Bukhari said that the Party’s policies are being widely accepted by the people from all the regions without any bias.
“We work for the people of all the regions without any kind of discrimination. J&K has suffered from the last seven decades at the hands of the traditional political parties as the divisive politics gained ground with no development in the remote places,” he said.
He said that “J&K’s has potential in tourism in Rajouri and Poonch yet the Tourism Department has failed to explore the unexplored areas. Mughal Road was the main attraction for the tourists not only from J&K but from outside but the facilities which should have been provided by the Govt lack any vision.”
He said that Mughal Road is a major tourism hub and it must be promoted on the world map of tourism as it has picturesque views and lofty mountains and Mughal Sarai.
“The tourism department must involve the local administration and chalk out a plan to explore the tourist spots all along the Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch Highway and develop them with the help of Panchayat Members,” he said.
He asked the Party leaders and workers to work to upgrade the standard of life of the people in these twin border districts of J&K i.e., Rajouri and Poonch.
