NC committed to ensure social justice, equality for underprivileged communities: Rattan Lal


Jammu, June 15 (KIP)-Rattan Lal Gupta Provincial President JKNC on Saturday assured the underprivileged communities including the Scheduled Castes (SC) that their rights and welfare will be prioritized under the party's leadership.

In a passionate commitment to social justice and equality, the senior NC leader criticized the current administration for neglecting the rights of marginalized communities. Highlighting the present dispensation's failure to ensure social justice, Rattan Lal Gupta emphasized the National Conference's dedication to creating a just and inclusive society.

The NC senior functionary was addressing the Provincial working committee meeting of NC’s SC Wing at Sher-e- Kashmir Bhavan, Jammu. The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Vijay Lochan Chairman JKNC SC Wing while Rattan Lal Gupta Provincial President Jammu Province was the chief guest, in the meeting.

In the meeting Mr Vijay Lochan informed the Senior leadership that the present government has consistently failed to address the prejudice faced by the underprivileged sections. The SC community has been particularly overlooked, with little to no effort made to uplift their socio-economic conditions under the realms of the present regime.

The Provincial President expressed concern over weaker sections not getting rights, rising unemployment and complete lack of avenues to ensure welfare of the underprivileged communities. He said that only NC has determination and will to ensure rights and justice to the weaker sections as there are umpteen such examples where NC leadership has taken daring steps to provide fair deal to the poor strata and deprived people with ‘land to tillers’ being the best step in this direction by party’s founder late Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah. The poor state of affairs of SC Financial Corporation and SC BC Boards created by the NC regime is testimony to the fact that the present regime believes in rhetoric only as on ground things are dismal, he added.

Rattan Lal Gupta said that the NC has pledged to implement comprehensive policies aimed at eradicating social disparities and ensuring equal opportunities for all. “The National Conference stands firmly with the SC community and all underprivileged sections of society. The party’s vision is to build a future where every individual, regardless of their social or economic background, has the opportunity to thrive. NC leaders are committed to restoring social justice and equality in Jammu and Kashmir,” he affirmed.

Speaking on the occasion, Sheikh Bashir Ahmed Provincial Secretary Jammu said that the National Conference calls upon all citizens to support this movement towards an equitable society and to hold the current administration accountable for its shortcomings.

Babu Jagjeevan Lal former minister, DDC Reasi and District President Reasi and Dr. Chaman Lal Bhagat former MLA Ramban addressed the meeting and assured the Party High Command that the NC's SC Cell will win all Assembly seats reserved for the SC community in the upcoming Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
