Gear up for poll, Sham Lal tells party workers

Jammu, January 12

Describing the grass-roots level democratic institutions pivotal for the transformation of rural areas in terms of development, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee senior vice-president Sham Lal Sharma exhorted the cadre to gear up for the upcoming panchayat elections.

“Massive participation by the youth and women is imperative for ensuring their effective involvement in decision-making at the local level,” he said while addressing a Congress delegates’ meeting at Akhnoor.

Sharma exuded confidence that the sagacious voters would elect dedicated and public-spirited representatives, who would change the rural scenario by their innovative ideas. The development of rural areas and the improvement of civic amenities in urban and semi-urban areas assume significance in view of the population explosion and the growing needs of populace, he added.

Sharma said the ensuing elections would give a new dimension to political discourse in the state with politically sagacious people signalling a change to undo the wrongs committedby the present coalition government. —TNS
