In a bid to make deeper inroads in Jammu region People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has nominated Sr Advocate Anil Sethi as the spokesperson of PDP in J&K.
The statement issued by PDP said, “Adv Sethi hails from the illustrious family of secularists who have rendered unchallenged contributions to Jammu and Kashmir, ” The statement added ” Party President Mehbooba Mufti wished Adv Sethi all the best and hoped that he will effectively articulate the cause of people.”
Adv Anil Sethi who joined PDP recently is a renowned advocate from Jammu and scion of Sethi clan. The family had migrated to this part of J&K after partition and carved a niche in social and political circles. Adv Anil Sethi’s father Justice R P Sethi was a towering legal luminary from state and his brother, Adv Sunil Sethi is a senior BJP leader and party spokesperson.
The move to nominate Adv Sethi as party spokesperson carries a double weightage. At one end having a learned counsel as the spokesperson of a political party gives more depth and argument to party ideology and it’s percolation in masses and having the scion of Sethi clan adds more acceptability in masses.
