“It is highly encouraging to see the people of the state braving all hardships & contributing towards restoration of peace and normalcy. I expect that you redouble your efforts to improve upon what has already been achieved,” she said while addressing the Party`s Zonal Presidents from Kashmir Valley in Srinagar.

Referring to the contribution of the party towards changing the political discourse in the entire subcontinent, she said that it is the sum total of individual efforts by our workers in creating a viable political alternative that advocated peace and dialogue.
