People stamped NC as a force to reckon with in DDC elections: Rana
1/14/2021 11:17:14 PM

RAJOURI, Jan 14: Describing National Conference as a pan Jammu and Kashmir party, Provincial President Devender Singh Rana today said its vast mass cadre feels proud of being the State subjects of J&K and citizens of India.
"If the people of this part of the country are not patriots then who are", Rana said while addressing a public meeting in the border township of Rajouri, first time after National Conference registered magnificent victory in the District Development Council (DDC) polls in both the regions with enviable striking rate.
The occasion was marked by felicitations to the newly elected DDC Councilors from Kalakote, Anita Thakur; Dungi, Abdul Khalid; Dhangri, Th Rameshwar Singh; Mogla Shameem Akthar and Peeri, Ch Naseem.
Rana said the DDC election results have served as an eye opener for all those who had written off the National Conference in the mistaken belief of having representative character. By rejecting them and restricting their presence in just four districts of the Jammu region with dwindling share of votes, the people have actually shown them their real place. Such has been the humiliating defeat for the BJP that it’s sitting MP of Jammu-Poonch Constituency and the State President could not save their home turf.
He said their rejection is manifestation of the governance deficit of six years and the hollow promises made with the people including their self-proclaimed constituency of Jammu. He lambasted the BJP for unleashing a vicious campaign against the NC with malicious intent of creating doubts in the public mind.
"The BJP has been trumpeting from rooftops about forming a government in Jammu and Kashmir and one wonders on what basis", Mr Rana said, asking if such a dispensation is thrust undemocratically, then it is different, otherwise the people have pronounced their verdict in the just concluded elections, which is hugely in favour of National Conference that has presence from Lakhanpur to Turtuk, Uri to Paddar and Poonch to Gure, he added.
"With continued support of the people, the National Conference will meet their expectations on all fronts, be it development or jobs to youth", he said amid huge applause and expressed gratitude to the electors for reposing their faith in the National Conference.
He also exhorted the cadre to reach out to the people and help in getting their problems solved. This will isolate the divisive forces, who are polarizing the atmosphere by creating communal wedge in the society. Jammu and Kashmir has to flourish as a pluralistic state, as envisioned and sustained by Sher-e-Kashmir.
Addressing the gathering, Provincial Youth National Conference President Ajaz Jan complimented the people for their sagacious decision of rejecting communal politics by stamping secular candidates and routing out the BJP from Pir Panchal region.
Earlier, Rana paid glowing tributes to Th Rachpal Singh, describing him as a leader of the masses. A 2-minute silence was also observed as a mark of respect to the departed leader.
