Srinagar, Jul 14 : Reiterating that Kashmir is a political issue and needs political solution, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday stated that announcing mega developmental projects has never and will never help achieve any progress on ground vis-a-vis making peace permanent in Jammu and Kashmir.
A PDP spokesperson said one day convention of the PDP functionaries was held in Srinagar's Zadibal constituency which was chaired by the party General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura.
In his address, Mr Hanjura stressed for the greater coordination between the workers and leadership and said the need of the hour is to highlight the hardships being faced by the common masses of the state at present with no one in the power corridors to listen to their plight.
Mr Hanjura said it was the PDP that strived on multiple fronts to ensure that the people are not made to suffer and government is there to listen to their grievances and address them on priority.
However, Mr Hanjura said the situation at present is peculiar and pathetic with those at the helm least concerned over the plight of a common man.Mr Hanjura said that the situation in Kashmir at present is worrisome on many fronts than one and that a holistic and pragmatic approach is needed to restore peace and normalcy in the otherwise strife torn region.
'For that the best solution is what the PDP has been advocating since decades. Dialogue, reconciliation and confidence building measures will help bring change. Iron fist approach has never done any good to the people and such policy is bound to fail in future also,' Mr Hanjura said.(UNI)
