People have social, political and economic interests in a peaceful environment: Altaf Bukhari
He said: “Unlike conventional political parties, the Apni party is determined to tell the truth to the people even if it does not bring us many late politicians. We won’t promise you the moon and stars, we’ll only promise you what we think we can accomplish.
He added that Apni Party tells the youths that the path of violence has given the people of this land nothing but destruction and miseries over the years. “So we need to avoid violence to pave the way for a peaceful environment that will eventually help us achieve everything that matters to people. Through peaceful means, we can also achieve the political and economic empowerment of the people,” Bukhari said.
Turning to traditional political parties, the chairman of the Apni party said, “Traditional political parties and their leaders have misled the popular masses for more than 75 years. One of the greatest leaders changed position from time to time like changing clothes. First he decided to go with India, then he started a so-called “plebiscite movement” here, then he returned to his previous position, and later he promised autonomy. In fact, all of his reversals were aimed at keeping power and creating a political empire and a legacy for his family and future generations.
“Then we had another party here that tried to convince us that they would fight against dynasty rule in J&K, but the leaders of that party eventually formed their own family rule here by deceiving people with slogans autonomy deceivers, Pakistan, dual currency and so on,” he added.
