Srinagar, Apr 27 (GNS): National Conference Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal on Thursday called for immediate confidence building measures to instil trust in the people of J&K.
Kamal said this while interacting with the party functionaries, here at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.
It was promised that steps would be taken to restore mutual trust and confidence among the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said adding, “The biggest step towards bridging the trust deficit gap would be by restoring a duly elected legislature and a representative government in J&K. There is a loss of trust which needs to be restored immediately and for that, to begin with, the Centre should work for restoration of complete statehood to Jammu and Kashmir at the earliest so that other democratic exercises could be carried forward.”
New Delhi has repeatedly said that it wants to accelerate J&K’s development and bring large investments to the region, he added saying, “Denying democratic rights to people will foster greater alienation, which could trigger a vicious cycle and make the job more difficult later. Releasing political detainees will be another step towards rebuilding eroded trust.” (GNS)
