Srinagar: Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari on Sunday hopes that the G20 Tourism Working Group meeting which is going to be held here will have a positive impact on Jammu and Kashmir tourism.
“We hope that the G20 meeting being held in Kashmir will be conducted on a good note and a good number of delegates will come to attend it”, Bukhari told media persons in Srinagar on Sunday.
He said there is no place better than Kashmir where a meeting regarding promotion of tourism could be held.
He hoped that the meet would see the foreign tourists who were not visiting here due to advisories issued by some countries and will ensure their visit so that Jammu and Kashmir tourism will get benefitted.
In reply to a question that Pakistan is pushing countries not to participate in the G20 meeting Bukhari said that “I am not representing Pakistan…I can talk of my country”. He said Pakistan participated in the recently held Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Goa.
Regarding Congress party’s win in Karnataka elections, Bukhari said “where ever the elections are being held democracy wins…political parties will come and go or change”.
He said “if Apni party wins the elections in Jammu and Kashmir will look after the people’s miseries in a better way”.
He said the past coalition governments did nothing for Jammu and Kashmir so far since 2002 as it was never in the interest of the people.
He claimed that his party has the support of the people both in Jammu and in Kashmir valley and hoped people would vote for him to form a strong government.
