Srinagar, Mar 2: National Conference President and Member of the Parliament from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said that his party’s policy is centered around bridging the gap between different sections of people irrespective of their region, religion or caste.

According to a press release, he was interacting with party functionaries here. Calling for strengthening efforts underway to get people's abridged rights back, he said, “We have to work together to achieve the ultimate goal of securing our abridged rights. NC will continue to strive for the protection of J&Ks land, jobs and democratic rights which have been undermined over these years. The coming few months are crucial; for the future of the politics of Jammu & Kashmir. It surely calls for hard work, discipline and unity."


He said this while interacting with a number of functionaries from the party's North, South and central zone units who called on him at the party Headquarters Nawa-e-Subha.

While interacting with the visiting functionaries, Dr Farooq emphasised the party’s vision for the region's development and protection of its unique selfhood and individuality. He exhorted the functionaries to work in tandem shouldering the critical responsibilities entrusted to them with a sense of belongingness and commitment.


Meanwhile, a delegation from Dodran of tehsil Bonyar met Dr Farooq Abdullah. The delegation brought to their notice the case of 40 families of Dodran area, where the government acquired land for construction of road under PMGSY, but even after 13 years, the said families have not been compensated for the land.
