According to a statement, on this significant joining ceremony, 21 councilors of MCA, eight Sarpanchs, 40 Panchs, three Block Presidents, 18 Halqa Presidents and scores of political workers from District Anantnag joined Apni Party.
Welcoming Hilal Ahmad Shah and his associates including 21 councilors and various Panchayat representatives into the party-fold, Altaf Bukhari said that Apni Party is committed to working for the equitable development of Jammu and Kashmir and would take all measures to ensure the welfare of the people.
“I am sure that the entry of such experienced political leaders into the party will further brace its vision to build a better Jammu and Kashmir through their sincere efforts on the ground,” he said.
Bukhari said that Apni Party doesn’t rely on hoodwinking the people with any kind of political gimmickry and instead it has always been working on the fulfillment of its commitments made with the people.
“The people of J-K always expected politics of truthfulness from their representatives. Our efforts are in that direction and we will surely live up to their expectations through our hard work, sincerity, and dedication towards the public welfare,” Bukhari impressed upon the new entrants.
On the occasion, the new entrants thanked the party leadership for providing them with such a platform and vowed to strengthen the party at the grass root level.
