Srinagar, July 19 : Former Deputy Director Health, Bashir Ahmad Chalkoo on Tuesday joined the Peoples Conference, a party spokesman said.
He was welcomed into the party fold by PC President Sajad Gani Lone. Chalkoo, who hails from border town of Uri in Baramulla district served in J&K’s health department for over three decades.
While welcoming Chalkoo, PC President Lone said that the entry of professionals indicates the positive impact the party has made among the people of J&K and that PC would hugely benefit from his experience in public life.
“..He has served in J&K’s health department at key positions and will hugely help the party especially in wake of insurmountable and tremendous challenges faced by the people of J&K. I am hopeful that the way the party is expanding, PC will emerge as a collective team to meet the challenges confronted by the people of Jammu & Kashmir,” Lone said.
Criticizing previous governments for considerably failing to realize the promises made to the people of Uri, Lone said that Uri has been totally ignored on the developmental front by the previous regimes.
“Peoples Conference will usher in a new era of economic and infrastructure development for this region and that the concerns of people of Uri would be addressed on priority if the party comes to power. We will make all efforts to develop Uri as tourist resorts to tap the tourist potential of this virgin valley and make Uri into a hub of tourism”, he added

He vowed to take forward the mission and agenda of the Peoples Conference with zeal and zest.
