Srinagar, Feb 11:
In a significant development, more than 100 Congress workers joined Peoples Conference in presence of senior PC leader & ex-minister Abdul Gani Vakil, said a party release.
Welcoming the new entrants at a function held in Jammu, Peoples Conference senior leader Abdul Gani Vakil appealed to the people to forge unity and join his party’s fight against corruption and dynasty politics.
“More and more people are coming together to fight corrupt policies & practices of NC & PDP. J&K has been in a state of changelessness for the past 7 decades. It is time like-minded and change oriented people join hands to rid J&K of corruption & dynasty rule.” Vakil said
Vakil said that corruption is one of the major factors in distancing youth from mainstream politics. The political culture of brazen corruption has created a sense of gloom and despondency in the state, especially in the youth.
“The brazen patronage to nepotism, corruption and back door entries has undermined and alienated hardworking and educated youth of Kashmirwhile giving a free hand to radical forces who have used it effectively to exploit local sentiments.”
