1 min read

Lamenting that successive regimes have ignored the erstwhile Doda district, Democratic Progressive Azad Party chairman and former J&K chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said that he gave up national politics to return to his people and serve them.

“Whatever I did as chief minister and as Union Health minister only is reflected on the ground. The leadership needs a vision and I carry that for my people and that is why I gave up national politics and returned to my people to serve them,” said Azad addressing a gathering at Khilani in the Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir during his ten days long tour of erstwhile Doda district.

He said the people have rejected conventional politics and are fully aware of their rights.

Azad said that his aim of returning to Jammu and Kashmir was to remove the miseries of people and build the Union Territory as one of the top economies in the World.

“Most of the economic potential of UT is untapped and the majority of its regions are unexplored given the tough and varied geographical terrain,” he stated.

“If the resources and the potential of only Doda district are untapped and explored, it will create immense jobs for the local youth. Bhaderwah, known as mini Kashmir and I promise that if elected to power, this area will emerge as an epicentre of economic activities,” he said

Azad said that after the tourist footfalls in Kashmir, it is Bhaderwah that attracts Bollywood to shoot.

Azad also addressed three public meetings at Pranu, Khilani and Bhaderwah which were attended by a large number of people and scores of people joined DPAP and decided to carry on the party’s pro-people agenda.

“Time has gone when the people were exploited for pity issues and favours. Now people want change and all hopes are set on DPAP which encourages talent, handwork and honesty in its functioning,” he said.
