Lauding the minority communities of Kashmir for voting in the first two phases of the assembly election, spokesperson of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) Rangil Singh on Sunday said that a visible wind of change has started blowing across Jammu and Kashmir.
Interacting with media persons on Sunday, Singh said that the party's resolve to empower the minority communities in the state, especially the Sikhs, is an unprecedented step taken by the party in the history of the state.
Singh said the Sikhs have made exemplary contribution in all the sectors of development. "They deserve multi-dimensional empowerment which has so far been denied to them by the previous governments," he added.
The fate of the people of the state in general and the minorities in particulars would be safer in the hands of PDP, Singh said.
Referring to different plans for socio-economic and cultural emancipation stated by the party for Sikhs in the state, Singh said that establishing Punjabi chairs in both varsities and teaching of Punjabi as an optional subject in schools were highly appreciable steps.
"The minorities in particular have been subjected to gross injustice by the previous governments," Singh added.
Singh said that the anti-people designs of previous "power-hungry" political parties have resulted in their total extinction for which these are "repentant".
