Srinagar, Dec 28: Peoples Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone Monday convened a meeting of the senior leadership and newly elected DDC members of the party for the first time after the recently concluded DDC elections.
He congratulated the elected members and stressed upon them the need to uphold the mandate of the people.
Asserting that this step marks a new chapter in grassroots democracy, Sajad said the newly elected DDC members should be aware of the expectations of the people.
“People have been away from political governance for more than two years. The DDC members are the first democratically elected and politically empowered representative of the people and they should go back to people with promises of deliverance. I expect them to deliver for the people of J&K in a fair, transparent and effective manner”, he said.
Sajad stressed that the need of the hour is to go on and use latest tools and technologies to ensure that our rural areas become islands of brilliance and the lives of the inhabitants of these rural areas are made better.
“These are challenging circumstances both politically and administratively. There was a lot of administrative slack even when we were in the government and that slack is still there. The other big challenge is to be able to navigate the challenges which will be faced by the entry of politically elected people into the arena of governance after the administration has had a free run for more than two years now”, he further said.
