Jammu, Jan 28: Former Minister and senior National Conference (NC) leader Ajay Kumar Sadhotra today said that Present dispensation has made lives of poor miserable.

Sadhotra was the chief guest and former Minister and JKNC Central Zone President Babu Rampaul presided over. The programme was organised by Secretary Central Zone JKNC & Coordinator Jammu District Urban, Dr Vikas Sharma.
Speaking on the occasion, Ajay Sadhotra emphasised on the need to extend all sorts of help to the poor and needy people. He said, “National Conference believes in the philosophy of equality.

Speaking on the occasion, Ankush Abrol said, "National Conference has been doing social works from time to time and always remains on the front to help the needy persons indiscriminately."
