Indo-Pak border ceasefire
Welcoming the ceasefire agreement on the Indo-Pak border, LJP national spokesperson Sanjay Saraf said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir were most benefited by the silence on the borders. He said that both the countries would have to go one step further and work harder to create a peaceful atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir. He termed the negotiation process as the solution to all issues. The LJP has been advocating issues through dialogue since day one, and the steps taken by the central government are welcome. Calling guns a tool of destruction, he said guns do not solve problems and violence.

Cracking on Drug Dealers
Advocating for cracking down on death dealers involved in the spread of drugs, LJP national spokesperson said that every conscious human being should play the role in eradicating drugs. Saraf said that these drug dealers are not the enemies of any religion, nation or caste but they are the enemies of humanity. There is an enemy, and its eradication is necessary in any case. Saraf also appealed to the government and the administration to further mobilize the law enforcement agencies in this regard to curtail these dealers.
Demanding restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, Saraf said that now is the time to restore statehood in Jammu and Kashmir so that the situation becomes more conducive. Saraf said that giving back the status of state to Jammu and Kashmir is also in favor of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and the problems and situation that the people here have been facing for the last 30 years are still there.
Bad Conditions of Roads
Expressing anger over the dilapidated condition of roads in the valley due to snowfall during winter, he said that immediate steps should be taken to repair these roads. He said that in any country, state or region the prosperity and development depended on the good and better roads there.
