Will continue peaceful fight for restoration of rights of JK people: Omar

Srinagar:  National Conference Vice President and former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday welcomed the restoration of ceasefire pact on LoC, IB between India and Pakistan.

Addressing the provincial review meeting of the Party’s Parent, YNC, Women’s Wing, and segment in charges here at party head quarters, Omar said measures will prove more beneficial to the people of Jammu and Kashmir than to anybody else.

He said the measure should act as a stepping stone for greater interaction between the two neighboring countries for the resolution of all impending issues between them.

Omar said the idea of struggle for restoration of rights of people of Jammu and Kashmir will continue to guide party’s steps in the future as well.

“We will fight politically, legally and most importantly peacefully keeping up with the founding principles of our party, which throughout the breadth of its being has not let violence, prejudice overwhelm it,” he said.

“NC is determined to fight for the rights of people of Jammu and Kashmir and will continue to strive for strengthening bonds of brotherhood among people and bringing about overall development in the region,” he said.

Besides party matters, Omar took a detailed review of the ongoing membership process across Kashmir province and the reorganization of party’s youth wing.

On DDC election results he said, “People across Jammu and Kashmir gave their stamp of approval by giving National Conference a thumping mandate. The results were a clear cut answer to those who prior to elections were making sweeping judgments on our party’s relevance.”
