Peace not violence will pay dividend in J&K: Puneet Singh
JAMMU, June 6: Jammu and Kashmir People's Democratic
Party (PDP) leader from Jammu West Puneet Singh Jamwal
today said that peace and not the violence will pay dividends
to people of our state. He said youth have to play a bigger
role in this context and they must read the writing on the wall
that nothing short of peace will ensure their socio-economic
Referring to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's assertions that
dialogue was the only way forward, Puneet Singh Jamwal
said the first and foremost ingredient needed for the purpose
was end of bloodshed on the borders and as soon that's
achieved things will start calling in place. He was addressing
a meeting of youth workers of PDP at TophSherkhania today.
He said youth of Jammu and Kashmir are doing well in every
sphere of life but those who have been misguided need a
positive direction. Former chief minister Mufti Mohammad
Sayeed always wanted to replace footprints of security
agencies with that of tourists, young entrepreneurs, film

makers, developers, sportspersons and those contributing in
development of Jammu and Kashmir State.
He added that coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir
State is putting in its best foot forward by developing cricket
grounds, parks and colleges thereby creating opportunities for
youth. Liberal funding by union government too is a big
support for Jammu and Kashmir State and such opportunities
must not be let go waste.
Puneet Singh Jamwal made a fervent appeals to youth to
shun violence, be part of governance and speak about their
differences and issues on different forums created for the
purpose. The government be it at state or central level is
always open to talk to its own people and such opportunities
must be seized only to ensure that a consistency is
maintained in dialogue that is sure to pave a way for peace.
