Srinagar, May 09: National Conference (NC) president and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah Monday asserted that peace is very imperative for development. “Putting the region back on the path of peace and development is going to be a long haul. It requires all of us to strive for unity. It requires us to converge our efforts. We have to help ourselves. No one would. Also we have to remain cautious of the designs of those who are hell bent to target J&K’s identity and diversity,” he said.
According to a party statement he said this during his visit to Sogam, Lolab where he went to express condolences with party’s district president Kupwara Qaiser Jamsheed Lone on the sad demise of his father Nazir Ahmad Lone, a party statement said. 
Accompanied by senior NC leaders, Dr Farooq participated in the congregational Fateha Khawani at their ancestral graveyard in Sogam, the statement said.
Later he visited the residence of the Qaisar Jamsheed Lone and Nasir Lone to participate in the Duaiya Majlis held for the departed soul.
Meanwhile, senior party leadership participated in the congregation of Fatiha Khawani of the late mother of the party provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani. On the occasion party general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar presented a ‘Sipas Nama’ to the provincial president, the statement said.
