Doda, Aug 9: Democratic Progressive Azad Party chairman and former Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said that his aim of returning to Jammu Kashmir was to remove the miseries of people and build the Union Territory as one of the top economies of the world.
He said that most of the economic potential of UT is untapped and majority of its regions are unexplored given the tough and varied geographical terrain. “ If the resources and the potential of only Doda district is untapped and explored, it will create immense jobs for the local youth. Bhaderwah is known as mini Kashmir and I promise you if elected to power, it will emerge as an epicentre of economic activities,” he said while addressing a gathering at town during his ten days long tour of Chenab valley.
Azad said that after the tourists footfalls in Kashmir, it is Bhaderwah which attracts Bollywood to shoot. Azad addressed three public meetings, Pranu, khelani, and Bhaderwah which were attended by large number of people and scores of people joined DPAP and decided to carry on the party’s pro- people agenda.
During the meetings, he lamented over the successive regimes for ignoring the region and said that whatever he did as chief minister and as Union Health minister only that is reflected on ground.
“The leadership needs a vision and I carry that for my people. And that is why I gave up national politics and returned to my people to serve them,” he said.
Azad also addressed a massive gathering at Khilani area where hundreds of people joined. He said the people have rejected conventional politics and are fully aware of their rights.
“Time is gone when the people were exploited for pity issues and favours. Now people want change and all hopes are set on DPAP which encourages talent, handwork and honesty in its functioning,” he said.
Among others who were present in the meetings were G.M.Saroori Vice Chairman, Ab Majeed Wani General Secretary, Mohd Aslam Goni Working Committee Member, Rtd IGP P.R.Manhas Zonal President, Ramesh Parihar Sr DPAP leader, Asif Gattu Distt President DPAP and others.
