In a statement issued to news agency Kashmir Dot Com (KDC), former legislator and senior PC leader Nizam-ud-din Bhat said that this has been a standard practice of the welfare state to show compassion and empathy on such occasions. He underlined the importance of youth and their involvement in their own upliftment and said that measures needed to be taken by government to empower them so that they could play a vital role in ending decades of uncertainty and chaos while bringing in a new dawn of prosperity and everlasting peace.
Bhat has urged the government of India to set free the youth of Jammu and Kashmir so that a positive message is sent out to the fraternity on the occasion of Deepawali and that such measures would contribute to making the young minds understand that they can claim ownership and avail the opportunities for their growth in an atmosphere of liberty.
On behalf of the Peoples Conference, he extended felicitations to the Hindu brethren on the occasion of Deepawali and sought their support to bring peace and tranquility to the troubled Jammu and Kashmir,” Bhat said. (KDC)
