Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 26: Democratic Progressive Azad Party Chairman and former chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday batted for special recruitment drives in Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the second day of his visit to Rajouri district, Azad expressed concern over the soaring unemployment, price rise and dwindling economy stating that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are facing multiple challenges as jobs and lands are being taken away from the local people.
"My party if elected to power won't be a mute spectator to the plight of locals and will take all political and legal initiatives to secure the jobs and land rights of people," said Azad while interacting with party workers and various delegations from Thanamandi, Kalakote, Rajouri city, Darhal areas of the district.
He said some regions like Chenab and Pir Panchal face more challenges since they are landlocked and are overlooked by the successive regimes with no job opportunities and economic growth.
"When I was heading the Jammu and Kashmir government in erstwhile state, I gave special focus to the region and tried to uplift it economically. Since then no one seems to have ever understood the needs and aspirations of the region," Azad said.
Azad said that the present governing system of administration has left the people upset in Peer Panchal region who deserve better governance at their doorstep.
He also demanded special recruitment drives in the area and said, "DPAP will restore the Roshni Act since its revocation had rendered thousands of families landless who even were possessing the land from the times of Maharaja's rule."
The people on the occasion also thanked Azad for raising voice against the coercive measures for land eviction in winters and said that his timely intervention saved thousands of families from becoming homeless.
He said, "as per the laws, those who possessed land for over 20 years should have been granted ownership rights, the way our government did but here the government is taking anti people measures and snatching it back."
Azad asked his workers to ensure maximum reach at the grassroots and make people aware of the party's pro people agenda since we have to fight long battles for rights and justice for the people.
On the occasion, General Secretary RS Chib welcomed the delegations who came from far off areas to meet Azad.
Meanwhile Sarpanch Yogesh Sharma from Rajouri and several social and political activists from Kalakote joined DPAP in presence of Ghulam Nabi Azad.
Among others who were present on the occasion were, General Secretary R S Chib, Chief Spokesperson Salman Nizami, Ashok Sharma Ex MLA and others.
