Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday highlighted the sacrifices made by the National Conference (NC) and its leadership in the interests of people of the state.


"The NC and its activists have withstood many onslaughts and challenges, particularly during the period of disturbance, but it came out victorious and stronger for the fact that it lives in the minds and hearts of the people," he said and asked the workers to nurture high principles of the NC and stand for the public cause.

"In spite of many attempts by some elements to weaken the NC by using force against its workers, it has emerged stronger and firmer on its principles, and its workers stood like a monolith," the NC working president said, adding that the party's flag was flying high in every village, area and region of the state vindicating the popularity of the party.

Addressing the office-bearers of the Anantnag district unit here, the chief minister said gaining power had never been the NC's objective. "Public service is the only benchmark of the party's functioning."

Abdullah added that the NC was the torchbearer of amity, brotherhood, solidarity, peace and inclusive development of all regions of the state.
