Chhari Sharif, Jammu and Kashmir, December 4:The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference’s scheduled meeting in Chhari Sharif took an unexpected turn as the initially planned meeting hall proved insufficient to accommodate the massive turnout of party workers. Midway through, the gathering shifted to an open-air area, where hundreds of enthusiastic party members reaffirmed their support to the party and its leader.
Former finance minister Ab Rahim Rather, addressing the gathered workers, expressed concern over unfulfilled promises post the abrogation of the state’s special status. He pointed to the prevailing political uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir since the events of the illegal August coup, highlighting the psychological trauma endured by the people. Despite the passage of time, there has been no noticeable improvement in living standards across the erstwhile state.
Issuing directives to the party workers, the senior leader called for a strengthening of the party’s presence in the constituency and encouraged holding meetings at the village level. He emphasized the shared desire of the people in Jammu and Kashmir to thwart the BJP in both Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.
