Speaking on the occasion, Singh said that he joined the party since Ghulam Nabi Azad holds a strong political understanding and he can only take the Union Territory out of the present situation. He said, the way Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad worked in past as Chief minister of erstwhile state and as Union Minister in various capacities, he is hopeful of seeing the fresh dawn of peace and development in the Union Territory once DPAP comes to power under his leadership. Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad, however, said that if his government comes to power, he will ensure the equal development of all the three regions including Jammu, Chenab & Peer Panchal region. He said he never discriminated between the regions and treated them equal in all manners. However, he lamented over the growing incidents of violence and said that terrorism is in nobody’s interest while referring to the recent encounter of Rajouri in which five army jawans achieved martyrdom.
