor’s administration for bringing the administration on rails and initiatives for ULB and panchayat elections.

He exhorted party workers to strengthen the booth units and gear up for all kinds of electoral battles in near future. 

Addressing the gathering MLA Inderwa,l G M Saroori  alleged erstwhile PDP-BJP government for creating a mess of the whole situation and worst ever misrule in the history of the state. He said that PDP-BJP created controversies which left the state divided on religious and regional lines. 

JKPCC vice-president, Mula Ram in his address appreciated the people of Inderwal for reposing faith in Congress party.

Speaking on the occasion, JKPCC senior leader and former minister Raman Bhalla alleged 2014 elections were held in a totally polarized atmosphere and the BJP exploited the religious emotions of people but totally surrendered for the hunger of power. “People saw real face of BJP when it came to power after total surrender of their agenda,” added Bhalla.

JKPCC chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma, general secretary Manmohan Singh, Haider Sheikh, DCC presidents Kishtwar Mohinder Parihar, Hari Singh Chib, Rangil Singh, Chowdhary Farooq, Suman Bhandari, Gulam Qadir Sheikh, Asgar, Sewa Ram, Noor Hussain, Chaman Lal and Sultan  also spoke on the occasion.
