“Self- Sufficiency of the State is our Political Thrust Point”: Dr Darakhshan
“People of Kashmir have been exploited by politicians for the last six decades by different politicians and political parties of J&K,” said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing a district level SDP workers’ Convention in the Town Hall of Kulgam. After successfully completing the first phase of door-to-door membership drive in all the blocks of Kulgam district, SDP District President Bilal Ahmad Bhat had convened the Convention to assess the party’s Public Contact Programme of the district. Other leaders who addressed the convention included Dr Nissar Ahmad, Engineer Ghulam Hassan and Choudhary Mohammad Aslam. In her address Dr Darakhshan Andrabi said that the irony of Kashmir has been that the public representatives rather than addressing the basic public needs have been selling the sentiments to people. She said that the real issue of Kashmir is the issue of eradication of the politics of exploitation. “Politicians have given us nothing but deprivation of basic amenities. The myopic vision of our politicians has remained a barricade in our dream of self-sufficiency,’ said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi. She asked the people to go for a change and vote for development only. “SDP is the only local political group which has devised extensive scientific survey based economic reconstruction plan for the state targeted to the economic self-sufficiency of the state,” said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi.
