Reacting over the statements of its leaders, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday said that the party would hold parleys with disgruntled leaders soon to address their grievances.
PDP chief spokesperson Rafi Ahmad Mir said that party has not taken any cognisance of the statements made by the disgruntled leaders as the party president Mehbooba Mufti is out of station. “Once the president arrives here we will discuss the issue. The (disgruntled) leaders are still part of the PDP. Once we start the party activities, we will hold parleys with them and we hope that the alienation would come to end,” he said.
“We hope that redressal of the grievances will be done and no harsh step will be taken against any of the leaders as they have played pivotal role in the party and were chosen by the former chief minister, late Mufti Muhammad Sayeed. We don’t want to harm the party,” he added.
“We appeal the party leaders that there is no need to get disgruntled as party leadership is putting every effort to do the best. We want to help the people and at present they need us. People may be against us but we have done whatever was possible during our tenure and will try to do in the future as well,” he said.
