These committees were constituted with the consultation and approval of Party President Altaf Bukhari.

The committees were constituted following a meeting chaired by Apni Party Provincial President Manjit Singh at Vijaypur in which OBC State Coordinator Madan Lal Chalotra and State Coordinator of SC Bodh Raj Bhagat were also present.
Speaking on the occasion, Former Minister, and Provincial President, Manjit Singh said that they have constituted OBC and SC committees so that the neglected section of society can be represented by their own people.
“The OBC has a long pending demand of 27 % reservation in J&K. However, their issues are not being addressed by the Govt. It has deprived them of their rights,” said Manjit Singh.
Expressing commitment, he said that “Apni Party will fight for all the people whether farmers or students or unemployed youth. We do not do discrimination with anyone. We equally treat everyone in the society.”
Congratulating the OBC and SC committee members, the OBC State Coordinator, Madan Lal Chalotra said that Other Backward Class community has remained neglected for decades in J&K and their representatives enjoyed power by keeping their community in poverty and unrepresented.
“Time has come when the people will have to stand for themselves and there would be no scope for their further exploitation,” Chalotra said.
On this occasion, SC State Coordinator, Bodh Raj Bhagat said that the SC community has always been treated as vote bank by the previous Govts and the political parties have misled them with their hollow slogans.
“We have constituted a committee of SC wing and given them space in the part with a hope that the community will get their issues resolved. The Apni Party does not discriminate. We stand for unity and integrity of the country as well as of J&K,” he added.
Saleem Alam, Shanker Singh Chib, Sardeesh Rana, Panch Vijaypur Babli Devi, Bhagat Sain Dass, Bharat Bushan, Sardar Sucha Singh, among others were present on the occasion.
