"Khansahib villages reflect 1947 Kashmir" SDP President addresses public meeting at village Hayatpora in Khansahib in Budgam today conducted door to door campaign.
“The villages of Khansahib area reflect 1947 rural Kashmir. The people in these areas crave for the basic amenities of life even today,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing a public gathering at village Hayatpora in Khansahib Assembly Constituency. Dr Darakhshan conducted a door-to-door campaign in the locality and apprised herself of the problems of the people. In her address Dr Andrabi slammed the district administration and the local political representative for deliberately keeping the villages backward to pave way for the political exploitation of the masses. Dr Andrabi said that the propaganda of development of Khansahib is all baseless and it gets defeated at the ground level when one sees the condition of the roads, water shortage everywhere and very poor electricity network in the villages. She accused the local administration of playing in the hands of the local political representatives. While speaking on the occasion Dr Darakhshan Andrabi said that the people of the area crave for basic amenities while the whole of the Kashmir looks and thinks beyond these problems. She said that it was unfortunate to see the political goondaism in operation in the area to curb the freedom of expression and opinion of the people. She appealed to the people of the area to get ready for a political change so that the condition of the people improves and the freedom from the sinister politics is ascertained. Dr Andrabi said that she had now taken up the mission of redeeming people of the parochial politics and giving them a politics of honesty and public service.
