Party on Sunday held a mega youth convention in Devsar, south Kashmir in which thousands of youth supporters of the party along with senior leaders took part.
Senior party leader Mohammad Sartaj Madni while addressing the convention underscored the need for the greater efforts aimed at addressing the growing alienation among the youth of the state and said that if immediate measures aren’t taken to address the mounting anger and disgruntlement sauntering in every street at present, the situation could prove more troublesome and uncontrollable. “The way in which the government is militating against the youth of the state, the situation has gone back to what was being witnessed prior to 2002 with nocturnal raids, arrests, tortures, constitutional frauds becoming order of the day,” Madni said.
The convention was also addressed by the party’s Youth Wing President Waheed-ur-Rahman Parra who stressed for the greater synergised efforts to strengthen the PDP further and make it a strong force in Jammu and Kashmir’s political landscape. He added that channelising the talent of youth of the state has always been PDP’s prime focus and that the party always remained in the forefront to address their concerns.
Among several senior PDP leaders, Block Presidents Ghulam Hassan Lone, Peerzada Mohammad Shafi, Sheikh Gulzar Ahmad, Ghulam Mohammad Mir, Vice District president Riyaz Ahmad Dar were also present on the occasion.
