SAMBA: Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari has expressed concern over underdevelopment and poor basic amenities in Sarore area of Samba District while questioning the claims of development in Jammu.
In a statement to the press, Altaf Bukhari said that “There is no development in Jammu nor in Kashmir. The condition of roads is worse, the people are suffering because of unscheduled power cuts amid soaring temperature and clean drinking water supply in many parts of Samba District is still not provided.”
Bukhari was speaking at one day Schedule Caste Convention which was organized by District President, Samba, Apni Party, Raman Thappa and senior ST leader Saleem Choudhary at Sarore in Samba District.
Senior Vice President Ghulam Hassan Mir, Vice President Aijaz Ahmed Khan, Vice President Choudhry Zulfikar Ali, Provincial President Jammu Manjit Singh, Provincial Secretary Dr Rohit Gupta, J&K Trade Union President Ajaz Kazmi and others attended the convention.
Bukhari said that the claims being made by some people that development is taking place in Jammu is misleading to create further division between the two regions of Jammu and Kashmir and such claims need to be exposed for the unity and development of the erstwhile State.
“Apni Party will expose those who create division with factually incorrect claims and mislead people of one region against the other. The Apni Party will not tolerate further division of J&K and it has resolved to fight for the unity of both the region and brotherhood,” he added.
“Administration and police must ensure smooth seasonal migration to the upper reaches,” he demanded. He said that the Apni Party supports the political reservation of nomads for their social, political and economic development.
