Mir while paying floral tributes to Indira Gandhi expressed serious concern over the rising intolerance under BJP rule, which is being encouraged to polarize the situation for political gains, saying that the secular identity of the Country is in danger under BJP regime and time has come when all the right-thinking, secular people should rise to the occasion to defeat the communal and fascist agenda of saffron party.
Mir reiterated his appeal to the people to rise to the occasion to defeat the conspiracies being hatched by the BJP to divide people for electoral gains.
Recalling the services and sacrifices of Madam Gandhi, Mir said that nation has lost a strong and a great leader in the assassination of Indira Ji.
Madam Gandhi popularly known as Iron Lady never compromised on the sovereignty of the Country, fought against all internal and external elements posing threat to the nation,” he said.
The JKPCC chief said that the contribution made by her in nation building will always be remembered, leading the people of all shades using the path of peace, development and harmony.
