Srinagar, Nov 14: Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari on Wednesday urged the government not to subject the youth to unnecessary sufferings based on the past affiliations of some of their relatives with militancy.
“I urge the government and its administration to permit our youth to live with peace and dignity, enabling them to flourish in their careers. The mandatory verification processes for their employment and passport applications should not be impeded solely based on the past affiliations of their relatives,” Bukhari said during a public rally in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Wednesday.
He urged the government to stop subjecting people to hardships in the name of their affiliations.
“In certain instances, individuals are facing hardships solely due to their affiliation with Jamaat-e-Islami. I wonder why such actions are being taken,” the Apni Party President remarked.
“Jamaat-e-Islami should be granted the freedom to carry out its religious obligations without any impediment, and their educational institutions should be permitted to operate without hindrance,” he asserted.
Bukhari pledged to the people that, once the Apni Party gets the public mandate to serve the people, it will diligently work towards reinstating social justice and upholding the rights of the residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
“Unlike the traditional politicians, I am not here to offer empty promises or set unattainable goals. I will only commit to what I know and sincerely believe can be fulfilled”, he said and added “Today, I assure you that the Apni Party is dedicated to securing a prosperous future for the people of this region”.
The Apni Party Presdent said our focus will be on diligently restoring social justice and safeguarding the rights of Jammu and Kashmir residents, irrespective of their geographical identities as well as their political or religious affiliations.
“We know how to generate employment opportunities and secure economic dividends for the people throughout Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
He said, “I assure you that the Apni Party will never disappoint the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Reiterating his idea about the relation of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country, Bukhari said, “I say this time and again that Jammu and Kashmir is inherently meant to be an integral part of India. The resolutions to all our challenges will emanate from New Delhi and nowhere else.”
He urged people to cast their votes wisely in the upcoming elections.
The Apni Party President said, “This is your responsibility to reject the traditional political parties, who have been exploiting and misleading you over the years and decades. You must use your vote wisely and elect candidates who are genuinely committed to working for your well-being.” (UNI)
