Dhangri Attack: Azad meets victims

Jammu: The Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) Chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday said that the Dangri terror attack in February is a wake-up call for all people of Jammu and Kashmir and it shall unite us irrespective of our religious and regional beliefs to defeat it.
Azad visited the terror victim families and expressed his grief over the tragedy that struck them and unequivocally condemned the heinous act against humanity.
“The barbaric act of terrorism which took precious lives deserves the condemnation in strongest words. But at the same time, such acts warrant our unity above the case, creed and religion to fight
it back in equal force,” he said.
Azad said while many senior party leaders visited the Dhangri terror victim families and those injured in hospital, he couldn’t make it since he was not keeping well.
He said that when he was the Union Health Minister, he sanctioned a Medical college for the district, and did several developmental works as Chief Minister.
Azad said more initiatives are required to uplift the landlocked region and connect it with the rest of the country. “If our party comes to power, I assure you many such developmental works will take place. Because for me serving humanity is the only priority and that too without discrimination,” he said.
He, however, termed the spurt in terror attacks in the region as alarming and said that security of people should be the priority of the government.
Azad also met various delegations from Nowshera, Sunderbani, and other areas and sought their opinion to strengthen the party cadre. He said given the poor governance on ground, the people are opposing the local admiration and want an elected government in place after elections.
“If we talk about governance on ground, the local administration here has failed. It lacks electricity, water facilities in different villages and other basic requirements. So it is time for the elections to provide elected representatives to the people who can address their day to day issues,” he said.
He said not a single big project has been launched in the district in the last several years and what
is available for public utility was built up during his regime.
Azad said that the incidents of terrorism across Peer Panchal range must end since it imbibes the sense of insecurity among people.
Among others who were present on the occasion were, General Secretary R.S.Chib, Chief Spokesperson Salman Nizami, Ashok Sharma Ex MLA & Provincial Vice President, Riyaz Bashir Naaz DDC and Secretary, Ch Imran Zaffar DDC & Spokesperson, Choudhary Masood Secretary & WC Member, Zahid Malik Zonal President, Sushil Sharma Distt President, Arun Sharma BDC Chairman, Rajinder Prasad Secretary, Lovely Gupta Secretary, Khurshid Janam Spokesperson
