Mr Slathia said that joining of the public spirited and dedicated activists will further strengthen National Conference bastion and help in reaching out to the vast mast of people for mitigating their difficulties. He said the party is natural choice for all those believing in secular ethos of Jammu and Kashmir and its inclusiveness.
