Outlining his party's vision for revival and development of the historic city of Srinagar, Sayeed urged the city residents to join his mission for ending the political uncertainty and economic deprivation plaguing Jammu and Kashmir.
"I am here today asking for your support, your cooperation and your active participation, to give me a strong mandate for embarking on the challenging task of recovery, reconstruction, revival and reconciliation," he said addressing an election rally at Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium here.
Sayeed said the credibility of people gained by him in his more than five decades long political career is his main achievement and he will use this asset to pull Jammu and Kashmir out of its political uncertainties and economic deprivation.
"Time has come for the emancipated voters of Srinagar to take stock of what this historic city stands for and what they want it to stand for in the future," he said.
"Our future generations will judge us very harshly if we don't take advantage of this historic opportunity to change the destiny of the State and its people and defend its special status," he added.

Sayeed said PDP has emerged as a strong unifying force between regions and communities in the State, and the party would not allow the divisive forces to cause any harm to the distinct identity of Jammu and Kashmir.

"If you want people of Jammu and Kashmir to get emotionally connected with the rest of the country, you can't do so by creating division between Kashmir and Jammu, saying one thing there and another thing here," he said.
