National conference working president Omar Abdullah on Thursday said a holistic approach was needed to create an atmosphere of lasting peace in the strife-torn state.

“I had told then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in a public meeting during his visit to the state that the people of the state were not looking towards economic packages but wanted peace in the region for endings for all their sufferings,” the former chief minister told several delegations that met him in Jammu.

Omar called for a multipronged approach and said regaining trust of the people and instilling a sense of confidence among them was imperative to steer the state to peace, progress and development.

Addressing the SC, OBC delegations, Abdullah said the recent issue of reservation had been taken by the party with the governor of the state.

He urged the workers especially the youth to play their stellar role and get involved in the process of holistic development of the state.
