Exhorting the delegation members to reach out to people, he said, “We have set about a greater calling to have the democratic and constitutional rights restored.

“Need of the hour calls for strengthening our ranks and taking the party vision to every doorstep. Our functionaries, delegates, and workers in Jammu, Pir Panjal and Chenab are committed and working tirelessly. We have an added responsibility of safeguarding the plural ethos of J&K.
