Time has come to make right decision: Muzaffar Shah


Srinagar, Jul 19: Jammu Kashmir Awami National Conference (JKANC) senior vice president Muzaffar Shah on Wednesday visited Kupwara to express condolence with Mir Javaid (advocate High Court), former minister Mir Saifullah, Mir Abdul Rehman, Mir Abdul Ahad and Mir Abdul Samad, on the sad demise of their brother Mir Ghulam Mohiuddin. He expressed solidarity with the bereaved family.

In a statement issued, a spokesperson of JKANC said that following the condolence meeting, Muzaffar Shah visited various places in Kupwara where he held a detailed interaction with party activists regarding the party affairs and the prevailing political and economic condition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir.


Addressing a meeting at Fadarpora, Rafiabad, JKANC senior vice president Muzaffar Shah said, “Nowadays, from tea shop to newspapers to TV channels, everybody is discussing the government formation in J&K. The political analysts are of the view that there is a cunning war going on in State on ground level.”

He said the people are no more interested in who forms the government with whose support as they are now fed up of the opportunist politics.

On the occasion, Muzaffar Shah recalled the 2-year rule of the JKANC patron and founder Khawaja Ghulam Mohammad Shah during which the State touched the new heights of peace, progress and prosperity. He said the impressions of the honesty of Late G M Shah are still in the hearts and minds of the people as the Late G M Shah was the only ruler who did not accept the diktats and conditions for being on the chief minister’s chair and resigned from the post.

The JKANC leader said that after every six years, people get a chance of electing the right leader (representative). “But unfortunately, we don’t follow our brain and conscience but get swayed by emotions. People must go through the journey of 71 years and recall who has done what for them,” he said.

During the meeting, Muzaffar Shah urged the youth to follow the footsteps of the Late leader G M Shah who had given a roadmap for the equal peace, progress, religious freedom and brotherhood in all the three regions of the State.

He questioned as to what the parties which used to rule the most of the time did for the people. “If people have not realized it, the time has come to make the right decision as this is the age of educated masses,” he said.

Muzaffar Shah also expressed condolence with the senior journalist Khursheed Wani on the sad demise of his father. He prayed for eternal peace to the departed soul and forbearance to the bereaved family.
