Senior National Conference (NC) leader and consumer affairs and public distribution (CAPD) minister and transport minister Choudhary Mohammad Ramzan has said that the NC had always protected the cause of Kashmiri migrants and initiated steps for their welfare and they should come forward and strengthen the party by voting for the party, which has always upheld the secular principals and pluralistic ethos of the state.
Ramzan was addressing a series of public gatherings at Jagti, Purkhoo, Nagrota, Bantalab, Dugra Nagar and Muthi on Monday.
Ramzan assailed various political actors for trying to woo the migrants, saying their vote-bank politics was getting exposed with each passing day and now the onus lies on the migrants to give them a befitting reply by casting their vote in favour of the NC.
"The NC has always stood for the unity and integrity of the state and also for sustaining the concept of mutual co-existence. Thousands of our party workers have laid their lives for the same," he added.
Appealing the migrants to reject the forces of deceit and division, the minister said that they were trying to mislead the people for their ulterior political motives and were trying to create division between different sections of the society in order to fulfill their lust for power.
He said that these parties were responsible for pushing the state into the decades of chaos and destruction and the masses should teach them a lesson by voting for the NC, which is the only secular party having the agenda of developing the state on modern lines and also ensuring sustained peace.
