Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Tuesday emphasized the urgency for restoration of Statehood to J&K in order to overcome the simmering political disengagement prevalent among the people.

Addressing a meeting of JKAP leaders and prominent workers at party office in Gandhi Nagar-Jammu while maintaining the COVID-19 social and health protocol, Bukhari remarked that re-establishing J&K as a State would be a practical step to bring good governance, economic development and peace and stability to the region.
