Yogesh Sawhney urged fellow attendees to face matters head on and take critical issues into their hands. He said that Congress leaders will work to create awareness among public and provide help wherever possible especially by urging the government to open its eyes towards its own blunders.
Hari Singh Chib and Udey Bhanu Chib said that dismantling of Jammu and Kashmir’s edifice into two separate Union territories was criticized as a blatantly unilateral decision.
