Srinagar: Dozens of women political activists affiliated with different political parties in Baramulla district joined the Apni Party on Thursday.
In a statement issued here, the joining took place in Baramulla district in presence of District President Shoaib Lone and others. On this occasion, Lone said that Apni Party has invariably recognized the prestige of empowering the women of Jammu and Kashmir and is committed to serving the society at all levels.
He apprised the new entrants about their duties and responsibilities which included working for the welfare of women folk and strengthening of the party on the grassroots level. He further stressed upon providing a proper platform to women to polish their talent, capability and intelligence and utilize the same in educating the womenfolk about the stratagems of Apni Party.
Lone urged the government to address the sufferings of HDF employees most of whom are women. “The HDF employees are contributing in the effective patient care in almost all the hospitals across J&K. They are waiting for regularization. I appeal to the Lt. Governor that till a decision is taken on their demands, their wages should be enhanced in view of the inflation and other factors,” he added.
Speaking on the occasion, the new entrants to Apni Party observed that they joined the party after being convinced by its agenda and the contribution of the Party leadership in the overall development of J&K.
“We found the Apni Party an effective political platform wherein the leadership has adopted a practical approach to resolving the public grievances. The leadership of Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari and his political vision is a blend of experience and conviction. His honest and pragmatic approach has motivated all of us to join the Apni Party,” they observed.
