DPAP asks party leaders not to speak to media on sensitive issues without permission

Says lack of mutual regard, respect has lowered image of leaders in public

Srinagar: The Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) on Wednesday asked its leaders and spokespersons not to speak to the media on any sensitive or controversial issue without the permission of General Secretary Incharge of Media and Chief Spokesperson.

According a circular issued by the party chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad, a copy of which lies with KNO no leader, spokesperson or any individual of DPAP shall speak against or disrespect the sentiments of SC/ST or any other caste, region or religion as well as against any social or political organisation.

The circular has cited that during the past few years political scenario and thinking at national and state levels has totally changed and the mutual respect and regard which existed earlier for the leaders of other political parties has totally disappeared.

“It has generally been seen that both leaders and spokespersons of different political parties resort to mudslinging and sometimes not only use foul and unparliamentary language but also resort to abusive language”, reads the circular.

It reads that lack of mutual respect and regard has lowered the image of the leaders in the eyes of the public and society as a whole and the respect and confidence leaders enjoyed earlier does not exist anymore.

“No leader, spokesperson or any individual of DPAP shall henceforth speak against or disrespect the sentiments of SC/ST or any other caste, region or religion as well as against any social or political organisation”, it reads.

It further reads that no leader from DPAP will speak ill or make any personal attack against leaders of any other political parties and no leader shall misuse his/her official position to collect money in the name of the party.

“No spokesperson will speak to the media on any sensitive or controversial issue without the permission of General Secretary Incharge of Media RS Chib and chief spokesperson Salman Nizami”, it added.
