Srinagar: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Thursday said that after the abrogation of special status to the erstwhile state of J-K, Apni Party raised the suppressed voices of the people while traditional political parties remained mute spectators to the then prevailing situation.
According to a statement issued to news agency Kashmir Dot Com (KDC) Bukhari said the people of J-K no longer trust the emotional blackmailing and false promises that are being currently raised by these political parties to lure people for mere electoral gains.
“If these political parties would have sincerely cared for the welfare of the local populace, then J-K would not have been lagging behind in developmental progress. However, Apni Party has stood firmly against the tide and became the people’s voice while the political leaders maintained an agonizing silence & forsook the people at a time when they needed them the most,” he said.
He also said that after the DDC elections were over, PAGD promised people to strive for reinstating the pre-August 5, 2019 position in Jammu and Kashmir but appallingly they have once again backtracked to their earlier commitment.
“These political parties have often made towering claims that were never meant to be fulfilled. However, they are acting complacent to its huge ramifications while blatantly playing with the public sentiments. Apni Party is resolute to bring in people towards the mainstream politics through propagating its development based agenda at the grassroots level,” he observed.
