National Conference (NC) Sajjad Ahmad Kitchloo on Friday said the NC did not believe in blowing its trumpet in the media but focused on achieving its goals silently.
Kitchloo, who will be contesting from Kishtwar, said the people of the state would give a fitting reply to those who tried to belittle the achievements of the party.
He further said the coalition government, led by National Conference, had laid the foundation for huge infrastructural development in the state, which had become economically self-reliant.
In a reference to the 2013 communal clashes in Kishtwar, the NC leader stated that development work cannot be undertaken in an atmosphere of hatred and insecurity.
He said the party believed in the development of all communities in the states.
Kichloo also maintained that he had taken several initiatives to connect the remote areas of the state.
He said he would continue to undertake development work, especially in areas like Marwah, Warwan, Padder and Dacchan.
Kitchloo, a two-time MLA, was dropped from the ministry after the 2013 communal clashes in Kishtwar.
He was reinstated on the interim report of the Judicial Commission, which gave him a clean chit.
Kishtwar, a communally sensitive region, is one of the 15 constituencies going to the polls in the first phase.
