Srinagar, April 27 (KNO): Extending its reach across Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) leaders today held massive campaigns in major three districts of Kashmir region. JKPM leaders addressed various gatherings in Budgam, Bandipora and Baramulla districts and assured them full support from the party. JKPM leader Dr. Nazir Ahmad Lone while speaking at the series of meetings at Borwa and Khathier in Chadoora, Budgam urged the people of the State to guard their identity and culture. He said that Kashmiris are facing severest ever threat to their existence and survival in the hands of fascist forces. “The people especially youth must guard their identity and existence as some forces inimical to the autonomy of the state are hellbent to erode constitutional guarantees to the special status of the state,” Dr Nazir said. He urged the youth to strengthen the hands of Dr. Shah Faesal who has embarked on a noble mission to fight against injustices meted out to the people on socio-political and development fronts. JKPM leader and in-charge Bandipora, Dr Gulam Mustafa Khan during his maiden tour to Wevan area has said that his party will leave no stone unturned to improve the livelihood of the people of Wevan village which is a hitherto remotest and neglected area of district Bandipora. Dr Mustafa while listening to the grievances of the inhabitants said that JKPM vowed to ensure that justice is done to the people of the state without any discrimination and to providing basic amenities of life to the people living in remote and backward areas. “It was very painful to hear that people of these areas particularly Wevan village have no road connectivity, electricity, potable drinking water and proper medical facilities despite tall claims like "Sab Ka Sath- Sab Ka Vikas" by the previous state as well as the central government,” Mustafa Khan said. Dr Mustafa said that people of the area have complained that not a single local or public representative has ever visited this area except at the times of seeking votes. “It is deplorable that the populace in these villages have totally been neglected, but it these people recall the contribution of Dr Shah Faesal as the then Deputy Commissioner of Bandipora who had visited this remotest area and distributed solar lights, blankets, mattings and other basic facilities to the needy people.” Mustafa Khan added. JKPM leader Feroz Peerzada while addressing the people and party workers said has asked the youth to strengthen the hands of Dr. Shah Faesal for a fructify dream of a politically, socially and economically self-sufficient state. Speaking to a series of public meetings at Maharajpora , Sopore, Rampore Rajpora and Zaloora Sopore, Feroz Peerzada has assured the people that JKPM would render every sacrifice to safeguard interests of the people adding that time has come to isolate opportunistic and power-hungry politicians. On the occasion a large number of people especially youth joined JKPM and vowed to walk shoulder to shoulder with Dr Shah Faesal for cleansing the prevailing polluted socio-political mess from the state.(KNO)
