Speaking on the occasion, JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir emphasized the party workers to gear-up political activities in their respective areas while vigorously working for resolution of developmental issues at grass roots.

Mir urged the party men to help people to get their issues resolved by the administration, as that, there was a disconnect to be seen between  the administration and people since the unexpected dissolution of JK Assembly, with the result Bureaucracy has taken over the entire system in absence of the popular Government, which was a big source of agony and anguish amongst the people in Jammu & Kashmir.

"Congress party feels dismayed over the setbacks to developmental process, rising unemployment, unprecedented price hike in petrol, diesel and other essential items responsible for pushing people towards economic crisis," Mir said.

"Unprecedented price hike has broken the backbone of common people, those living hand to mouth were not even able to purchase essentials for one time to feed their families," Mir added and questioned which kind of development Centre Govt was claiming in J&K and slammed it (Government) for playing with the emotions of people.

"Congress party won’t remain silent on people issues, it will continue to highlight and fight against the anti-people policies of the BJP Govt and appeals people not to compromise, rise to occasion to launch  peaceful protest against unwanted price hike, unemployment menace and developmental issues concerning J&K," JKPCC President said.
