Jobs, economy will grow if DPAP comes to power: Ghulam Nabi Azad
‘J&K needs visionary, progressive leadership’
Srinagar, Nov 09 (KNO): Democratic Progressive Azad Party Chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad today said that the Jammu and Kashmir is in dire need of a visionary leadership who can take it out of prevailing chaos and build it as an economic centre to expand job opportunities for its youth. He said the politics in present times is far more difficult in Jammu and Kashmir where no ordinary and tainted people can afford to hold the reins of the UT.
“What will they do if they win elections. They have no roadmap, no vision for way forward,” he said in a statement issued to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), while addressing a public gathering at Bandipora. He said if any immature is on the top seat of UT, he can create disaster politically and economically.
“We can’t afford to handover UT to anyone who is incapable of leading it. I feel for my youth who are the worst sufferers given the poor economic conditions and low job opportunities,” Azad added.
Azad said that due to non availability of jobs, the youth in Jammu and Kashmir are unable to shoulder their responsibilities. “Our youth are not willing to get married, they are not able to satisfy the needs of their older parents and eventually landing them in depression,” he said.
The DPAP chairman said that his vision of building Jammu and Kashmir as peaceful and progressive state earlier could not reach to its logical end since he got very little time to realise his dream. “But I am hopeful that this time you will give me chance to take further my vision and agenda for my people,” he said.
He said the projects he executed and sanctioned as Chief Minister shall be remembered for decades to come and have been proven instrumental in the economy and social growth of the UT. “If you support me I promise you J&K will grow as one of the richest regions of South Asia with surplus jobs available for its people,” he said.
