hairman DPAP, Ghulam Nabi Azad Monday addressed a mammoth crowd at the public meeting in Kalakote, Rajouri. He fervently appealed for peace and unity while committing to fostering job opportunities and development, drawing parallels to his impactful tenure as Chief Minister.

He said, “If you believe my government was the best in last 75 yrs, then lend me your support. Together, we can achieve even greater milestones, including the creation of more jobs, roads, hospitals, bridges, and provisions such as free electricity for the needy.” Azad expressed his commitment to addressing poverty and ensuring access to essential services. He emphasized, “Despite my efforts, poverty still persists, and many struggle to afford electricity bills.
Therefore, if entrusted with power, we will provide free electricity to those in need.” Azad reaffirmed his commitment to reinstating the Roshni scheme, citing its significant benefits for the underprivileged. He said, While acknowledging any misuse of the scheme, the government should have taken appropriate action. However, the scheme has undeniably uplifted many impoverished families.” Azad also highlighted his party’s stance on land eviction orders, stating, “We vehemently protested against such orders to ensure that no poor person would be adversely affected. Our priority is to safeguard the rights and welfare of poor and needy.” Azad emphasized the importance of Hindu-Muslim unity and urged public to support leaders who prioritize humanity and development for all, regardless of religion or caste.
Azad remarked, “In a hospital, we do not inquire about the religion or caste of the blood we need. Similarly, why should we divide people based on such distinctions during elections? I vow to never discriminate and work tirelessly for the progress and upliftment of all.” Among others who were present in the meeting were Vice chairman Mr. GM Saroori, General secretary RS Chib, Gen Sec Anita Thakur, Chief spokesperson Salman Nizami, state secretary Sunita Arora.
