What Shah Faesal Said While Launching a New Political Party

The former IAS officer has promised to bridge the gap between Pakistan and India to find a peaceful resolution to the Kashmir dispute.

Srinagar: Former IAS officer Shah Faesal launched a political party on Sunday – the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM) – with a promise to bridge the distance between New Delhi and Islamabad in order to resolve the Kashmir dispute.

“I have not come here to engage in traditional politics,” Faesal said while launching party in Srinagar.

The ceremony was held inside a park in Posh Rajbagh, which was festooned with banners and white flags carrying Faesal’s pictures.

“This party doesn’t belong to any particular religion or group. It is people’s party, and I invite all of you, particularly the youth, to join us,” Faesal said to a cheering crowd.

Faesal, who quit the services in January this year to protests against “unabated killings” in Kashmir, said his party will pursue a peaceful resolution to the Kashmir dispute, as per the will and aspirations of people in Jammu and Kashmir.“But this resolution has to come from India and Pakistan.

It is a long journey, but we can facilitate to bridge the distance between New Delhi and Pakistan,” said Faesal, who was the 2010 IAS topper.For more than two months now, Faesal has been meeting people to garner support and bring “like-minded individuals” into the fold.

“The party will take everybody along in an attempt to bring about sustainable peace in the state by making people politically empowered, economically prosperous, socially emancipated… and environmentally conscious,” reads the party’s vision document that was released hours before its lunch.

The document mentioned that the party will leverage J&K’s location as a gateway to Central Asia as a “Look up North centre for the subcontinent” and work for transforming the state as “corridor of peace”.
