DODA: Claiming credit for setting out Chenab Valley on the path of progress and development since 2002 after people of Chenab Valley reposed confidence in Congress Party, Azad said that he does not want to say that Chenab Valley has attained highest pinnacles of development during the past ten years but no one can deny the fact that a solid beginning has been made since 2002 and today it is on the threshold of entering into a new phase of prosperity and progress.
“I do not say that everything has been achieved but I can say with full conviction that it is Congress Party which has demonstrated intentions, will and ability to develop this tough region of the State”, said Azad.
Hitting out at the divisive and exploitative forces, Azad said that people are aware how the remote and backward areas were used as vote banks for almost sixty years by certain parties and it is only Congress Party which made sincere beginning to initiate developmental activities.
Azad was on a campaign trail in higher reaches of three constituencies of Chenab Valley, where he addressed seven public meetings at Kukerwas Saroor and Burdhar Bunjwah.
Urging the people to vote heavily in favour of Congress Party, Azad expressed confidence that he will be able to realise his dream of making Chenab valley a Model Region of the State.
He also said that while all the regions of the State witnessed unprecedented development during this period, remote, hilly and backward areas like Chenab Valley also came to be given equal thrust and attention in order to overcome the development deficit of sixty years.
“Today I come across statements of retrogressive, polarizing and divisive forces unsuccessfully trying to negate the good work done by Congress party to develop the remote and backward areas of the State like Chenab Valley and State of J and K in particular”, said Azad adding that people of the remote and far flung areas fully appreciate what has been the role of Congress Party in initiating developmental activities after a neglect of almost six decades.
Castigating the political parties and leaders for using every possible method and mean to divide the people to gain electoral victories, Azad said that Chenab Valley will expose the nefarious designs of such power hungry parties on the day of poll by voting in favour of Congress Party.
Senior J and K Congress leader and sitting MLA Inderwal, Ghulam Mohammad Saroori also spoke on the occasion.
Mohammad Iqbal Keen, Akhtar Hussain Khurwaey, Shahid Rashid Mattoo, Chowdhary Issaq, Chowdhary Mohammad Shafi, Om Prakash Shan, Bashir Ahmed Sheikh, Mohammad Sultan Malik, Mohammad Iqbal Zarger, Youth Congress members and local Congress leaders were also present.
