Srinagar: Ruling National Conference in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday asked the village representatives to utilise their powers for the welfare of poor and weak sections of the society.
Senior NC leader and state Finance Minister Abdul Rahim
Rather advocated following the footsteps of former state chief
minister Sheikh Abdullah, who staunchly supported the
decentralisation of powers from the corridors of secretariat
to the grass root level.

"We have to follow the road map conceived by the party
founder Sheikh Abdullah for addressing Kashmir issue within
the frame work of National Conference`s autonomy resolution,"
Rather said.

Abdullah was a staunch supporter of the decentralisation
of powers from the corridors of secretariat to the grass root
level, Rather said while addressing a public meet at Handwara,
90 kms from here

Taking forward his grandfather`s mission, Chief Minister
Omar Abdullah empowered Panchs and Sarpanchs to ensure their
active involvement in plan formulation and programme
implementation, he said.
Earler, Rather inaugurated the office of Additional Deputy
Commissioner, Handwara.

Taking a dig at the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party,
the minister alleged that except satiating their vested
interests, they never thought about the empowerment of the
common masses.
