Interacts with newly elected District, Zonal and Provincial YNC functionaries at Nawa-e-Subha

Srinagar, Oct 14 (KNS): The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Party President and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah exhorted the YNC (Kashmir) provincial, zonal and district functionaries to work with a sense of shared ownership of the party to strengthen its base.

While interacting with the newly nominated YNC Zonal and District functionaries here at Party HeadQuarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar, Dr. Farooq Abdullah stated that YNC is inseparable from the party’s parent body and that it has a prominent place in history as a springboard for the upcoming party leaders.

He said that having young educated youth in the party will help in the continuation of the party as a vital force besides making its policies more attuned to the aspirations of the young population.

His injunction to the party’s YNC functionaries stressed on increasing public rapport with a sense of ownership towards the party and its inclusive ideology. He asked the functionaries to guide the people about the looming threats to J&K’s identity.

Impressing upon the youth leaders to start a door-to-door campaign in order to dispel the myths conjured by anti Kashmir forces, he said, “YNC has a greater role to play to inform the people about the tricks that are being played on them day in and day out.  People need to know why the phenomenon of mushrooming of political parties is not witnessed in Jammu and why it is only in Kashmir that every day a new party comes up,’ he said.

Among others Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, Party Treasurer Shammi Oberoi, Provincial Secretary Showkat Ahmed Mir, Vice Presidents Syed Tauqeer, Ahsan Pardesi, YNC Provincial President Salman Sagar, District President Srinagar Peer Afaq Ahmed, Additional Spokesperson Ifra Jan, District, Zonal and Provincial YNC functionaries were also present on the occasion.

“Our detractors know that a strong NC means a strong front against those who want to annihilate JK’s identity.  Such forces have chosen to come before people in the shape of different parties, mostly one man armies. We have to caution people against such parties whose only agenda is to help anti Kashmir forces achieve their nefarious end,” he added.

Exhorting the people to open gates for women into the YNC Dr Farooq said, “We ought to have impactful women's voices in our fold to take on the challenges of the present and future. Utilizing women’s agencies in YNC will impact its outreach,” he said.

Dr Farooq said the political parties cannot rely on their opinions in policy framing at any level in the party. The top down modus operandi in policy framing, he stated, has no place in NC and for that matter in any democratic setup. For NC to deepen its roots ever more than before, it is imperative for our zonal, district functionaries to value workers, particularly YNC functionaries. He added that strengthening of the bottom-up model holds the key towards making the party stronger to take on the challenges in the future.

As far as NC is concerned, it is set to fight a multi-front battle, Party President said, “On one front it has to strive for an atmosphere, where basic needs of our people including development and job creation are addressed. On the other front it has to keep up its peaceful and constitutional fight for the restoration of peoples abridged rights.  Our party has long been associated with the real political aspirations of the people; people are looking towards us to protect JK’s cultural, social, political frontiers and cultural individuality as ever before. To achieve this goal, the party’s moves have to be marked by collectivism and better coordination at all levels.” (KNS)
