She said some forces with "dangerous agenda" are active on the ground to divide the people in the name of religion and region and their every attempt has to be defeated with firmness.

Expressing her resolve to establish a new system of justice and equality in the state, she said the aim of her party is to script a new chapter in the political history of the state by removing trust deficit among different regions.

She sought people’s cooperation in maintaining calm so that developmental initiatives can take shape.

Mehbooba, who heads PDP, asked her party cadres to reach out to all sections of the society to confront the emerging challenges posed by the different "divisive and subversive forces" in the state.

"Political subversion and uncertainty that the state has faced in the last seven decades has already taken a heavy toll on the state, its economy and human resources.

"It can ill-afford any further disruption and the attempts being made currently by some quarters to squeze the space for its residents will have to be met with maturity, wisdom, collective action and democratic assertion of our= rights," she said while addressing a meeting of the prominent leaders, office bearers, and party cadres.

She said her party will carry forward its agenda of political resolution, economic empowerment, good governance and employment generation and convert Jammu and Kashmir into a real welfare state.

Noting that this vision is mentioned in the party’s ‘Agenda of Alliance’ with BJP, she said her party has been able to inspire confidence among a majority of the people in all the regions of the state about its ability to solve the multiple problems faced by Jammu and Kashmir on political, economic, administrative and financial fronts.
