Addressing the meetings, Mir has said that Congress is a vibrant situation in the State expressing confidence that people in all the three regions of the State have full faith in the progammes and polices of the Congress Party, for the fact, Congress has always taken care of urges and aspirations of the people and never indulged in vote bank politics for the sake of power.
He said Congress has always sacrificed power for people and it will continue to remain committed to address the concerns of the people in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
G.A. Mir took a dig at previous PDP BJP regime for failing to respect the mandate, saying that both the Parties played emotional cards from time to time and misled the people on various counts for the sake of coming into power, but at the sametime, he felt confident that people of Jammu and Kashmir have rejected both (PDP BJP), he said.
Mir urged upon the party cadre to remain connected with the people on ground and ensure that problems confronting them (people) are resolved. He also emphasized the cadre to remain enthusiastic and committed to the cause of serving people to the best of their ability, for the fact, Congress has served the people and it will continue to serve them and ensure equitable development of all the three regions in the state.
