Srinagar: Former bureaucrat BA Runyal on Wednesday joined Peoples Democratic Party, which sought support of the residents of state for upcoming Assembly polls to establish a new system of "justice and equality" in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Let us work together to take process of change to its logical conclusion," he said.
He called upon the people to rise above narrow considerations and support the "progressive and visionary" agenda of the party for the inclusive growth and equitable development of the state.
"PDP is moving on the path of peace, reconciliation and good governance to establish a new system of justice and equality in the state...Resorting peace and accelerating equitable development is the one and only agenda of the party," he said.
Sayeed said it was the resolve of his party to establish accountable, transparent and corruption-free system in the state to provide equal opportunity of growth to every individual.
