STATE TIMES NEWSINDERWAL: Communal forces will meet their waterloo in Chenab valley, said Senior National Conference leaders while addressing a public gathering at Chatroo in Inderwal Assembly constituency, during their first leg of four-day tour of the Chenab Valley, here on Monday afternoon. General Secretary, Ali Mohammad Sagar said National Conference has always believed in strengthening the secular ethos of the State and there are forces which are working overtime to destabilise the pluralistic equilibrium of the State and the party is ready to make any sacrifice whatsoever to ensure that the ethos of the State are not disturbed. He said deliberate attempts are being made to create fissures among different communities for vote bank politics in Chenab Valley but the people of the area understand these machinations and will not allow them to succeed. He said the enthusiasm displayed in the impressive gathering in Inderwal organised by Pyare Lal Sharma, the Constituency Incharge of the National Conference is a testimony to this. Sagar said the Atate is passing through a most difficult phase and time has come to isolate these divisive and reactionary elements who are against the unity and diversity of the State. Provincial President Devender Singh Rana said that National Conference is a force to reckon with, which is all set to give the State a strong and vibrant government on its own. Rana said, adding that the first and foremost task would be to assuage the regional and sub-regional aspirations and putting the State back on the rails of development and progress. He accused the previous PDP-BJP dispensation of derailing the developmental tempo initiated and sustained by successive National Conference dispensations. The thread left in 2014 is to be picked again to give momentum to development, job creation and instilling sense of security among the people, he maintained. Sajjad Ahmed Kitchloo called for a collective effort for foiling the ugly game plan of the reactionary forces, who have joined hands to destabilise the state by creating divisions among the people by vitiating the atmosphere. Former MLCs Brijmohan Sharma, Syed Asgar Ali and Rafiq Shah called for isolating opportunistic political entities, saying they pose grave threat to the pluralistic ethos of the State. Addressing the gathering, Pyare Lal Sharma said that people will reject the reactionary and backward looking policies of the BJP and support the National Conference leadership in defeating the polarising elements from the Chenab Valley.
