Mehbooba welcomes Riyaz Ahmad into PDP

Srinagar, Jun 15 : Senior political activist Riyaz Ahmad from north Kashmir’s Pattan on Monday joined Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with PDP President Mehbooba Mufti welcoming him into the party fold.

Underscoring the need to strengthen the PDP, Riyaz said the basic reason for his joining the party is that it is the only force in Jammu and Kashmir’s political landscape that has a proven track-record of representing the people in a fearless manner.

He added that PDP President Mehbooba Mufti’s invincible courage to safeguard Jammu and Kashmir’s core interests and fighting for the Rasana case has been hailed even by her political opponents.

Riyaz further said that the determination exhibited by the PDP even during the trying circumstances for the protection of state’s unique identity and special position will be remembered for times to come and such astuteness was alien to the state till the emergence of the PDP.

Party President Mehbooba Mufti while welcoming the new entrant into the party fold expressed hope that his joining will strengthen the PDP further on ground and will make it emerge victorious once again.

Meanwhile, Riyaz Ahmad, according to party spokesman has been made incharge of north Kashmir’s Pattan constituency by the party president.
