Farooq repeats: Pakistan occupied Kashmir will remain Pakistan's part

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 24: National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Friday exhorted women to gear up for upcoming Panchayat elections in a big way, saying reservation of 33 per cent will enable their larger involvement in decision making in the democratic institutions at the grass roots level.
Dwelling upon challenges confronted to the State, Dr Farooq Abdullah reiterated that nothing is going to change with the present status of Jammu and Kashmir. While this side of the state will continue to remain part of India, the PoK will be under Pakistan.
The National Conference President invoked the then Prime Minister Mr Atal Behari Vajpayee saying that the sanctity of the Line of Control could not be trampled by crossing over during Kargil incursion. He also referred to return of the strategically crucial Haji Peer, conquered in 1965 and said National Conference had not advocated for this but Indian nation as such took this decision.
Time has come when forces inimical to peace and unity are completely isolated", he said and urged the party cadre to work for forging unity and amity between various segments of society.
"Panchayats are key to political empowerment of women", Dr Abdullah said while addressing a day-long women convention at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan here this afternoon.
Dr Farooq Abdullah favoured larger role for women in shaping destiny of the society and the state, saying panchayats and local bodies' institutions could be catalyst of change in this regard. The women continue to suffer from discrimination and conditions were required to be created for their growth as equal partners in the decision making. A beginning has to be made by women themselves for their empowerment and economic emancipation, he said and urged the opinion leaders among women to fan out in their areas and identity public spirited candidates for the elections.
Dr Farooq Abdullah also referred to the plight of women in Jammu and Kashmir and said that the present coalition dispensation is depriving women of old age and widow pensions. The prices of essentials and LPG are increasing as a result of which poor were suffering hugely. He criticized the present government for its anti-poor policies and said that jobs have become out of reach for eligible and poor job-seekers. Nepotism and favouritism are ruling the roost, he added.
