HIRANAGAR, AUG 18: The Provincial President of NC Women Wing Satwant Kaur Dogra today called upon party workers to get ready for Panchayat and Urban Local Body elections and exhorted them to aim for victory in elections rather than ensuring the defeat of others.
“I wish to see our Women Workers as elected representatives and I hope that NC will come with flying colours in the upcoming ULB and Panchayat elections,” Satwant said.

While dwelling upon various initiatives taken by National Conference from time to time for the empowerment of women particularly living in far flung areas, she said that today every second doctor in J&K is a female and this could be achieved only due to the foresightedness of JKNC President Dr Farooq Abdullah who provided 50 pc reservation to women in MBBS.
