JK CM pays tributes to Beg, Shah
Paying tributes to these leaders and highlighting their contribution in the State’s socio-political and development fields, Omar described them stalwarts of political struggle and social justice. “They sacrificed a lot and tolerated the hardships to uphold the principles of democracy and people’s rights”, he added.
“Mirza Mohammad Afzal Beg was the close companion of Sher-i-Kashmir Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah and fought the battle for people’s rights and Kh. Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Shah has the distinction of working both with Sheikh Sahib as General Secretary of National Conference and with Qaid-i-Sani Dr. Farooq Abdullah as a senior Minister in his Cabinet”, Omar added.
The Chief Minister said that the contribution of Late Beg Sahib in translating the vision of ‘land to tiller’ envisioned by Sheikh Sahib into reality was remarkable, while the contributions of Kh. Ghulam Mohi-Ud-Din Shah as the head of the State Autonomy Committee and as General Secretary of National Conference are outstanding and glaring.
The Chief Minister said that National Conference has always been the party of great luminaries enjoying the trust and support of general masses. “Our endeavour should be to work towards achieving the goal of ‘Naya Kashmir’ in a missionary spirit where social justice and equitable development of all regions and sub-regions will rule the roast”, he said calling for fortifying and nurturing the high principles of secularism and democracy.
The Chief Minister prayed for the peace to the departed souls and wished well-being and prosperity to the people of the State.
