Sringar, Nov 2 (UNI) National Conference (NC), the main opposition party in Jammu and Kashmir, has decided to gear up its cadres for the coming state Assembly elections, scheduled to be held in September-October next year.
NC President Omar Abdullah decided to start a statewide campaign of road shows and public meetings to convince the people of the need to bring about a change in the next election.
This campaign would be used to educate the people of the state of the failures of the successive regimes of PDP's Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Ghulam Nabi Azad of the Congress.
In a meeting at NC's Nawa-i-Subah headquarters here, Mr Abdullah discussed the future strategy and programmes of the party.
He reiterated the NC's resolve to work for the uplift of the downtrodden, backward and the youth of the state and unfolded the future plans to the party leaders.
The NC chief expressed anguish at pain and sufferings of the people of the state due to the ''failure'' of the coalition government, which has only added to their miseries.
The increase in human rights violations, custodial killings, unemployment and failure of the administrative machinery were a matter of great concern, he asserted.
