The State Assembly has been turned into a flop show: Dr Darakhshan

“The whole of the state Assembly session has been turned into a flop showperformance by both ruling and the opposition representatives. Shouting and hungama making is being done only to score personal political marks,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing a Press Conference in Jammu today. SDP leaders Ajay Kumar, Gursagar Singh, Sanjay Manhas, Kamaljeet Singh and Yousuf Rather were also present on the occasion. Slamming the role of both ruling coalition as well as the entire opposition, SDP President expressed her dismay over dirty score-making hue and cry by the legislatures on non-issues so far  as the public aspirations are concerned. She said that in a democratic system, the people link their hopes to the floor of the house for redressal of their problems but unfortunately our politicians have now nourished the habit of selling sentiments and making mockery of the public aspirations. Dr Andrabi said that the biggest issue of the J&K state is its six decade long ailing political system which has left a common man quite helpless and alien in its own land. Dr Darakhshan said that the people of the state in both the divisions are facing great problems and every time they look towards their elected representatives, they are let down. She said that it had become a fashion for the legislators to create whole lot of hungame in Assembly and waste the time and wealth of the common man without giving them a bit of relief and redressal from the problems. Dr Darakhshan said that a complete political change is the only solution where this old drama-making political system ceases to be and it gets replaced by a fresh new educated and young political order as this was must for the health of the state.

SDP President welcomes fifty new delegates into the Party
 “The people of the state have been deceived by the rulers of the state over the last six decades by selling dreams without letting any scope for their realization. Our political system has become a stingy pond in which no fresh water enters and thus it has started giving bad order,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing the public gathering at Bishnah today after welcoming fifty new delegates into SDP fold. SDP leader Peer Abdul Majeed Shah also addressed the gathering.  SDP General Secretary Ajay Kumar, State and Kamaljeet Singh also were present in the gathering. Many Panchs and sarpanchs led by Romesh Lal, Tarseem Lal and other prominent political workers including Ghirdhari Lal, Rattan Lan, Chajjuu Ram, Banarsi Das, Prem Kumar, Bodh Raj, Sham Lal, Ajay Kumar, Desh Raj, Tarseem, Chamael Singh and Bodh Raj were also inducted as delegates. Welcoming new delegates, SDP President appealed to the people of the state to throw out the rotten lot out of the new Assembly in 2014 elections so that we get rid of the exploitation by the old anti-people political mafia in the state. “The misfortunes of the people of J&K are because of our local politicians as they have exploited the people and fattened their properties and bank accounts by keeping people busy in exploitation. Enough is enough and now is the opportune time for the change,” said Dr Darakhshan. She appealed to the youth of the state to shun their association with these disguised autocrats and get freedom from the present ailing political order. Dr Andrabi said that the politics in the state has existed on only one agenda and that was the loot of the rights of the common misinformed or uninformed population of the state. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi slammed the present government for its failure in curbing the funds-misappropriation at the grass root level in all spheres of life in J&K.  “Our politicians are only the trouble makers for the people at large and their approaches and plans are consciously targeted at polarizing the regions of the state. They are the enemies of the state’s integrity,” said Darakhshan Andrabi.

“The hate game between India and Pakistan should end now”: Darakhshan
On Indo-Pak Love & Peace Day Darakhshan sends her Valentine Message to Pakistan

The inscription on the image read: “We salute you for the great sacrifice you made. We cannot tolerate the disrespect of our brave soldiers anymore.” Dr Darakhshan Andrabi sent messages of love through white pigeons whom she flew to Pakistan in which an appeal was made to the politicians and the army top brass of that country to kindly desist from using guns in Jammu & Kashmir and change their policy of hatred and conspiracies for the good of the people of J&K specially and that of  the populace of both the countries generally. Dr Darakhshan and her team dispatched five hundred heart shaped balloons across the border with messages of love and peace printed on them. “Ours is a people’s initiative and only such public initiatives on both sides of the fence  will be instrumental in changing the six decade old hatred and ultimately change the situation of misfortunes to a situation of trust and love,” said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi. She said that gun culture had ruined Pakistan to the core and the country was being run by the terrorists there making the safety of common man causality there. “India and Pakistan have faced the brunt of terrorism and in spite of targeting each other; we should join hands to fight the propagators and executers of hatred in whole sub-continent. That will be good for both of us,” said Darakhshan Andrabi. 

Raising voice for Doda Forest workers

                                                                               Dr Darakhshan Andrabi demands implementation of labour laws in the Doda Forest Division
                        Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi today addressed a Press Conference in Jammu loudly raising her voice in favour of the watch and ward staff of the Chinab Basin Forest Project of Doda.  “The watch and ward staff of the significant forest project has been deprived of their earned perks for months and years together by the forest department thus going against their own orders and plans,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi. SDP leaders General Secretary Ajay Kumar and State Youth President Gursagar Singh accompanied Dr Darakhshan Andrabi during the Press Briefing along with the Chinab Basin Forest Project Worker’s representatives Nawaz Ahmad and Ram Raj. Dr Darakhshan said that these workers had been rendering their services in different nurseries of the Project for the last many years now but they have not been paid their earnings since months and years together. Dr Andrabi termed this approach as the gross violation of the labour rights which has put these worker’s and their families into grave financial troubles. SDP president expressed her surprise over the non-implementation of the orders issued by the forest authorities regarding the absorption of this ground staff into the Forest Department and regularize their services. “While the department has already absorbed the other regular staff of the Project into the Forest department, the order of absorption in respect of these ground staff was not implemented on the reasons understandable to the common sense,” said Dr Darakhshan. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi said that it was a gross injustice on the part of the Project authorities to deprive these poor workers of the wages for so long. SDP President appealed to the Chief Minister to personally look into the matter and issue orders for the redressal of the genuine problems of these small workers on humanitarian grounds.

There is nobody to hear to the grievances of the common man,” said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi. She said that corruption is the order of our state which drives our working system. Dr Andrabi appealed to the people to use the instrument of Right to Information Act (RTI) to seek the information from the government regarding the implementation of the central schemes in villages and the working details of the developmental plans and works in the area. 


“The sacrifice of armed forces on borders should not be allowed to be made hostage to the weak political will of our country”: Darakhshan                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            SDP President unfurls Tri-Colour at Channi Hiummat at a public congregation today.

“The highest kind of sacrifice on borders by our armed forces should not be allowed to be made hostage to the weak political will of our country,” said Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi while addressing the public gathering at Radha Krishen Mandir Chowk in Channi Himmat today after unfurling the Tri-Colour at a glorious function held by SDP.

Dr Andrabi said that as a country we still lack the patriotic political strength to deal with the honour of our valorous armed forces. She expressed her dismay over the recent politicizing of the sacrifice of our two great soldiers who were disrespected to the unbearable level by the Pakistani soldiers in Poonch. Dr Andrabi said, “We as a nation have still to evolve as a proud union which deals very tough with the country’s enemies. We have to shun the appeasement policy which encourages anti-national forces within and out of the country.” Dr Darakhshan Andrabi appealed to the central government to shun its adhoc approach while dealing with the issues related to national integration and the safety and peace of the country. She said that when our security forces are doing their duties very satisfactorily after putting in the sacrifice of their lives and sweat, our politicians need to learn the ways and attitude of dealing with the sensitive national issues very toughly without doing cheap vote-bank politics.
