Chairing a Provincial Level Meeting of Party leaders in Gandhi Nagar Office, Jammu; Altaf Bukhari reviewed the functioning of different wings of the Party and impressed upon all the leaders who attended the meeting to launch mass outreach programmes and public meetings in every nook and corner of Jammu Province.

He expressed his satisfaction with the working of the leaders and different wings of the Party which are active in all districts of Jammu Province.

He however asked the leaders to launch coordinated public outreach programmes and meetings to make people aware about the policies and programmes of the Party.

He lauded the role of the Party leaders of Jammu Province for highlighting the public issues and getting them resolved by the Govt.

He directed the Party leaders to work shoulder to shoulder with the people of all the districts particularly in remote and rural areas of the Province and ensure their development related issues can be highlighted and resolved accordingly.
