Fail to understand agenda of PAGD: Altaf Bukhari

Says it has given up on its promises, commitments made to people of J&K

SRINAGARAR: Former minister and Apni Party president, Syed Altaf Bukhari on Monday said that his party fails to understand the agenda of the Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) and asked whether the conglomerate has forgotten its promises done with the people.

Addressing a presser here at the party office, Bukhari said that the PAGD made high and tall claims when it came into existence, but the conglomerate recently participated in the meeting of nearly two dozen opposition parties, which later come up with the statement as well.

However, he said that the opposition parties didn’t even mention a single word vis-a-vis restoration of Article 370, indicating that the conglomerate has given up on its basic agenda.

“I assure people that whatever Apni Party has said, it is committed to that,” he said while demanding early restoration of statehood and also an employment package for the youth in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also hoped that the Supreme Court will give its verdict on Article 370 in favour of the people of the Union Territory.

Bukhari also demanded swift action against corruption and said that the government must start its process from the political class—(KNO)
