People's Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday said the just concluded Lok Sabha polls have accelerated the process of change in the state, and sought support from every region of Jammu and Kashmir to take the momentum to its logical conclusion.

"We seek support of every region and sub-region of Jammu and Kashmir to take the movement for change to its logical conclusion. Just concluded Lok Sabha polls have accelerated the process of change in the state," PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said while addressing meeting of the district units of Jammu rural and Samba here.

He asserted that the recently concluded elections mark a new begining for the state of J&K.

"Results of 2014 Lok Sabha polls have marked a new beginning for the state as these elections have boosted the winds for change in J&K," Mufti said.

"Residents of Jammu and Kashmir have accepted PDP as a viable and credible alternative of the present regime," he said.

Exhorting party cadre to seek mandate of the people to fulfill the unfinished agenda of sustainable peace and inclusive growth, Mufti reiterated commitment of PDP to pursue the policy of equitable and balanced development.

Stating that PDP has a comprehensive and visionary agenda for every region of the state, Mufti said being a strong, genuine and credible regional voice, his party has formulated a roadmap to address issues concerning every section of the society.

He assured that PDP would set up a system of transparency and accountability where every individual would get equal opportunity of growth and development.

Reiterating his resolve to facilitate dialogue between India and Pakistan to restore durable peace in this region, the PDP Patron said it was only during the regime of PDP that sincere steps were taken to improve relations between two neighbouring countries.

He, however, regretted that present regime headed by National Conference has failed to carry forward agenda of peace, which was started by the previous government.
