Srinagar, May 03: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said once his party comes to power, he will bring the “revolution of development” across the Union Territory. He said all the people from both regions would be part of this process and avenues and opportunities would be created to benefit common people.
Azad said this at Aru, Pahalgam, in south Kashmir where he met various delegations of Ponywallas, travel agents, hotel association tourist guides and party workers who apprised him of their grievances, a party statement issued here said.
“The delegations of ponnywallas sought his intervention to urge the government to allow them to set up tents during the Amarnath yatra pilgrimage alongside the route. They said their livelihood is solely depending on Shri Amarnath Yatra and they deserve to be properly accommodated to earn for their families,” the statement said.
Azad assured them that their grievances would be addressed and DPAP will ensure that no one is forced to run pillar to post to seek their issues addressed if his party comes to power. “DPAP is imbibing the culture where its party leaders would visit villages and people themselves instead of people approaching them in their offices,” he said.
The DPAP chairman added, “We are meant to serve the people and visit them since we are public representatives. Unlike other political parties who hardly step out of their offices, my party leaders would visit you people in your own homes and villages,” he told the delegations.
Azad said he and his party is working to change the mindset of people who in politics think that they are above the common people. “Rather I try to make them understand that we are actually meant to serve people,” he said.
He expressed dismay over the delay in the construction of a hospital in the Pahalgham constituency since people have complained of sufferings in its absence, the statement said, adding that the delegations also told him that most of the villages in the Pahalgham constituency face cellular network issues, especially in Aru, and face tough times to communicate. Azad, according to the statement, told the delegations that he will talk to the concerned authorities and ensure their genuine problems and issues are resolved.
