BISHNAH: Apni Party President, Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari on Sunday urged the Election Commission of India to hold Legislative Assembly Elections in Jammu and Kashmir and the Parliamentary polls together.
Bukhari made this demand while addressing one day worker’s meeting at Bishnah. The meeting was organized by Apni Party leader, Ashwani Kumar.
“The Govt of India says we shall hold Legislative Assembly Elections as well as Parliamentary Elections together. Then, they constituted a committee, but declined later, citing various reasons for elections in other states of the country,” reminded Bukhari.
He said that “Five years have passed to Jammu and Kashmir without an elected Govt. Up to 2018, the last elected Govt was formed by the BJP in alliance with PDP.”
The BJP had contested assembly elections of 2014 against National Conference and PDP and then they formed the Govt with the PDP, he said, while asking the people if they saw any kind of development / employment in Bishnah or any other part of Jammu.
“The people of Jammu and Kashmir did not get any kind of benefit in the last 70 years, but the benefits were grabbed by the two families in place of the masses. However, now the time has come, when the people shall be given constitutional rights of the people in J&K,” he stated.
He further said that “The people of J&K will fight for their jobs in a democratic manner. We are a peace-loving nationalist people who never restore to any kind of violent means.”
He however congratulated the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister, Amit Shah for granting reservation to a tribe of J&K.
“Those who have objection to the reservation shall not worry about their issues because the Apni Party is there to support them. We will never allow discrimination with anyone,” he added, while seeking response from the Govt regarding issues of Dogra speaking belt in Jammu Region.
If the reservation can be granted to a tribe to address their long pending demands, he said, then why couldn’t the concerns and demands of Jammu Dogras, Kashmiri speaking, and other communities be addressed by holding Assembly Elections and restoring the statehood to Jammu and Kashmir.
Highlighting concerns of unemployed youth, he demanded five years extension in upper age limits to the aspirants of central Govt jobs / Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) in favour of the youth from Jammu and Kashmir.
To overcome the power crises in J&K, he said that the power projects shall be returned to the erstwhile state after 35 years of its inception.
Besides, he appreciated the people of Bishnah who elect their representatives wisely in every assembly election by going against the wave. He asked them to support the Party leader, Ashwani Kumar from Bishnah constituency.
