Srinagar: The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held a condolence meet at party headquarters in Srinagar to pay tributes to Bhupinder Singh, Block Development Council Chairman Khag, Budgam who was killed in an attack on Wednesday evening.
Recalling the great social services rendered by Bhupinder , the meeting described him as a selfless man who worked hard to bring relief to the lives of common people in his area. The Party paid glowing tributes to the deceased and prayed for his eternal peace.
Condemning the killing of Bhupinder the meeting termed his murder as dastardly and inhuman. The meeting also questioned the role of security agencies and the government in securing the lives of thousands of public representatives.
The government has all along made false promises of securing the lives of thousands of such representatives but failed miserably time and again, the meeting observed.
While it is unable to give security to the existing Panchs & Sarpanchs, how is the government thinking of announcing elections to add more people to this long list of vulnerable, the party asked.
The government that has acted in a partisan manner even in the crucial issues of providing adequate security cover to political representatives, by favoring a select group of parties has many questions to answer on this count, the party said. The meeting was presided over the party general secretary G N Lone Hanjura and attended by senior leaders.
