Jammu, Jan 29 (UNI) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said his party was focussed on bringing complete peace and normalcy to Jammu and Kashmir through ''peaceful and amicable resolution'' of the Kashmir issue.
Addressing the PDP workers from Kokernag (Kashmir) at his residence here, Mr Sayeed said the poll verdict of 2002 was a testimony of the people's will and determination, which guarantees the durability of an eventual success of the party's agenda.
''The PDP went to people with the agenda of peace with dignity at a difficult time and obtained the mandate to act upon, pursuing its commitment with resolute conviction,'' he said.
''The past five years have witnessed changes of great significance and importance on both the political and economic fronts in J&K,'' the former Chief Minister said.
The PDP leader further said he would continue to work towards achieving the objective of ''sustainable and workable'' peace in the state and the region, as the popular belief in the envisioned objectives of the peace process had grown manifold during these years.
''The constituency of peace has not only become larger but is gaining strength day-by-day,'' he said, adding that the democratic institutions should be allowed to flourish and assert fully by entrusting greater responsibility to the instruments of the state administration in matters of governance and security.
