While Jammu and Ladakh regions were at the receiving end of discrimination, Dr. Jitendra Singh said the common masses in the Kashmir valley were also suffering on account of crumbling health and education infrastructure, traffic chaos and frequent road accidents, slow pace of development and denial of basic amenities. He declared that party leadership announced at Karyakarta Sammelan to take up these issues more vigorously in the coming days, both inside the assembly and on roads.
