Srinagar, May 12: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference president and Member of the Parliament from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah on Friday said the ruling party and its local “trojan horses” are unconcerned over the “miseries they have created” for the people in J&K.
“We do not find any mention of the fuel price hike, farmers' distress, development deficit and unemployment in their talks. It shows they are not worried about the people, but only want to be in power,” Dr Farooq said while interacting with the media on the sidelines of a function in Gopalpura, Mattan, a party statement issued here said.
The NC president asked the party cadre to keep their actions deeply rooted in the vision and ideology of the National Conference.
“Never step back, face the challenges with courage and faith. Our distressed people want us to strengthen our rows to come to their rescue. We have to amplify our efforts towards highlighting the public issues because no one is doing it. No one will. Our cadre has to work extra time and walk an extra mile to shoulder people's woes. Our ground cadre is doing a good job, however, the prevailing situation demands us to do more,” he said.
Exhorting the youth to “turn towards righteous deeds” and “perusal of the holy Quran and Hadith”, Dr Farooq said, “How can our youth take the responsibility of providing direction to our nation if they are not mentally and physically strong? The shoulders that would carry the responsibility of the future have to be strong. As long as our youth lack in competence, confidence, and character, they cannot shoulder the critical responsibilities of shaping the future. Therefore in order to become a leading light our youth have to enlighten themselves."
