Srinagar /May , 20 : Former Deputy Chief Minister and Peoples Conference senior leader Muzaffar Hussain Baig has paid rich tributes to late Abdul Gani Lone, observing that 19 years ago, on this day, Kashmir lost a seer and an earnest political leader.
In a commemorative statement, the PC leader termed Late Lone as one of the few world leaders who never used to substitute words for actions and never sought the path of comfort for himself. He added that Late Abdul Gani Lone will continue to inspire the generations to come and his teachings will give us a temper of will, quality of imagination, a vigour of emotions and a freshness of deep springs of life. He asserted that the reason for such deep respect from the people of Kashmir for Lone sahib is because of the fact that his key priorities as the veteran leader remained preventing conflict and promoting democracy. He said that Lone’s dream was to make Jammu and Kashmir a place where individual rights are respected, differences challenged politically and resolved peacefully. The PC leader also paid homage to Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Farooq and highlighted his role in upliftment of society and making strenuous efforts for everlasting peace and tranquility in Jammu and Kashmir. “May the soul of both the leaders rest in peace,” said the party leader.
