Apni Party president, Altaf Bukhari on Monday said that PAGD has not been able to clear its stand for what they are in the political struggle. He said that it seems from their actions that they have forgotten their pledges and promises to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Bukhari said that they recently participated in the opposition party meeting and could not muster courage to tell them that they should include restoration of article 370 in their future agenda.

Addressing a press conference here at party office, Bukhari as per the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) 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 would 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.
