Jammu, Oct 11 (KNS): Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari has expressed concern over the martyrdom of a JCO and four Indian army soldiers in an encounter in Surankote, Poonch.

“We express our sympathy with the family members of the martyred soldiers who laid down their lives while fighting the militants. Their supreme sacrifice will always be remembered,” Bukhari added.

He was speaking at the joining programme organised at Apni Party Office in presence of the provincial leadership. On his occasion, Advocate Vikram Rathore alongwith 50 people joined Apni Party.

Welcoming the educated class and elected PRIs into the Party, Bukhari said that the Party has been able to establish its strong base in Jammu’s plains in the short period of time.

“The joining of educated class into the Party is a welcome step. The people have showed their faith in the Party’s policies and agenda which advocates unity and equal development of both the regions,” he said.

He said that “We believe the political parties have failed to fulfill what they had promised to the people. They sold dreams to the people which could not materialized. However, Apni Party believes in telling truth to the people and lead them towards the peace and prosperity.”

While welcoming the PRIs into the party folds, he said that the panchayat raj system still needs to be strengthened on the ground and thee elected should be given due respect by the administration.

“It is highly condemnable how administration ignored the PRIs following which they resigned in Ramban district. The elected PRIs are the basic foundations of democratic structure from the village level and the officials responsible for ignoring them should be held accountable,” he said.

He said that “The PRIs works at the grass root level and barring them from giving a representation to the visiting Union Minister is an unfortunate act which is condemnable.”

Apni Party stands with the PRIs and for the protection of their rights, he added.
